What is one the most fundamental elements of everything. That’s everything we do, everything we try, everything we develop...everything? 

COMMUNICATION 

Apparently we first started talking to each other over half a million years ago and here we are now ‘communicating’ in short sound bites through anonymous channels. No wonder everything is taking longer as we revisit communications to understand where we missed the message because we were distracted elsewhere and have to do it all again.
No wonder we feel totally confused when we discover that the message we received was manipulated to serve another purpose. No wonder individuals, organisations and countries feel in a state of flux as communication evaporates!

Anyway, enough of the rant and on to the next ICETALK

Here’s what we’ll be doing.

There’s a lot of noise to cut through to gain and keep your audience’s attention. If you’re not aligned internally on brand experience and event execution, you’ll make less of an impact. We’ll explore Siemens’ case study and exchange ideas on effectively executing upon an event design brief by maximising every internal touchpoint.

Learner outcomes
