IABC Africa has announced the opening of registration for the IABC Africa Conference 2016, the annual conference designed by and for communication professionals on the forefront of strategic innovation in the field. The theme for this year’s conference is innovating business communication, covering a myriad of topics including the new skills-set required of communicators in a rapidly changing landscape. The conference will hold from 2 to 4 November 2016, at the Vineyard Hotel and Spa in Cape Town.  An early bird rate is available until 31 July 2016.

The conference will host more than 15 distinguished panellists and speakers, including business leaders, communicators, reputation and crisis management experts, students, and consultants. Presenters include communication expert Robin Russell McCasland from Fort Worth Texas; Janine Lazarus, media, and reputation specialist; and GertSchoeman, head of communication at Anglo American Platinum, among others. Closing off the first day of the conference, communication specialist Daniel Munslow will chair a panel discussion with leading communication practitioners about the skills readiness for 2020.

“We are very excited about the level of enthusiasm we have received from speakers, sponsors, and attendees for this annual conference on business communication,” says Daniel Munslow, past chair of IABC Africa and a member of the IABC International Executive Board. “We look forward to bringing together the many communication leaders in our profession for a substantive discussion of real-world solutions to key issues facing the industry today.”

“The speakers at the IABC Africa conference represent many important facets of the communication profession – the consultants, industry, government, non-profits, and thought leaders,” said Carol Allers, Chair of IABC Africa. “We feel that it is important that all stakeholders are given a platform to share their knowledge and experience as we work toward driving an understanding of the key skills communicators need, to stay on top of their game in the years to come.”

Topics include: ‘youthification’, agility, digital communication, risk and resilience, leadership, strategic measurement, business acumen, crisis communication, and cross-cultural communication.

The main sponsor for the conference is DevCom, a leading South African agency specialising in development communication.
