Corporate engagement is a subject creating a lot of buzz from both sides of the fence – companies and NGOs. Today, it has evolved from being a “cost” to more sophisticated forms of engagement such as public-private partnerships (PPPs). The management of communications becomes therefore more complex and demands skills beyond traditional communications toolkits. This presentation will focus on the processes and new skills needed to develop and implement effective communications strategies around the partnerships involving actors from both the private and public sectors. It will be presented by two speakers from the the Advocacy & International Affairs Executive Certificate offered by the Graduate Institute in Geneva.

Places are limited due to the venue size, so please register early for the event.
