DeSalva said, “As strategic communications leaders, our work has never mattered more. While today’s risk environment for businesses globally remains elevated, the opportunity for transformation also is expanding – especially given the pace of technological change. Today more than ever, business leaders are relying on intelligent communications strategy to ensure that the convergence of innovation, risk, and reputation can be successfully navigated. Getting this equation right unlocks the real potential for creative transformation and long-term sustainable value. I hope you can join me, alongside many great minds from across the PR and communications spectrum, to discuss how we can meet this moment, when we gather in Warsaw this October.”
