Shaping Culture through Transformation: A Joint IABC NSW and IABC Victoria event Events

This event is SOLD OUT!

What cultural traits help an organisation transform faster? What’s the best role for communication professionals to play in shaping culture and what are the most effective tactics for embedding new mindsets and ways of working?

A global study found that 96% of companies are in the midst of organisational transformation, including mergers and acquisitions, business model changes, strategy shifts, and digitalisation. Yet two out of three planned changes are unsuccessful — often due to cultural barriers and change resistance. In light of this, communication professionals must help to shape their organisation’s culture to keep pace with — even accelerate — transformation goals.

Join us on Tuesday 20 November in Sydney or Thursday 22 November in Melbourneto hear from two industry experts who will give you the information and insights you need to tackle these challenges in your organisation.
