Meanwhile, PwC director Sonia Clarke, Ogilvy PR chief growth officer Jacquie Potter, and Character + Distinction managing director Kate Dinon will partake in a panel discussion exploring and analysing the trends of the industry as they discuss the future of communications.

In an ever-changing industry, where tomorrow’s PR and comms professionals will face change and challenges like never before, the team will discuss what you, your brand and your business need to do today in order to stay ahead of the game.
