Past Feedback from Conference Presenters and Participants

CCI will challenge you with a great blend of practice and theory, global networking opportunities, and new ways to define the corporate communication profession in the digital age.

The CCI Conference is always unique in that it brings together a blend of academics and practitioners, a very rare admixture in the field of corporate communications.

The diversity and quality of original research and case studies truly made this a worthwhile and exciting event.

I was impressed by the way the CCI Conference brought together such a wide range of academic and industry perspectives and research on corporate communication issues from across the world. We need this kind of global conversation more than ever.

The conference was perfect! Communication is the name of the game, and it was useful, stimulating and fun to meet and interact with so many colleagues. I think it helped us all keep abreast of the best in the field. Thank you!

One of the best conferences on corporate communication I’ve attended.

One of the rare occasions where academics and practitioners of corporate communication truly communicate — inspiring!
