THIS EVENT WILL BE VIRTUAL.
Event Type: Group Event
No one in communications and engagement is going to forget 2020 in a hurry; Covid, Black Lives Matter, the US president who wouldn’t give up and endless video calls when people forgot to unmute themselves!
Join the PRCA #ChatAndConnect crew to review the year over a glass of mulled wine or hot chocolate on Thursday 17 December at 1700 GMT. We’ll be looking at some of the big innovations in communications in the last 12 months, reflecting on life running in-house comms and asking whether 2020 was finally when Diversity and Inclusion landed properly on the corporate agenda.
#ChatAndConnect is quite simple – Question and Retain’s Annabel Dunstan and Donhead Consultants’ Liam FitzPatrick chat to three guests on Zoom in a chat show format. But unlike the TV, the audience gets to chip in, tell stories, crack jokes or even shed a tear or two. You don’t have to be a PRCA member to join – you don’t even have to be in the UK! And there is no charge; all you need to bring is your own snacks and a willingness to chat.
Our guests on December will be:
• Jenny Clark, Director of Internal Communications at omni-channel retailer QVC where she looks after an international audience that includes onscreen talent, production teams and logistics colleagues in Germany, Italy, Japan, Poland and the UK. Her past communications experience includes diamond miner De Beers Group and professional services firm PwC. As a communications leader she believes strongly in developing the skills of the people around her and in the importance of clear narrative.
• Marc Wright runs Simply Communicate, the digital home for communicators. As well as providing resources and inspiration to internal communicators, Simply organise some of the best attended conferences in the sector and closely track innovations and developments in practice and technology.
• Kamiqua Pearce, founder and CEO of Coldr, a strategic communications and inclusive business consultancy, is a senior PR consultant and inclusion change-maker. Her experience includes working with brands big and small including Coca Cola, Belvita Breakfast, Aldi, Converse, Hertz, Nurofen and the National Citizen Service (NCS).
