Chaotic times have a way of reordering reality and, in the process, creating new norms and changing mindsets. At StratCommWorld 2022, we have a unique opportunity to reconnect, learn from recent events, and reimagine how we do things in government, industries, and society. Join us for an engaging look at best practices in leadership, digital technology, crisis management, and strategic communication during these turbulent times.

What is StratCommWorld?

Updated for 2022 and the decade ahead, StratCommWorld is the new name for the annual Strategic Communications Summit.

With a fresh format and new venue, StratCommWorld builds on a decade of success assembling a global group of high-level speakers and delegates from corporations, the military, government, the Intelligence Community and NGOs.

StratCommWorld is not your typical conference. It's your connection to networking with globally minded experts and communication strategies that challenge the status quo.

Enter our world - StratCommWorld - to refine your leadership skills, network with experts and gain new career opportunities.

Why is this Conference for me?

Unlike other conferences that are focused on quantity over quality, StratCommWorld strives to ensure high quality engagement with expert speakers and valuable networking with peers. This is a strategic communication conference fueled by passion and driven by professional growth.

Key Topics StratCommWorld

  • LEADERSHIP - Leaders in both the military and private sectors cite the same top challenges, but with some important differences in priority and magnitude which require targeted skills. What are the challenges associated with leading in the public vs. private sector?
  • ALIGNING VALUES - Every successful company strives to connect to its core values, but sometimes it's not easy. Politics has been creeping into brand identity for a while. Learn how to make value-based moves.
  • DIGITAL CRISIS MANAGEMENT - StratCommWorld offers a behind-the-scenes look at the methods effective Public Information Officers use to connect and communicate during and after tragic events and natural disasters - despite the madness going on around them.
  • GLOBAL ENGAGEMENT - Each year at StratCommWorld we feature leading brands that are growing globally, expanding their offer, optimizing the customer experience, and connecting with audiences using breakthrough digital and social media strategies.
  • MACHINE LEARNING - Incredible advances are occurring in our ability to use machine learning and other types of artificial intelligence to assist multiple functions within organizations and especially the customer experience. For communicators, AI can improve message delivery by tailoring an approach.
