Frankfurt Insight Forum

Please join us for a special Page Insight Forum in Frankfurt on Thursday, January 23, 2020 hosted by Marc Cloosterman, CEO of VIM Group, and Peter Debreceny, International Vice President of Page. We will also feature presentations from Jon Iwata and Dr. Christopher Storck. This would be a great opportunity for you to take in the best and most current thought leadership research in our field, and connect with your to meet some seasoned peers. Jon is the former Chief Communications Officer and Chief Marketing Officer of IBM and has led the Page thought leadership research on the future of our profession for the last two years. Very recently, the findings of this research have been published in a report titled: The CCO as Pacesetter. Jon will take us through the research findings and insights, as well as their implications for both our profession and your work going forward. Peter Debreceny, International Vice President of Page will be joining us to share the Page’s latest developments. Peter has a wealth of strategic communications experience, built up over the last forty years, both in CCO roles and in agency leadership positions. Dr. Christopher Storck will share his views on how transformation under the signs of digitalization and global integration presents top managers with enormous new challenges. Together, we’ll explore how professional communicators can grow beyond their previous roles in order to organize communication processes in which employees and external stakeholders participate constructively. Christopher is partner at HeringSchuppener and professor of Strategy and Communication Management at Quadriga University. We’ll close the forum program with drinks from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m., and in the evening you’re also invited to join us for dinner. The maximum number of attendees for the forum and the dinner will be 20, and Chatham House rules will apply. For Page and Page Up members, attendance is complimentary. For non-Page members a fee of $220 (Euro 200) will be charged for participation.
