The International Association of Business Communicators (IABC) is accepting speaking proposals for its EuroComm Conference in London, UK, 27-28 March 2017. We are calling for dynamic speakers who can engage, inspire and inform audiences on all facets of the communications profession.

The #EuroComm17 conference theme is Transformation: Adapt • Invent • Evolve

IABC is the largest global association for communication professionals with over 10,000 members. The annual EuroComm conference annually draws more than a hundred senior communicators from over 20 countries throughout the EMENA region. Our delegates – an audience of members and non-members alike – attend EuroComm for access to leading-edge knowledge that expands their skills and advances their careers. They are senior communications professionals who have 10+ years of experience in multi-national organisations.

This year, presentations will cover everything from constantly reinventing ourselves as communications professionals, to keeping pace with technology, to navigating the ever-changing political, social and workplace landscape.

Participation in the conference provides speakers with the opportunity to gain visibility and recognition as a subject matter expert in front of influential business communication professionals from a wide variety of industries.
