Tuesday 30 June 2020, 5.30pm. Your Living Room.

Whether you work in internal comms, a PR agency, media relations, public affairs, or change communications, you will no doubt have been pulled into reacting to coronavirus.

From the initial shock and crisis response, to maintaining operations during the lockdown, leaders are now scratching their heads as to how to survive this unprecedented crisis and the ensuing economic impact.

Whether we are communicating difficult decisions about our people; repositioning brands in light of the changing landscape; or communicating radical new strategies to get through the pandemic, how can PR and communications best support our organisations and advise on long term recovery strategies?

Grab a drink in the comfort of your own home and join our panel of experts to hear about the ways in which our industry holds the secret to sustainability in these troubling times. We want to give you the opportunity to share your experiences and tips with Oxford’s buzzing community of public relations professionals.

Speakers on the night will be: 

  • James Colman, Director of Public Affairs and Communications, University of Oxford
