Idea Sharing for Corporate Communicators in a Conservation World

WHC Communications Summit
Wednesday, November 14, 2018  |  9:15 am – 11:45 am
Hilton Baltimore, 401 W Pratt St, Baltimore, MD 21201

News about a company’s conservation activities often takes a back seat to more urgent and bottom-line related topics such as products, manufacturing, safety and policy. However, the work corporations are doing on-the-ground is imperative to advancing positive global biodiversity impacts, which in turn can help companies meet financial, sustainability and community relations goals.

This invitation-only meeting will gather communicators, as well as sustainability professionals who have a communications or marketing role, to share best practices on how to create spaces for news about conservation and biodiversity. In doing so, we not only shine a light on the work we are doing, but act as influencers to other like-minded corporations.

  • External Communications – Aligning Strategies and Tactics with Business Objectives
  • Internal Communications – Building Enthusiasm and Commitment from Employees…and the C-Suite
  • Storytelling – Finding the Best (and Easiest) Stories to Tell
