Global communication conclave to focus on disruption

Bengaluru, Dec 18 (IANS) With a focus on disruption that all activities are facing in one form or the other, premier communicators’ organisation Public Relations Council of India (PRCI) will hold its 11th Global Communication Conclave here on March 3-5.

PRCI, the pan-India platform of PR, media, advertising, HR professionals and academicians, expects over 500 delegates from across these fields to participate in the interactive conclave.

PRCI Chairman Emeritus and Chief Mentor M.B. Jayaram said: “Be it the media, communication, politics, economy, science, religion, education, energy, health, relationships and even the way we think — disruption seems to be impacting our lives at every step. We hope the deliberations at the Conclave will lead to exchange of thoughts and clearing the air around disruption.”

“The theme is planned with a question mark — Disruption? — to make the communication professionals think, ask themselves and, probably, come to a conclusion in this ‘Manthan’ or the churning of thoughts,” said B.N. Kumar, PRCI National Executive President.

“Yes, the three-day deliberations will see communication, media and tech professionals, corporate honchos, government officials and policy-makers interacting and ideating on a wide gamut of aspects related to Disruption,” explained PRCI Governing Council Chairman R.T. Kumar.

“PRCI has successfully organised its previous Global Communication Conclaves at Kolkata, New Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Hyderabad and Chandigarh. Headquartered at Bengaluru, PRCI has its chapters across India. PRCI began to spread its footprint globally by opening its first international chapter in the UAE and several other global centres are in the pipeline,” he added.

PRCI encourages budding communication professionals through its YCC (Young Communicators Club) across various colleges teaching PR, journalism and advertising.

In fact, the third day of the Conclave will focus on the youth, Ms Geetha Shankar, YCC Chairperson, said. The theme for the session is: Are We Ready for The Future?

Continuing its tradition, PRCI will present its signature Chanakya Awards to recognise the outstanding contributions in Corporate Services and Communication, induct professionals with exemplary performance into PR Hall of Fame and felicitate winners of Corporate Collateral Awards under a host of categories.
