Synopsis

ESG performance has a major impact on consumer value creation. Today consumers and investors hold businesses accountable for their environmental and societal performance, with Marketing and PR professionals facing several strategic questions: What are the most relevant ESG strategies/ tactics to implement? How do you engage internal and external audiences? How do you tell your story to media and consumers in a truthful, yet impactful way? How do you measure performance?  

After a highly engaging session in April, we are now inviting you to join us again for a knowledge sharing event and discussion session. The workshop will kick off with an inspirational keynote speech on PR industry trends based on recent academic research, followed by break-out discussions on three topics: employee engagement, ESG content creation and performance measurement.

The discussions will be moderated by Preeti Gupta, Corporate Affairs Director and Sustainability Lead, BMW Group Asia and Zsofia Balatoni Chief Strategy Officer, Rothman & Roman Group.
