  • Topic of today’s presentation : - New Corporate Communication thinking - emerging - Shift of paradigms - Old concept of messaging – channel definition – target groups – penetrating the message until target groups have measurably understood the message -> mass marketing - New concept: dialogue with stakeholders You might argue that not really new . Corporates always needed to talk to their stakeholders and have an ongoing dialogue. That’s correct. There are a few trends, however , which change the name of the game: 1. Proliferation of the internet / New innovative tools / social Media 2. Increasing number of stakeholders / importance to find a balance between a companies position and society’s needs. / New balance between purpose and performance. Values. 3. Globalization – Access to information – cheap diffusion 4. A new media cycle which doesn’t start of end with mainstream media anymore -> New playing field for Corporates
