Davos, Switzerland – The main global annual event Davos Online Communications Summit 2021, organized by the World Communications Forum Association (WCFA), is set to address the critical communications and leadership issues that have dominated the Public Relations industry during a turbulent 2020 and how education is responding to COVID-19. Dr. Clāra Ly-Le, Managing Director of EloQ Communications and WCFA’s global executive board member, will join and lead a panel discussion on “Merge between PR, Advertising & Digital – does it create a new business?”
The Summit is uniting outstanding professional speakers from different parts of the world who will participate in keynote speeches, thought-provoking virtual panel discussions and Q&A sessions.
WCFA’s President Maxim Behar said: “We have been doing Communications Summits in Davos, Switzerland for more than ten years and going online is expected to make the event bigger and more impactful than ever before. It will bring together the global public relations industry to people’s screens, giving them an opportunity to engage in a great learning and networking environment with high-levelled professionals from all around the world.”
Dr. Ly-Le expressed her excitement to join the Summit: “Southeast Asia (SEA), and Vietnam in particular, has always been viewed as the ‘less-developed area’ of the PR industry. Despite the non-stop efforts to improve service standards, little recognition has been given to PR professionals and the PR industry in this part of the world. I am glad to join the event and moderate a session to further build a reputation and empower Vietnamese PR practitioners’ voices in the global PR landscape. I hope that in future regional or international PR and communications conferences, people will have a different view on SEA and Vietnam’s PR industry.”
Dr. Ly-Le session is joined by ORCA Affairs CEO and ex IPREX Global President Michael Schroeder, Global Alliance for Public Relations and Communication Management President Justin Green, Peterson Integrated Communications CEO Peter Mutie, PR Newswire Country Manager Mai Anh Le. The full event has confirmed other notable professionals from over 20 countries to ensure diverse and thought-provoking discussions.
The Summit, titled “Leadership during Turbulent Times”, will start on February 25 at 3 pm Central Europe, 2 pm London or 9 am New York. The event will be free for all participants here:
