Participant Feedback

The CCI Leaders Forum gives attendees the opportunity to not only learn from our country’s leading communicators, but also network and learn from peers. I highly recommend this program to anyone in communication who is looking to broaden their horizons in all aspects of communication strategy and execution.

It was a true revelation that corporations and government organizations face and tackle very similar challenges in communication. This Forum was an excellent opportunity to learn about the latest trends and best practice in corporate communication.

The Leaders Forum is a well-executed and insightful platform where communication practitioners from all over the world can gather, network, and share best practices. Well done!

Provided a needed jolt to start thinking and behaving more strategically as a leader and counselor.

Excellent – challenging learning … took us places we could not go by ourselves.

Enjoyed the real-time examples from leading practitioners.

Excellent, excellent, excellent! It was amazing to have access to the top leaders in our industry.

Site visits added fantastic value to the program.

This forum brings together theory and practice in a useful, motivating way. Thank you for an incredible experience!
