About the Program

The dust has barely cleared in the race to succeed Mayor Bloomberg in New York City Hall. Now it’s time to ask the experts, George Arzt and Peter Peyser, both with ample experience in New York City government, politics and communications, to give us their insights:

  • What can corporate communicators learn from the hotly contested campaign?
  • How did the various camps cope with crises? (And there were plenty!)
  • Which strategies paid off?
  • Which didn’t and why?

Stuart Goldstein, with a background in political campaigning in New Jersey and a long history as a senior corporate communication executive, will moderate the discussion bridging the worlds of political and corporate communication.

Don’t miss what’s sure to be a lively and enlightening panel.
