With the current volatility in oil prices, and groups like the Alberta Council of Technologies calling for leaders to "think ahead, shrink expectations and act quickly," organizations need more talent and capacity than ever to keep pace with change and drive sustainability. That means being more in tune with the dynamics we're seeing in the 21st century and, ultimately, more responsive to increasing strategic and operational complexity.

Blazing the trail: new century, new approaches to communication is a one-day, first-of-its-kind symposium designed to engage senior practitioners, managers and executives in defining key issues around the changing role of communication as an increasingly critical component of overall organizational strategy.
