The energy industry is facing unprecedent technological, human and reputation challenges which an open, trust based and engaging dialogue with a very complex stakeholder mix, could help address. The ELP’s mission is to demonstrate the value that strategic communication can bring to the energy industry – an area of growing importance considering the changing nature of work including skills shortage, an aging workforce and how to risk-proof new talent. Having PR practitioners address such a prestigious event is a world first and I look forward to discussing these timely issues with my fellow panelists and the energy leaders attending this session.

The CIPR are very pleased to have the opportunity to address this esteemed event. This year’s WEC gives us a great opportunity to engage with decision makers in an important sector. We are particularly glad to discuss future talent – an issue of importance both to the energy sector specifically and to public relations more widely.
