how to build, launch, position and maintain an executive brand in an integrated age

Currently in his second Vice Presidential stint at a global public relations agency, James Walker has driven business objectives for corporations, global non-profits and municipalities around the world. For the past decade, he's developed his public relations chops building the business side of several global agencies.

The desire for engaging and authentic communication from executive teams increases by the day, but companies, consultants, and top executives remain hesitant to make full use of the multi-channel spectrum available to them when connecting with their target audiences. In this integrated age, true success in communications comes from having a strong traditionally-driven platform that is digitally-amplified.

In this session, James S. Walker, Vice President –Digital  at Ruder Finn and founder of the corporate communications blog One Quick Point, will walk you through the steps to build, launch and maintain an executive brand in an integrated age. This session is great for both individuals looking to build their executive personal brand and professionals responsible for executive communications within larger organizations.
