The 3rd International Conference on Corporate and Marketing Communication (ICCOMAC)



The findings of Burson-Marsteller’s crisis survey in end of 2015 emphasize we are living through a disruptive era with communicators facing a perfect storm of challenges. The upturn in the global economy has seen new brands enter old markets and small innovators rapidly expand, challenging traditional brands. In this year’s research the threat posed by the arrival of these “disruptive innovators” has risen to the top of the list of potential crises a business may face.  No example could have illustrated this better than the news of Paris and Jakarta being gridlocked by angry taxi drivers over the mobile application ‘Uber’, and the ‘anarchy justice’ by motor-cycle taxis – known as ‘ojek’ – over the presence of mobile-driven apps of ‘Grab’ and ‘Go-jek’. 

At the same time, the online revolution has made it easier than ever before for individuals and groups to attack or organize activity against a business. Cyber hackers can access data, armchair campaigners, and “clicktivists”, can protest from their living rooms and pressure governments and regulators to act. And this is all set against a backdrop of a massive erosion in the trust the public places on the words and actions of big business. So how should communicators respond?

At the World Economic Forum, the disruptions reshaping every industry was dubbed as the ‘Fourth Industrial Revolution’. Most executives recognize that leveraging digital solutions is an effective, efficient way to streamline business. Digital technologies have several components – software platforms, mobile apps, data analytics, and industrial internet of things – which can be integrated to create a powerful competitive advantage and new enterprises that will profound effects to companies and people.

This is the discussion that ICCOMAC would like to initiate at its third conference. In short, how communicators can live their corporate purposes and focus on the customers, and at the same time able plan for any changes or crisis in unpredicted disruptive situations.


Theme:  Managing Communication in a Disruptive Era
