Agency Comms IN FOCUS
Signal and Noise
Remember that saying about living in interesting times? This is the state of the world and the communications and marketing industry in 2020: the most unpredictable year of our lifetimes. If ever organizations depended on the strategic and steady guidance of agency communications, it’s now.
Communications leads are agencies’ guiding compass, navigating challenges at all levels and specializing in you-name-it: media relations, internal communications, thought leadership, event planning, community management, presentation coaching, speechwriting—and, yes, crisis management. As we’ve moved through the unprecedented challenges of 2020, making critical decisions and taking significant actions for your organizations, new tools and skills are required. It’s time to regroup and prepare for the year ahead.
Before we convene for our Agency Comms Summit in 2021, please join us on Thursday, Nov. 12, 2020, for 4A’s Agency Comms IN FOCUS: an afternoon of insightful virtual content exploring the best of what we’ve learned and how to prepare for the recovery and revival in 2021. 4A’s Agency Comms IN FOCUS will feature honest conversations with top journalists and best-in-class industry partners as we collectively define our new tools for survival.
4A’s Agency Comms IN FOCUS will explore ideas, tools, and strategies to help communicators thrive in the new normal.

4A’s may in rare instances, and on short notice, need to reschedule or even cancel a program or may need to substitute a speaker; this may be caused, for example, by severe weather or other force majeure events. We will provide the earliest notice that we are reasonably able to provide under those circumstances. In situations where 4A’s cancels or reschedules a program, we will notify you of any applicable refund terms.
