Effective leadership and communication strategies in a digital society
How has the rise of digital societies impacted communication and leadership? Have digital tools empowered individuals to better influence change, or have they perhaps had an opposite effect?

This talk will seek to answer both questions by exploring how leadership and communication have evolved throughout history, and what actually constitute effective communication and effective leadership. In particular, we will explore whether transformational leadership is still possible in a digital age of fake news, reduced public trust and societal challenges. Finally, we will discuss the challenges and opportunities offered by social media tools such as Facebook for communication and leadership purposes
