The corporate communications and HR profession celebrates again: Connect III. Official trailer

With more than 120 professional speakers at this year's Connect Conference, we look forward to discussing the latest innovations, challenges, and areas of most concern to us all in the communications and HR profession. And, as in previous years, we'll be bringing you a whole host of innovations. Top experts, top-quality professional content, and fun networking will spice up Connect 2024, which will take place on 11 April this year, just in time for Poetry Day.

The unmissable - featured topics, keynote speakers 

This year, we are focusing prominently on social marketing, as well as the relationship between civil organizations and companies. The topicality of the subject has sharply increased in recent times, and there is plenty to delve into. If you wish to gain deeper insights and explore unconventional approaches to social marketing, then you should attend the presentation titled "Doing Good: Empathy or Necessity? – Social Marketing and CSR" by Fabiola Kopasz, the Strategic Director of Gazair, and Béla Szabó, the Director of Brand and Commercial Communications at Magyar Telekom. Following this, it is worth watching the roundtable discussion titled "If the world is for sale, how do we change it? – Social Issues and Corporate Interactions," featuring four additional CSR and sustainability leaders.

Our returning speaker is Gábor Varga G. (Uniomedia), who will be leading a whole session at Connect this year, and his presentation on The personal branding team game will help you navigate the fantastic and intricate labyrinth of self-branding. This fascinating talk is definitely for you if you want to take your branding to the next level.  

How "tabloid" can internal communication be? - Csaba Azurák will moderate a discussion with Péter Pantl (MOL) and Ádám Szinai (CIB Bank) on the relationship between internal communication and tabloid content. This entertaining panel should be a recipe for all internal content producers - but we'd better just give you a heads-up to come and listen live on the spot!
