Once again, Weber Shandwick is proud to be a headline sponsor of the Holmes Report In2Summit Africa, an event designed to explore the continent’s rapidly evolving communications landscape.

The event will be held on 29 March in Johannesburg, South Africa. The In2Summit series is designed for senior practitioners to address the critical issues impacting engagement, ranging from analytics, digital tech and content marketing, to big data, visual storytelling and new talent.

For the first session of the day, Weber Shandwick EMEA & Asia Chairman Tim Sutton and Moky Makura, Country Representative for the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, will take a look at how Africa’s PR industry evolution might compare and contrast with the European and Asian experiences, and explore how communications – from digital, media relations and storytelling, to reputation management, public affairs and advocacy – can help brands and businesses meet the challenges and embrace the opportunities of this extraordinarily diverse region.​

Sub-Saharan Africa, with all its rich geopolitical, cultural and linguistic complexity, is clearly on the cusp of an exciting period of growth. While some challenges remain, Africa has the potential to exert a greater weight and voice on the world, as the pace of its change accelerates.
