BAI Strategic Communications Executive Roundtable

BAI Strategic Communications Executive Roundtable represents the only peer networking group of its kind, focusing exclusively on senior communications executives in retail financial services.

Technology and innovation has been top of mind as banks continue to compete in an environment heavily driven by leading retail experiences. However, there are also implications for the Strategic Communications arms of financial services to draw on employee experience for credible information and create simple, streamlined experiences internally. Not only should Strategic Communications protect the brand and improve reputation, it should be leveraged to attract talent – which is critical to success at all financial institutions.

The BAI Strategic Communications Executive Roundtable is designed for experienced senior leaders with executive responsibility for enterprise-wide communications, developing and overseeing executive and internal communications to strengthen corporate brand and reputation. Related functions might also include media relations, corporate affairs, etc.

Through industry collaboration, this roundtable will provide an environment for strategic communications executives to share best practices and build a network of colleagues with similar responsibilities. This collaboration may also identify ways to strengthen the reputation of the banking industry as one that attracts top talent and drives positive change.

Join us to discuss relevant, emerging issues and exchange best practices with peers!
