The EACD is happy to announce the upcoming EACD Anniversary Event in Athens on November 3rd from 6.00pm to 8.00pm.

The event will take place at the Hilton Hotel in Athens and will focus on the topic of Communications and Social Acceptance in Business.

The purpose and societal context of business is essential when communicating with stakeholders authentically. In other words, social legitimacy is the unwritten contract between society and business. But what is the communicators role in the process of creating further value and ensuring that organisations secure sufficient social legitimacy? How to create meaningful relationships and interact with stakeholders authentically? These are some of the questions we will tackle at our anniversary event in Athens.
