What challenges and opportunities do the Olympics present for Comms pros?

How can you ensure your organisation makes the most of and copes with the London 2012 Olympics?

The scale of the London 2012 Olympics is staggering. It is the biggest sporting event to come to the UK and includes 34 venues, 70,000 volunteers, 20,000 journalists, 17,000 athletes from 205 companies, and 10.8 million tickets. Phew!

Corporate Comms professionals can now get a helping hand to look at the opportunities and challenges provided by the Olympics including how to engage with both internal and external audiences and maintaining the information flow.

A free webcast is taking place on 20 March at noon (GMT) for Comms pros, moderated by Andrew Thomas, Publisher of Communicate Magazine. It will look at employee engagement and internal communications during the Summer and is called London 2012 Olympics and the Communications Flow. I think this is a great idea and am hoping to participate.

The speakers will be Steve Doswell, Chief Executive of the Institute of Internal Communications (IoIC) and Rowland Jack, International Sports Consultant, Hill+Knowlton Strategies.
