Join us to explore how think tanks can adapt to a changing communications environment and ensure that our ideas continue to cut through despite stiff competition and scarce resources.

This free SMF event hosted by ODI will include contributions from the panel on: the past, present and future of think tank communications; developing an award-winning digital strategy; and how traditional media adapt to digital. This will be followed by a question and answer session and audience discussion on the future of think tank communications.

The event is aimed at communications and research staff at think tanks, research institutes and policy-focused charities. It is a rare opportunity to meet colleagues from other think tanks, share ideas and discuss how think tanks can develop and strengthen our output to adapt to an increasingly digital future.

The event will be streamed live online. To register for online streaming, please visit the ODI website.
