The role of Corporate Excellence - Centre for Reputation Leadership in the Global Alliance will stand out for leading the project "The Global Communication Model" in which we will advance, as their knowledge partners, towards the identification of the keys of the new corporate communication model, updating and revitalizing The Melbourne Mandate:

In 2012, the traditional communication model did not respond to the challenges of the new digital era. That is why The Global Alliance for Public Relations and Communication Management adopted The Melbourne Mandate, a research-based vision of the communicative organization and the emerging role and value of public relations and communication management. While The Melbourne Mandate remains both relevant and aspirational, the increasing value of intangible assets in companies and the consolidation of the “reputation economy”, create a need and opportunity to review and renew it, with a holistic view to making it a durable, sustainable and global consensus-based expression of what is the future of communication and intangible assets management.

"The Global Communication Model" will be presented in 2020 at the World Public Relation Forum to be held in Auckland, New Zealand. Meanwhile, you can check more information about the Global Alliance Annual General Meeting by clicking here.
