Days to go until Comms Reboot


What's an 'unconference'?

Comms Reboot is a full-day communications event like no other. As an ‘unconference’, there is no set agenda. The goal is for you to enjoy free-flowing, energetic discussions without the constraints of a typical conference.

We’ll start the day by co-creating the agenda together. Then you can dive in and out of break-out sessions and high-energy discussions (led and facilitated by experienced global communication experts) on the topics that matter to YOU.

Comms Reboot is your opportunity to connect in-person with a diverse range of people from different organisations, and tap into the expertise and experience of others.

Your ticket also includes breakfast, lunch, and refreshments, and there will be drinks afterwards too!

What you can expect from the day:

If you’ve never been to an ‘unconference’ before, here are a few things you can expect from Comms Reboot:

  • You’ll get your specific issues and problems solved because you decide the agenda for the day.
  • You’ll be able to share your advice with others to help them overcome things you have done before.
  • You’ll learn from experts in the profession who are there to facilitate the conversations, but are also on hand to chat to all day.
  • You’ll have fun! It’s a high energy day with spaces for reflection and quiet.
  • You’ll make new friends in a safe, community-based environment.

We guarantee that you won’t be talked at all day, watching PowerPoint slides and listening to case studies. You’ll be as involved in the conversations as you’re comfortable, sat in circles or round tables to discuss the real things going on in your organisation to help each other mastermind solutions.
