Social Acceptance


The 10th European Communication Summit will focus on the purpose and societal context of business.

The licence to operate is the unwritten contract between society and business: a go-ahead given by society to companies and their operations. Aligning corporate culture with business is essential to interact authentically with stakeholders, create further value and ensure that business secures sufficient social legitimacy.

How can communications be part of this process and contribute to building an authentic, trustworthy and accountable organisation, fit for purpose and worthy of the social licence to operate?

Join us on July 7/8 in Brussels to discuss these questions and support your business in ensuring its own licence to operate.

The 10th Conference

The 10th European Communication Summit will focus on businesses' licence to operate. The on-going debate about the role of business in society makes it all the more important for companies to achieve social acceptance and legitimacy, ensuring their future ability to operate. To this end, engaging with the perceptions of stakeholders and the wider community is just the first step for communicators.
