Keynotes

Whether a Main Stage keynote speech from a thought leader, a panel discussion with experts, best cases and presentations that bring you cutting edge PR, or fishbowl sessions that bring the audience together, you’ll find a variety of learning experiences at GCS. But remember: it’s your voice that counts, so question, debate and dive in to our programme.

Workshops

From crisis scenario training to issue management bootcamp, our workshops are the perfect way to  deep dive into a specific communications and PR discipline. Whether you want to compare your capabilities with peers or learn something new.

Innovation Expeditions

Our exciting offsite-programme includes innovation expeditions to co-working spaces, innovation hubs, newsrooms, start-ups and many more hotspots in Berlin! Join the tour, visit innovative and creative spaces and learn from speakers in their own setting as they walk you through their spaces and explain their concept.

Capacity for the tours are limited to 25 pax. Be sure to register online to secure your spot! Registration for the tours will be available starting from 01.05.20.

After Party

We’re not saying that our evening party is the single best reason to come to the GCS, but we’re not not saying it. At the end of the Summit’s first day, our colourful after party is the ideal excuse to let your hair down, unwind, dance and make new friends in the heart of Berlin. A special evening performance will kick off the festivities in style.
