    Dear Colleagues,

    Coming off a banner year celebrating the 10th anniversary of the PR Summit, ExL has worked closely with our tenured advisory board to once again revamp our program focusing on new formats, new content and new speakers. This fresh approach is going to provide you with the opportunity to network with industry colleagues while learning new tips, tricks and strategies.

    It is a unique time for communicators in our industry. The issues and challenges we encountered 10 years ago differ substantially from those we face today, and there is constant change. Communicators are being tasked to deal with these changes and many other challenges. To keep pace with rapid change in science, technology, policy, organizational structure and more, communicators need to bring new approaches and, in some cases, hit the reset button.

    Bringing together our most senior group of industry speakers ever and more than 150 of the industrys finest communications and public affairs executives, the 11th Annual Public Relations & Communications Summit is THE place to be this coming July. On behalf of Sanofi and our advisory board, we look forward to welcoming you to Bridgewater, NJ for a few days of strategic thinking, debates, learning opportunities, and a rare chance to catch up with old colleagues.
