Spanning 40 countries, The Leaders’ Report explores how communication is currently being under-utilised within government. And, outlines key challenges faced by government communicators around the world in effectively supporting policy delivery, including:

  • Declining levels of trust and active drivers of disconnection with citizens
  • Fractured audiences and lack of capability to personalise messaging
  • Dominance of one-way conversations as less than a third see citizen engagement as a priority
  • Lack in investment in capability leaving half of participants without the right tools and resources to do their job
  • Insufficient use of communications as an essential part of policy development

Join the Report’s author, Sean Larkins (former Deputy Director of Communications for UK Government), and The Practice’s AUNZ Executive Director Kathryn Cooper, for a session on key findings, including Top 10 attributes of high performing government communication organisations, and recommended actions to prepare communication functions for the future.
