Spotlight | What is an Impact Council?

The Global Impact Relations Network is proud to announce the launch of our next series of virtual meetups, called Impact Councils

But, what exactly is an Impact Council

These one-hour facilitated conversations or presentations will feature inspiring communicators, from agencies or brands, discussing important trends and best practices that are critical for authentic and impactful communications. 

The content of each Impact Council will depend on; 

  1. The issues happening in the world around us, to ensure the sessions reflect the consultation and advocacy needed for communicating about timely and relevant issues
  2. The interests of the community, to ensure we produce educational and engaging content that reflects the interests of our community. We’ll regularly ask our community what topics are of most interest and gauge the level of understanding of Impact Relations best practices and applications so we can tailor content accordingly.
  3. Voluntary nominations, to provide a platform for members of our community to inform and inspire other members. We’ll put ‘call outs’ to see if there are any members that would like to share knowledge about impactful communications in practice.

Going forward, you can expect one Impact Council from the Global Impact Relations Network each month. 

Don’t miss our first Impact Council, hosted by leaders from Porter Novelli, this Wednesday, January 13 at 1pm ET/ 10am PT. The session will examine 2020 communications trends and predictions for 2021. RSVP at to secure your free spot.
