Start your year by investing in learning

This column is dedicated to learning and to invite you to invest time and money. Last month I came across Kiki Keating and her partner Matt Symonds and their world-class conference, one edition of which will take place in India in January. The Promise Foundation along with the School of Communication & Reputation (SCoRe) is proud to announce a partnership with MaKiNetwork for the internationally renowned MaKi Business Media Conference, a two-day conference to be held in Mumbai on Wednesday 23 and Thursday 24 January, 2019.

Since 2005, the MaKiNetwork has connected the world’s leading media with a select audience of communications professionals. Across North America, Europe, Asia and Africa the MaKi Business Media Conferences bring together local and international journalists to share their work and editorial needs and discuss how we can help to source the right people and ideas for their coverage.

The Mumbai Conference, to held at the Royal Bombay Yacht Club, is an exceptional opportunity to meet face to face with editors, bureau chiefs, reporters and correspondents from The Financial Times, Wall Street Journal, The Economist, Bloomberg, BBC, Forbes, CNBC, Business Insider, Reuters, The Times of India, Financial Express, NDTV, DNA India, Hindustan Times, Business Standard, India Today and more.

MaKi Network is reserving a limited number of places for local communications professionals to join peers from the US, Canada, UK, France, Spain, Australia and China for two days of media and best practices. We have negotiated a special price for Indian delegates, which is 50% less than the regular price and now is available at $750 as we have found a local sponsor to compensate. You may contact Kiki Keating at for more details.

It’s a fantastic opportunity to meet some senior journalists and learn form them in Mumbai and also to network with business school PR professionals from around the world, who are the primary audience for this conference.

I will be attending and also speaking on The Future of Public Relations on the first day. I hope you will be able to avail this deal, valid till the end of December and make the most of it.

I found the promoters of this conference an interesting team. Kiki Keating and Matt Symonds run the MaKi Network and they together organise leading international media conferences in Europe, Asia, the GCC and Latin America between the media, business schools and universities.

Their industry experience and passion for people means that they have great connections with all of the top business schools worldwide and therefore help global media to source the right people and ideas for their coverage. But for me personally, this will be a great place to learn and connect with the communication directors of some of the world’s leading business schools. This may lead to an enhancement of knowledge and scope for more research into our chosen profession at a later date.

What are you waiting for? Sign up today and grab an opportunity of a lifetime.
