Lundquist Quarterly: ISSUE 1, 2021 (International Edition)

Who would have thought? Launching a print magazine in a digital world might have seemed foolhardy. Yet, it seems we hit a nerve.

In our fast-moving world, a broader understanding of the interconnections between themes as varied as sustainability, finance, business transformation, leadership, digital, and reporting (to name a few) is imperative. To make informed decisions or simply to keep up.

Our Magazine aspires to bring you this broader context. We want to make sure we are all tuned up and tuned in to the world of corporate communications. In this issue, we are exploring the concept of trust: how it is nurtured by the ability to communicate what matters while also unearthing the simple and persistent role that transparency has as one of the most basic drivers of trust. Insights include takeaways from Biden’s election campaign, what role AI will play in the future, and learning how energy company Terna communicates its business transformation.

So, sit back, grab a coffee, and enjoy reading our digital publication.

Or enjoy a selection of individual articles below.

Happy reading!
