AMO Insight – Corporate Communications in an environment of shifting sands.
In these extraordinary times, the corporate world is being turned upside down by issues like AI, ESG and a fervent debate over corporate purpose in society. If that was not enough, politics in many of the G20 economies have become unpredictable, and so, as a consequence, has the path the global economy will take, at least in the medium-term.
This unpredictability has affected corporate deal-making and investments with US and Hong Kong M&A deal volume and IPOs down in 2019, investment into Spain and the UK were in free-fall to name just but a few casualties.

In this paper, AMO has gathered insights about managing corporate communications in uncertain times from some of our member agencies around the globe.
