2014 Academic Summit

About the Academic Summit

At the 2014 Academic Summit, Edelman hosted deans and professors from 74 universities around the world to learn from our clients, from media and digital thought leaders and from our own senior managers about “Storytelling @ the Speed of Now.”

In doing so, Edelman armed attendees with case studies, insights and practical knowledge that can be immediately incorporated in to their course curricula, along with a greater understanding of the new skills students need in order to pursue a successful communications career. Co-hosted with DePaul University, the University of Notre Dame and media partner PRWeek at DePaul’s loop campus in Chicago June 25-27, the Summit featured 54 speakers represented organizations ranging from GE, Starbucks, HP, Wrigley and Activation to Forbes, LinkedIn, Storyful, Quartz, UNICEF and The New York Times.
