WASHINGTON, March 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Some of the country's top communications and public affairs officers will speak at the 5th National Summit on Strategic Communications, May 8-9, 2014 at the Washington Plaza Hotel, in Washington, DC, near the White House. More than 100 leaders and CEOs from corporate, military and government communications, public relations and public affairs assemble to identify and discuss strategies which enhance engagement, and to share best practices to improve communication.

A complete agenda, faculty and registration information is available at www.strategicsummit.com. Discounts for early registration are available until March 27.

"The Annual Strategic Summit aims to create a deeper understanding of opportunities and solutions to complex challenges before us today," said Robert Grupp, Summit Director and chair of the non-profit Strategic Communications Leadership Initiative. "Although the context for work varies among the sectors represented, Summit delegates find much in common in challenges faced, strategies in play and channels being used. As a result, there is a great comradery among peers and professionals who attend."

"Research consistently shows that companies with higher levels of engagement earn a return many times higher than those still relying on traditional structures or that drift into command and control style. The military learned long ago that if you want to win, you have to engage the intelligence of everyone involved in the battle. This Strategic Summit explains how."
