Robert Swan OBE is the first man ever to walk to both the North and South Poles, and Time Magazine calls him one of the world's top 10 communicators. Swan will share his unique insights and lessons learned in an hour-long interactive session with Summit delegates. Swan has earned his place in history alongside great explorers and adventurers who have tested their physical and mental strength to the limit. He will entertain and inspire Summit attendees with dramatic tales of adventure, incredible hardship and skills for overcoming the odds to finally triumph

Now in its 5th year globally, the Summit on Strategic Communications is co-hosted by the University of Greenwich Business School and is sponsored by the London Guild of Public Relations Practitioners, Bell Helicopter, HSBC and Apostol. The Summit is organized by the non-profit Strategic Communications Leadership Initiative and ExL Events Inc. The venue is the historic Queen Anne Building on the University of Greenwich maritime campus at the Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich. Full event information is at http://www.strategicsummit.co.uk.

"The London Strategic Summit aims for deeper understanding of communications opportunities and solutions to the 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 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."
