Fake news. Increasing concerns around the use of personal data. Growing populism. Upheavals in government. Employee activism. Widespread disruption of industries and companies. Now more than ever, trust is an asset that institutions must cultivate.

The 2018 Edelman Trust Barometer delves into the shifting societal and economic forces that are challenging people’s belief in institutions, and identifies new opportunities for leaders to build trust with stakeholders. Canada’s profile is unique and offers some distinct opportunities to leverage and build on trust.

Webinar Highlights
