Delivering Effects through Influence Activity

Key questions facing the Influence Community:

  • What role should the information operations community play in combatting the influence of extremist groups?
  • How has the growth of social media and technology influenced Information Operations?
  • How can we create a cohesive, overarching strategic narrative that can be used to derive positive “stories” for multiple audiences?
  • What role should Information Operations play in contingency planning and conflict prevention?

The questions above come from extensive market research with you, the Influence Community, and will be directly addressed at Information Operations Global 2012 through targeted presentations, and dedicated and serious interactive debate.

Why Information Operations Global is your must-attend event!

  • Examine how contractors are offering their commercial know-how and enabling military to carry out the full reach of influence activity through community outreach, target audience analysis, human terrain mapping and beyond
  • Look towards the potential problems of privatising the message and leaving crucial influence functions in non-military hands
  • Step outside of the military realm and draw from the experiences of campaign managers from the worlds of politics and social marketing
  • Bring together the global influence community for a world class opportunity to network, benchmark and learn from one another’s experience

What others are saying about Information Operations Global

The Conference was outstanding! Most of the topics were relevant to my job and the speakers were world class. The combination of speakers and the ability to meet and "network" with our international partners allowed me to gain months worth of knowledge and experience in just 4 days.
Scott Wetzel, USAF
Very well qualified panel of speakers. Good diversity. Goodmix of military & civilian/Contractor speakers. Value added. Benefit in networking & in listening to each of the speakers.
Lieutenant Colonel Dieter Jobe, Threat Analysis Division Head, United States Marine Corps Information Operations Center
It was well balanced. This conference is always valuable as it is a unique forum in which to learn how IO is doing and where we are heading.
Deputy Director, PsyOps, Canadian Forces
Must attend event for IO practitioners to stay abreast, learn new and share own knowledge/application. I have 13 years of US Army experience, multiple combat tours and have written extensively on IO but I was very satisfied with what I learned. Even experienced IO practitioners need to refresh their skills and knowledge.
Norman Emery
Good networking opportunity, interesting viewpoints.
Martijn van der Meijs, Joint Warfare Centre, Stavenger, NATO
