Welcome to the Future Leaders Network

It is widely agreed that some of the most innovative and exciting ideas come from emerging markets and moreover, the next generation of leaders. The IIC gives up and coming commissioners, deputy commissioners, in-house junior counsel from industry and rising stars in policy and international relations teams a forum in which they can build a network of strategic and influential international relationships.

Who are we?

The International Institute of Communications is an independent, global organisation that brings together senior policy makers from across the emerging digital ecosystem to explore and discuss the opportunities and challenges that the new environments bring.

Indeed, across the industry we work in, the rapid pace of technological change and the concurrent emergence of new user behaviours mean that policy makers face ever-evolving challenges to permit innovation, offer protection to all stakeholders (users and industry alike) and respond to political and governmental needs.

The strength and value of the IIC is to offer the opportunity to learn and share information, in an atmosphere of collaboration. This is through access, among other factors, to the IIC’s journal: Intermedia, the website, social media presence, global and regional events – all contributing to a matrix of information-sharing, relationships and influence.
