The Digital Campus convenes university communicators, marketers, and others interested in leveraging new technologies to increase the visibility of their higher education institution.

During this 6th annual event, we will cover issues of specific concern to Swiss university communicators with a focus on Science Storytelling.

We are very pleased to bring Liz Neeley, the Executive Director of the Story Collider, to Switzerland this October.
In her role, she focuses on true, personal stories of science, blending the best ideas from the arts with the strongest research on communication.

Over the past ten years, Liz has specialized in environmental science, journalism, and social media. In her workshops, coaching, speaking, and writing, she is always searching for the best ways of spreading ideas through influential networks. She is a member of the Advisory Board to the CommsLab at MIT.
