Why did you join the Company of Communicators?

Mita Dhullipala: I joined the Company of Communicators in order to be a part of something better than myself, working with like-minded members from my profession, to make a tangible impact of society more widely.

What benefits have you derived from joining?

Mita Dhullipala: I have found the networking opportunities really helpful and I enjoy learning from the other members of the company, as there is such a wealth of lived experience.

What are the main challenges you are experiencing in communications today?

Mita Dhullipala: As the pandemic forces entire populations to reflect on their attitudes, beliefs and perceptions, it is no small wonder that people are acutely sensitised to hearing the stories of those most like them. A collective anxiety has gripped us all, allowing us to relate to others with an empathy previously numbed by the digital age. If ever campaigning was about winning hearts and minds – it is now. As a policy, public affairs and comms professional, one of the biggest challenges I foresee is how ensure that telling human stories remains at the heart of our work.
