Hundreds of communicators will gather in South Carolina this fall for the Southern Region Conference of the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC).

The IABC – South Carolina Chapter is hosting the Southern Region Conference at the Francis Marion hotel in historic Charleston, S.C., on September 26-28, 2012. The conference theme, “Real People Talk: Making Human Connections in a High-Tech World,” seeks to help communicators engage with their targeted audiences on a personal level.

More than 20 top-rated, highly experienced speakers from across North America will be coming to Charleston to present at the conference. Presentations will focus on leadership, branding, social media and strategic communications.

The opening keynote address by Tim McCleary, principal of The Involvement Practice based in Connecticut, will tackle the issue of change management. McCleary, who has also presented at the IABC World Conference, will help attendees answer the question, “What’s your ‘it’?”

The closing keynote is by Jennifer Wah, Accredited Business Communicator, a principal consultant at Forward Communication, Inc., in Alberta, Canada. The past president of the association’s accreditation committee, Wah has also presented at the IABC Leadership Institute. Her address, entitled “Pecha Kucha: Finding the Happily-ever-after in Life and Leadership,” will highlight a Japanese-styled presentation that provides information in a quick and engaging format.
