The OCC is responsible for communicating, protecting and maintaining the institute’s corporate image, identity and branding which is crucial to the relationship-building process with our international scientific colleagues, collaborators, governments, employees, suppliers and contractors, and the general public. To this end, the OCC manages and executes the external and internal communication channels that flow through the institute, such as the corporate website, intranet, corporate brochure and other corporate paraphernalia. As the GIS logo is our most valuable visual asset and brand identity, we oversee its proper use and deployment.
The OCC manages and maintains good relations with the media. We write and publish press releases, and handle media conferences and media interviews to garner record positive media mentions. We organise, manage and handle all of the institute’s corporate and ministerial visitors, both local and overseas.
