What are the upcoming issues and themes in science communication?

The recent ASC conference had many people asking how can we increase our effectiveness? And what can we do to have more positive outcomes? Sometimes we need to drive our professional development in a new direction to break out of the tried but no longer true way of doing things.

What new issues, themes, skills, techniques, etc, do you think have the potential to improve the outcomes of our work?
