Tonight I joined three professional communicators in the US to record the latest For Immediate Release (FIR) podcast. It’s hot off the press and ready for your listening pleasure.
I found it interesting to hear Katie and Jen’s views and mull over some recent articles and research from our respective sides of the pond.
I listen to the FIR podcast regularly. They’re approximately 90 minutes long and well worth tuning in to, particularly if you have a global comms role and want to know what’s important for comms pros around the globe.
Our conversations covered…
- The crisis management (or lack thereof) from Ryan Lochte, Olympic gold medalist and gas station restroom vandal
- The less well-known crisis the St. Paul School in New Hampshire is experiencing following media coverage of a lawsuit the school filed demanding that an underage sexual assault victim disclose her name
- A survey revealing the internal communications challenges facing U.K. companies following the Brexit decision
- Whether PR agencies need to revisit their billing practices to focus on charging for winning rather than the hours they have put in for a client
- A study that reveals frontline employees believe they have a lot of ideas for improving the business but that few companies are listening
- A rule effective January 1 that will require public companies in the U.S. to disclose their CEO-to-worker pay ratios
- Dan York reports on the latest WordPress upgrade, changes Twitter has made to its notifications, and major websites (like Facebook) now seeing more than half their traffic come over IPv6.
