Listen to a free podcast discussing all things comms

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.

FIR_49From discussing Brexit to PR crises, the Olympics and all things internal communication related, I thoroughly enjoyed it and I hope you find it useful.

FIR host Shel Holtz @shelholtz invited me to join the panel, which included metrics queen Katie Paine @queenofmetrics (cousin of an Olympics bronze medalist), and PR veteran Jen Phillips @jenzings.

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.

You can find FIR online via their website and on Twitter @FIRpodcast.

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.

You can listen in below and can listen back to previous episodes of FIR via the FIR website:
