What is it like to work internationally?

Why is translation important?

What does effective internal communication look like within a FMCG (Fast Moving Consumer Goods) environment?

The latest episode of my Candid Comms podcast is out now and focuses on these topics and many more.

It features Laura Colantuono, Internal Communications & Employer Branding Manager, International, at The Kraft Heinz Company.

Laura Colantuono.

I thoroughly enjoyed talking about all things internal communication related with Laura and our conversation is out now. She’s had a fascinating career path including roles at Fendi, Unilever and Harrods and is proud to say #IChoseIC.

Regular readers of my blog will know the Institute of Internal Communication (IoIC) is currently running an #IChoseIC campaign to encourage conversations about IC careers. See their website for more information.

Our discussion covers:

  • Laura’s career path, including working in luxury
  • What it’s like to work internationally
  • The importance of translation and local considerations
  • What effective communication looks like in a FMCG (Fast Moving Consumer Goods) environment
  • Environmental and Social Governance (ESG) considerations
  • What it’s like to join a company during a pandemic
  • Reaching frontline workers

and much more.
