About this Event:

How much risk is your organization willing to undertake? Your communications strategy and your message must be unassailable when your spokespeople attempt to carry forth that message to reporters, audiences, and policy makers. Your reputation and organizational goals, and perhaps your career, depend upon it. Join the conversation with our expert panelists as they examine:

- Methods for getting your communications, government relations, legal, and finance teams to play nice together;
- Ideas for getting your various staff functions to deliver a consistent message;
- Thoughts on establishing an organized onboarding effort for your communications staffers that can aid you in this endeavor;
- Concepts to help your communications leadership win a seat at the executive table.

This panel discussion is designed for senior communications, government relations, finance, and legal executives who have direct responsibility for counseling their C-suite leaders. Our panelists will discuss why your long-range business goals depend on a strong, strategic communications effort and a magnetic message; who in your organization stands to benefit from a more disciplined approach, and why; how to craft an approach that meets your specific needs; and ideas for raising your profile as a communicator within your company. We will also leave plenty of time for your questions to help ensure we cover the issues of greatest concern to you.
