Solution provider webinar: How to Use Video To Enhance Executive Communication

One of the biggest differences between high performing organizations and those that consistently fail to reach performance goals involves executive communication. All too often members of the C-suite hide behind others to convey their vision for the company. While they may think it is more efficient to communicate indirectly, they are doing little to endear themselves to their employees.

Streaming video allows executives to engage in interactive live communicate with all employees no matter where they are located. It is for this reason that many corporate communications departments are choosing to host All-Hands and Town Hall meetings with this technology.

In this webinar, we will discuss:

  • The benefits of using video for executive messaging.
  • How to prep your executives to communicate with video.
  • Tips for selecting a video platform for executive communication.

What’s A FLY Lunch?

A chance to get out of the office, have lunch (and dessert) and meet fellow communicators in your area – Folks Like You (FLY). These informal, small-group lunches allow practitioners to share ideas, gain insight into and find solutions to our common communications challenges.

FLY lunches are open to both IABC members and non-members – just pay for your own lunch. This is a great opportunity to explore IABC or bring along a friend or co-worker who is considering IABC membership and wants to experience firsthand how our professional networking and idea sharing works.

If this FLY lunch is not in your work neighborhood, please stay tuned. IABC members are hosting FLY breakfast or lunch events each month in a variety of areas and neighborhoods. Check the IABC Boston calendar and join us for one near you.
