We did the second IABC Leadership Forum on the road: Carlos and I broadcast from the stage at the Heritage Region Conference in Baltimore and Dianne checked in from Charlotte, fresh back from the Canada West conference in Calgary – and Melissa helped with the Q&A from San Francisco.

You can watch the replay here:

It was a great session, but don’t just take my word for it:

Quick overview of the topics covered

All of the following was interspersed with Q&A – see a run-down of the questions at the end – and the Leadership Forum is all about creating connection between leaders, hence all the people are hyperlinked in case you want to follow up.

Recently I had the privilege of chairing an event on behalf of IABC UK, kindly hosted by top comms headhunting firm VMA.

I’ve been reading the follow-on blog posts and I particularly like the nice visually-amplified summary from Gay Flashman. I would add just one more column (which Gay covers in the main text): the Global Standard. It adds the professional process that helps practitioners make sense of the other two.

Read her full post here.

Meanwhile I commend the panel to you – big thanks to them for sharing their experience and insights from across the globe:

Last but not least thanks to Kirsty Brown and Casilda Malagon for organising and inviting. And with that, let’s close out with some practical advice from the UK Chapter President – hear hear!:

Topical to that, do check out the notes from the inaugural IABC Leadership Forum – and look out for the invite to the October edition.

Let’s #createconnection – like never before.

P.S. You might ask why the Global Standards are not at the centre of the intersect in the Venn: discuss.
