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.

Welcome, brief introductions

Our Executive Director Carlos Fulcher and I just hosted a the closing session at the Denver ‘Taking it to the extreme’ conference – organised by the IABC Southern Region and chaired by long-time IABC leader Sherry Boyd and hosted by  Regional Chair Julie Ludwig.  Their team did an ace job bringing together 120+ communicators from across North America.

It was a fast-moving session – the group reflected on the insights, ideas and opportunities that had come up during the conference.

One of the outputs from the session was a shared reading / listening list – and it is a long one.

I think we can safely match it to the theme of the conference: taking it to the extreme.

If you have an article, book or podcast to add – please post it in the comments – or tweet me @michaelambjorn and I’ll share in a future post.

Either way, enjoy!
