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:
‘Love this! Am going to encourage our whole board to join.’ – Mary Foshage, VP Marketing IABC St. Louis
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.
The core team (above) + special guest Camille Downing who joined to share an update from the Heritage Region conference which gathered a strong contingent of communicators from across the East Coast of the US – and even a couple of Canadians.
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.
Meanwhile I commend the panel to you – big thanks to them for sharing their experience and insights from across the globe:

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.
