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.
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!
