San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) March 28, 2006
Gordon Rudow, CEO of Bonfire Communications will lead communications professionals in an interactive session at International Association of Business Communicators (IABC) Independent Communicator’s Roundtable at the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco on April 13, 2006. A meet-and-greet reception begins at 8:30 a.m. followed by Mr. Rudow at 9 a.m.
In this interactive session participants will work with the “Accelerated Communications Planning Map,” providing a valuable takeaway that can be applied to everyday communications planning challenges. Participants will identify audience concerns, distinguish client issues, map objectives and key strategies, and create key top-level themes and messaging for a communications campaign. Mr. Rudow offers that the methodology “will rigorously drive you toward choosing the appropriate solution and the right vehicles to deliver key internal communications.”
“It’s too often that companies think that another newsletter or e-mail from the CEO will create the kind of engagement needed to ensure the success of strategic initiatives. Whether it’s reinventing the supply chain, implementing a critical software or technology, or dealing with a complicated merger or acquisition, assuring that communications address the concerns of the audiences is critical to a successful implementation or engagement activity,” says Rudow.
