Keeping Tabs: How to Stay on Message and Eliminate Surprises
Thursday, February 23, 1-2 p.m. ET
As communications professionals operating within a state-wide organization, it can be easy to forget the need to stay consistent on all messaging through every region and all departments. How do you maintain message consistency, whether operating out of one office or several? How can you monitor what reporters and the general public are saying about your organization? What can you do to engage executives inside your organization for media coverage and analysis? And how do you stay proactive and keep an eye on potential messaging issues that may emerge down the road? Missouri Department of Transportation Communications Director Fay Fleming is here to walk us through this and more during this webinar.
Registration is available here.
