The article entitled Communications Strategists Deliberated on 60 Million in Cuts at Environment Canada, talks about how communicators were invited to attend a c-suite and major business meeting in order to be better prepared.
First Kristine and Julia talk about the positives of having communicators in these meetings. They also discuss how young communicators can work their way in to these meetings.
Then, Kristine reacts to the negative stereotypes of the industry and gives her rebuttal to how some believe that communicators are simple there to communicate the decision and have no place in contributing to the business decisions.
We want to hear from you. Where do you stand? Should communicators be included in c-suite level meetings? And what are your suggestions to helping young professionals get in to those meetings too?
