(3) What aspect of communications are you most passionate about?
Public affairs and stakeholder engagement.
(4) How does being a member of IABC help you as a communications
It gives me a best practice reference point and allows me to share preposterous ideas about the future of public relations with peers. The IABC award program is held in high esteem by my colleagues and therefore increases my credibility to have a peer referral point, and the international conferences give me energy and commitment to challenge the status quo.
