IABC’s Fellows welcomed members of the 2023 class during the World Conference in Toronto. Now, you will have the chance to meet these two dynamic communicators in a special episode of Circle of Fellows. Join host Shel Holtz, SCMP, ABC, and Neil Griffiths, chair of this year’s Fellows Committee, for a conversation about our new Fellows’ careers and their views on a wide-ranging array of communication-related topics. As always, you will be able to participate in the conversation by asking questions and sharing observations using YouTube’s live chat feature. If you aren’t able to join us for the live stream, you will be able to watch the video replay or listen to the audio podcast.
The conversation begins at noon EDT on Thursday, June 22.
