Our Perspective

communicate disaster preparedness
Challenging the Next Generation to Communicate Preparedness
Introduction by Nora Jacobs, Hennes Communications
Creating crisis communications that resonate with a range of audiences has always been a challenge.  The advent of social media has made this task even more complex.  The way senior citizens get their information could not be more different than the way Gen Z or Generation Alpha get theirs. To remain relevant, crisis communicators need to keep in mind the new tools, platforms and techniques that will increase the likelihood the messages they create aren’t just sent, but are also received by the relevant audience.

senior executive briefing
How to Brief a Senior Executive
Briefing a senior executive is an art and adept White House staffers do it every day under the most stressful of circumstances. They’re masters of compressing the right information into the right amount of time, no matter how complex the topic or short the briefing. The skills needed to brief the chief executive in the Oval Office are directly applicable to briefing any executive in the C-suite.

3 Things People Who Are Good at Conversation Don’t Do, According to a Research Psychologist
How good are you at having a conversation? If you’re like most people, you may wonder about your own conversational skills. The truth is, being good at conversation is as much about what you don’t say as it is about what you do say.
Board and member communications
Three Strategies for Effective Communication Between Your Board and Members
Every board wants to feel like they understand the association’s members and their needs. But that’s not always easy, especially since every organization is composed of members with different viewpoints and backgrounds. 
Rotten Tomatoes
The Decomposition of Rotten Tomatoes
To filmmakers across the taste spectrum, Rotten Tomatoes is a scourge. Martin Scorsese says it reduces the director “to a content manufacturer and the viewer to an unadventurous consumer.” But insiders acknowledge that it has become a crucial arbiter. Publicists say their jobs revolve around the site. But despite Rotten Tomatoes’ reputed importance, it’s worth a reminder: Its math stinks. 
news reporter
How One Reporter Covers the US Open for Newspapers All Over the Country
Michael J. Lewis annually covers the U.S. Open, professional tennis’ fourth and final grand slam of the year. The Providence Journal sponsors his credential. Once among the throngs in Queens, New York, Lewis could also be writing on deadline for The Kansas City Star. Or The Cincinnati Enquirer. Or a small paper in Wisconsin that will only remember to pay him when snow hits the ground.
hurricane reporting
Why Reporters Go Into the Storm
Something I found interesting as I watched the local TV coverage of Hurricane Idalia from my living room in St. Petersburg, Florida, on Tuesday: There was a live report from a journalist for the local ABC affiliate standing on a beach near St. Pete. Despite a mandatory evacuation in that area — because of the warnings of storm surge — several people were seen walking in the sand. Surely some viewers might have been wondering: If it’s dangerous for residents and tourists to be on the beach, why are reporters on the beach?
fake news
How to Defuse Fake News
Can you spot fake news? Here are the headlines of three recent stories that received wide coverage: “Putin issues international arrest warrant for George Soros”; “A baby born in California was named heart eyes emoji”; “Criminal farts so loudly he gives away his hiding place”. Did you recognise that only one of these stories was true – the third one?
home security
Best Practices for Securing Your Home Network
You've heard of the FBI and CIA. How about the NSA? The National Security Agency (often referred to as No Such Agency) is a national-level intelligence agency of the United States Department of Defense, under the authority of the Director of National Intelligence (DNI). The NSA is responsible for global monitoring, collection, and processing of information and data for foreign and domestic intelligence and counterintelligence purposes, specializing in a discipline known as signals intelligence (SIGINT).  It's existence was officially revealed until 1975. No one knows more about cybersecurity than the NSA.
