    On Background

    On Background

    From the title of this episode, you might think we were talking about company sources going on background when speaking to a reporter. (Quick advice: Don't. Either be on the record or don't talk to a journalist.) But that's not what this episode is about. Instead, we're talking about Zoom backgrounds (or Teams, or Skype, or Webex, or Google Meet, or whatever). With flexible work the order of the day in many organizations, is it time to give serious consideration to what people see behind you in a call? There's a book (that's right, an entire book) on the subject. We cover it in 15 minutes.

My not-so-secret tool for staying current with social media

I have been a listener since around Episode 100 (they’re now approaching show 800) and I can tell you it’s my must-listen-to podcast every week. I have used their insights in so many ways and can count on Shel and Neville to bring the absolute latest news and trends regarding PR and social media. I highly recommend FIR and the other shows in the FIR Network.
