Writing Boots reader and frequent commenter Rueben Bronee* and Robin Farr, his colleague in an employee communication department, say they are starting an employee communication "revolution"—their word—in their organization.
They state their intentions on their brand new blogs.
They credit me for inspiring them with my speech of last week, but whatever gains they achieve from here on out—and I will chronicle their efforts on Writing Boots, as I promised them I would—are all on them.
Best of luck to you both. This will be interesting.
* Yes, Boots regulars, you heard me right. Rueben Bronee, no longer content to opine only from his bar stool here, has opened a tavern of his own. Comparatively, it's a clean, well-lighted place—and I'm adding it to the list of blogs I always read ….
Thanks, David, for outing us. I guess that pretty much blows any hope we could just kind of fly under the radar with this stuff until we had something to show for it. Full disclosure: Robin is the true revolutionary around here. I may be her boss, but on this I am proud to say I can’t claim to be the leader.
And thanks for plugging the blog. I’m glad I didn’t publish the post I was working on yesterday about how introducing social media in communications is like potty training my two year old. Maybe not the best introduction for new readers…
David Murray says
Storm the Bastille!
For months now, my husband has been waving me off to work with this little exchange: (he’s very good at playing both parts)
“Have fun storming the castle!”
“Think it’ll work?”
“It would take a miracle.”
Luckily we’re up for the challenge.
And don’t let Rueben fool you – he’s pretty revolutionary himself. But more importantly, at least for me, his support means this little endeavour hopefully won’t get me fired.
