ProTalk with Jack Martin: The Next COVID-19 Challenge – Returning to the Workplace

September 28 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

PRO TALK with Jack Martin

How can you prepare for a successful return to the workplace, and what does that return look like? What does “success” look like and to who? What else should communication pros focus on during conversations with employees and teams about a potential return to the office?

Presented by IABC Seattle, Jack Martin, Interim Associate Vice President for Communications for the University of Washington, on Tuesday, Sept. 28, 5:30-6:30 p.m. PT, shares his insights on:

  • Best practices from a college campus about communicating about the return to the workplace
  • Whether to mandate the vaccine and how to keep everyone safe – and feeling safe
  • How to connect with audiences exhausted from a year and a half of constant change
  • How communications can be a forcing function for some of the tough questions many of us still need to answer, such as how we’ll navigate the rise of the Delta variant

IABC Seattle ProTalks are informative, interview-style conversations. Questions are welcome and we try to get to as many as possible.

This is a free, virtual event, but reservations are required. No matter where you are in the world, we hope you will attend!
