  • Oficio 129 Newbury Street 2nd Floor Boston, MA 02116

Highly regulated industry? Here's how to tell your story (and keep your job.)

It's not easy for communicators working in highly regulated environments --financial, biotech, pharma, healthcare-- with serious restrictions on what companies can say. How to serve the compliance gods while engaging stakeholders in a social, always on world? You can do more than you (and your legal team) think, with smart guidelines, practices, pilots and tools.

Join the New England Chapter and the Boston Chapter of the International Association of Business Communication for this in-person professional development session, in which you'll learn how to tell your story and stay safe with regulators. Our panel of communications pros will share guidance, tips and real world examples. What do you want to solve in 2018? Bring your questions. Then stick around for networking, appetizers and drinks.

The panel will be moderated by Christine Courard, Boston IABC President and Director of Communications at Raytheon.
