The Sudden Silence of Business Leaders; 2023 Comms Predictions

Business leaders have historically played a significant role in using their platform and influence to speak out on pressing issues such as social justice, equality, and sustainability. However, in recent months, companies and organizations that had previously pledged to “create more inclusive cultures” have recently provided a “no comment” when asked to speak on hot-button issues. Why are leaders communicating less during heightened moments of crisis? The podcast breaks down why “authenticity” is paramount when corporate executives engage in civil discourse. 

The show wraps as the panel provide their communications-focused predictions for 2023 – propaganda, tech companies going bankrupt, the metaverse, and why TikTok will ultimately be banned in the U.S. according to Austin: “If you don’t think China is using ByteDance to spy on you, you’re completely misguided.” 

Editor’s Note: Season five is here! The podcast ushers in a new era with the addition of Kim Davis as a co-host – and we couldn’t be more excited.
