Communication Tools for Your Comms Strategy - 6.8



We're no strangers when it comes to talking about comms strategy. For this episode, our Podcast Producer stumbled upon a book that dove into the discussion of communication tools. Luckily, the author was more than happy to share his wisdom.





In this week's episode, we're talking with Award-Winning Author, Speaker, and Advisor Phil Simons on his latest book "Reimagining Collaboration: Slack, Microsoft Teams, Zoom, and the Post-COVID World of Work." While the topic of comms strategy might seem like nothing new, Phil discusses how you can make it even better by properly using your communication tools to their full value.
