Why IR Café?

Inspired by some folks at the National Investor Relations Institute annual conference this week, I’m taking a few steps into Web 2.0.

Why start a blog now? And why call it IR Café?

… Because after 30-plus years as a communicator with a passion for financial markets and information, I have a few ideas to share.

… Because IR matters to shareholders, executives and employees.

… Because anyone engaged in the adventure of telling a company’s story knows that investor relations is hard work. It demands constant learning and attention to detail. The high-energy staff role can get frustrating or lonely at times, even in the nerve center of a company.

So inviting colleagues into a café to join a conversation and sip a little caffeine for the mind should be fun. I hope you enjoy it with me.
