Speaking with one Voice
Jan 10 @ 12:15 pm – 1:00 pm

Speaking with One Voice . . .  a Panel Discussion.

This idea came about after a panel discussion was hosted at our annual conference.  The dialog was dynamic and audience participation terrific.

Many energy companies are under pressure.  The good news is that each of the sources of energy have a good story to tell.  How do you get that message out to policy makers, existing customers, and the general public?  It starts from within your four walls.  All of your team members should speak with the same voice.  All of your marketing materials need to be clear and concise.

Our panelists:

Nicky Kollie, ICPA Association – Importance of belonging to an Association and attending meetings.

Jen LeClerc, Consumer Focus – Review of your marketing materials

Jamie Densmore, Densmore Oil – Sharing the Owners Perspective
