Speaker: Gary Ross, Strategic Communications Consultant
Gary Ross
Strategic Communications Consultant
Change happens all the time, but somehow, we never seem to get used to it. It can bring anxiety and confusion that can easily derail productivity at your agency. During these times of organizational change, communicators have a critical role to play. A successful change management strategy can help reduce distractions and uncertainty in your office and can also help you understand what’s going on, focus on your job and maintain the workflow critical to your agency’s success.
Please join the Partnership for Public Service and the Federal Communicators Network on Tuesday, May 16 for a session on change management. Gary Ross, a strategic communications consultant who has helped lead large and small organizations through major change, will explore how communications leaders can best support your agency through times of significant change.
The event is free to attend, but space is limited, so RSVP today.

However, it may not be clear to you the taxonomy and makeup of these crews.
