S5E6: From Ideas to Impact, “How to collaborate on a piece of communication without playing red pen ping-pong”

We continue season 5 - "From Ideas to Impact" - where Richard Medcalf (Founder of Xquadrant) speaks with Davina Stanley of the Clarity First Program, to explore specific strategies that will help us communicate complex ideas better.

Davina Stanley helps leaders communicate complex ideas. Having started her communication career at McKinsey, she now leads a team of seven structured thinking experts who serve professionals of all kinds who need to communicate with greater impact. Her clients range from smart Australian boutiques to Fortune 500 companies.

Today we talk about how to work well together when preparing a piece of communication, internally or to investors or customers.

In this conversation, you’ll learn:

  • How to stop the discussion wandering off topic
  • How to push everyone to think hard and distil a powerful message
  • How to encourage participants to say what they really think

"If you want a powerful story, you have to take risks and have a point of view and yet it is tempting to play safe and not rock the boat."
