The other side of the coin

Some of my experiences with such press briefings tell me that many times the reporters or editors who attend such briefings are not much interested in hearing what is being said by the company representative, or what product is being demonstrated.

Many times they will be just happy to collect whatever Press release the company has prepared and will be eager to finish the evening with a sumptuous dinner as a reward for their time spent.

My favorite types of meetings are those where we can get beyond content and into strategy. Many organizations don't prepare their folks for this type of organization. I love the times though when we can get beyond what is in the press release or on the corporate agenda and get to what the announcement demonstrates about trends in the industry, technological implications and the rest. That's when it gets interesting and exciting for me.
