What is the Importance of PR to People at C-suite Level?
While not always in the job description, public relations skills are critical to the success of any CEO. As the leader of an organisation, a CEO’s words, tone and actions carry significant weight. Their presence in public (which includes internal company gatherings and announcements), and how they handle public challenges, can significantly impact a company’s reputation and value.
And for CEOs, the reputation of their company is a critical indicator of how successful they are in their role – CEOs of companies dogged by scandal and poor communication will likely face greater difficulties with their board and investors than those whose company has a clear voice and message.
Financial Impact of Negative CEO Reputation
Any negative perceptions of senior officials at a company can significantly impact the confidence of markets, investors, consumers, staff and regulators. Poor public speaking and media performances, a lack of clarity in their communications plans, or an inability to spell out their vision for a company can alienate all of those important stakeholders.
CEOs, board members and senior officials speaking on behalf of a company must ensure their public appearances are polished and assured, with clear rationale underpinning the points they make, in order to build confidence among key audiences.
