This is My pet theory. We all have one, this is Mine.
Any group or person that is responsible for planning events, meetings, and the like needs to be communicating well with their potential audience. Breakdowns of communication are all too common, but often are the result of not following the 3 Rule of Good Communication:
- Accuracy of content
- Redundancy of distribution
- Timeliness of the whole shebang

Let’s take a look at each of these in detail, using confrence/meeting announcements as examples.
