The Presenters

Ned began the JOTW network several years ago when he was looking for work and wanted to share opportunities with others.

Today the JOTW network has grown to more than 5,800 subscribers who receive his free newsletter every Monday.

For the third consecutive year, Ned has partnered on the survey with Frank, founder and president of Sword and the Script Media, LLC, to ask the questions nobody was asking.

Since 2019, participation has nearly doubled, yielding key insights on the issues, trends and best practices in communication faced by professionals from around the world.

The webinar was presented by the IABC Heritage Region in collaboration with the IABC DC Metro and Philadelphia chapters. The producer is Steve Lubetkin, IABC Philadelphia chapter member and managing partner of The Lubetkin Media Companies.

This session updated us on attitudes in an industry that was already facing multiple challenges even before the global pandemic began this year. Survey results over the past three years provide much more than industry trends. Some of the findings are especially timely, while others are timeless in dealing with universal communication challenges.
