Centre Stage – episode 1: the changing nature of Investor Relations

Introducing our brand new podcast series: Centre Stage.

Centre Stage aims to tackle the issues that business communicators face – from investor and brand communications, to ESG, to employee engagement.

In each episode, we will be joined by guest speakers from a range of industries to hear what they think works, how they solve problems and what they see as the latest trends.

In the first of Bladonmore’s Centre Stage podcasts, Ben Shore talks to John Smelt, head of corporate relations at Petropavlosk plc and a founder of the IR consultancy Scout Advisory, and formerly head of IR at Rio Tinto – one of the world’s largest mining companies. They discuss the pressures faced by modern IR practitioners, and what the best strategies are for ensuring the investor narrative is heard and understood by the market.

Tune in below – also available on Spotify and Apple and coming soon on Amazon podcasts.
