Welcome to Powell Tate Insights.
It’s an inescapable truth: we’re living in an era of disruption. We’re reimagining how we live and work, seeking to restore public health and confronting assaults on bedrock democratic principles, all while the climate crisis worsens. 
It’s never been more critical to bring openness, curiosity and resilience to how we engage with and make sense of change. 

At Powell Tate, this belief informs our work as communicators and public affairs practitioners, as we seek a deeper understanding of the world and partner with our clients on how to adapt and lead.
As you’ll see in this issue of Powell Tate Insights, we’re working to embrace the space between, to not look away from the challenges – whether in politics, policy, business or society – but to approach them with clear eyes, a focus on the possibilities – and bravery. To offer some inspiration and insights on the world today, we’ve developed Leading at the Intersections in 2022. It’s a report I hope you’ll explore. As always, reach out with any questions, feedback and ideas. 

-- Paul Massey, President, Powell Tate
In Powell Tate’s Leading at the Intersections in 2022 report, we share insights on key themes at the center of our public affairs work in 2022, as well as some of our best thinking from the past year on the social, policy and geopolitical forces at play in the U.S. and around the world.
Our objective: to combine this deeper understanding of the landscape that surrounds us with new sources of data, reliable human intelligence and our team’s political and policy acumen to accelerate public affairs and communications solutions that are convention-defying, inclusive, energizing and transformative.
Leading at the Intersections brings together perspectives across four key topic areas:
  • Leadership in a Time of Disruption
  • Pivoting for Purpose & Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) Impact
  • The Imperative for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
  • The Convergence of Geopolitics & Communications Strategy

Executives are becoming highly attuned to the rapidly changing geopolitical realm — and risks — associated with today’s global media environment, including the fluctuating tides of globalization, quick-rising claims of national security and the speed at which truthful and false information spreads.
On Media Genius, Michelle Giuda, EVP of Geopolitical Strategy & Risk, outlines four fundamentals that should inform how business leaders shape a modern communications operation and strategy that considers geopolitics and media security.

In a related guest post on the Arthur W. Page Society’s Page Turner blog, Michelle proposes three areas where Chief Communications Officers need to lead amid today’s geopolitical challenges. And she spoke with PRWeek about the need for companies to consider the interests and perceptions of stakeholders in their home country while sponsoring this year’s winter games in Beijing.
