By Caroline Kealey

Recently, I was honoured to have the opportunity to deliver a session at the IABC Canada 2012 Business Communicators Summit on the top 10 questions in strategic communications. As is always the case when you have a room full of smart, innovative communicators, the discussions were animated, the participation eager and the shared experiences invaluable.

The workshop was all about being prepared, being strategic and saving your sanity in managing client relationships. I shared my Top 10 Questions that every communicator needs to have in their back pocket — the questions that help you show off the fundamental value we contribute:

Lessons from Project Glass: Why embracing technology is not optional

By Megan Totka

Devices like smartphones and tablets have become such a part of everyday life that they’re almost an extension of our bodies. As technology progresses, so does the ease of use. The capabilities of personal electronics today would have been the stuff of science fiction only a decade ago. It stands to reason that the emerging technology of contemporary times will be fodder for pop culture jokes a decade from now.

While all of this rapidly-evolving technology serves entertainment and convenience purposes, it has also revolutionized the way that businesses reach customers. If you have a website, social media accounts or a mobile app attached to your company, you are already very aware of the power that instant technology has in the marketplace. Just when you think you know all there is to know about cutting-edge customer experiences through technology, something new emerges.

November roundup: What does it take to bring technology to market?

By Alexandra Reid

This month saw a lot of action in the Canadian startup scene and we covered much of it here on our blog. Most notably, Startup Canada launched its much anticipated Startup Blueprints, an ambitious web platform that summarizes what the organisation heard this past summer, and sets out what needs to be done to turn those ideas and reflections into concrete action.

But that shouldn’t eclipse the wonderful work of Maple Leaf Angels and CanWit, two organisations that have fostered a partnership to create new investment opportunities for women-led startups in Canada. The National Angel Capital Organization also held its annual conference in Halifax, where important debates took place about the value of crowdfunding and how investment in this country could be improved.

Of course, those stories don’t even scratch the surface of our coverage this month. In case you missed any, here’s a handy roundup of our posts, ranked by the enthusiasm of our readers.
