Greetings… and the beginning of our introductions

Greetings and welcome. Please allow me to begin with a few introductions: first, the individual whose comment comprises the title of this blog, Arthur W. Page. Arthur Page was a vice president and director of AT&T in the 1930’s and 40’s, in charge of what we would today call communications and public relations. I won’t replicate here what you can read in the link, but in the course of his writing, Page established a series of public relations heuristics (or “instructions” or “laws”, if you’d like), now generally referred to as the Page Principles.

Want to achieve top- notch public relations or communications performance? It’s relatively straightforward: keep the few Page Principles squarely in mind; then figure out how to implement them rigorously in a multi-faceted commercial, government or non-profit institution employing up to hundreds of thousands of employees serving up to tens of millions of customers or constituents. (I said “straightforward” didn’t I, not necessarily “easy”)
