FIR on Higher Education #28 – How to Build Your Thought Leadership by Conducting Interviews
Many academics think their sole role from an external communications point of view is to be the interviewee. There are also incredible opportunities to build thought leadership by being the interviewer, as McGill University Professor Karl Moore can attest to.
Professor Moore’s CEO Interview Series is disseminated across various external communications channels. But more importantly, these interviews are leveraged across the institution. Professor Moore has integrated the interviews into the classroom and alumni events. The interviews help Professor Moore in his research. And then the relationships that develop lead the CEO to ask Professor Moore about recruiting students at McGill.
Have a listen to episode 28 of FIR on Higher Education to hear just how Professor Moore does this, and his tips on how you can conduct interviews that connect to personal and institutional goals.
