Please share your thoughts: Is it ever appropriate to talk off the record?

By Gerard Braud

Should you ever talk off the record to a reporter? This is a question we are posing on the BraudCast YouTube Channel for corporate communications, public relations, and media relations professionals. We are asking you to weigh in this week on our social media pages with your expert advice.

Maybe you have made this decision in the past and can speak on your experiences. Maybe you avoided this situation and you can explain why you made that decision.  Maybe you know colleagues or senior level executives who have spoken “off the record.” Did it benefit them or harm their reputation and revenue? Your colleagues can benefit from your expert tips.

Please share your thoughts here on the blog and on our social media, and we may feature your answers in the follow up video later this week.
