The term “team” is often used to describe the group of people working together to achieve a common goal. But what happens when you put those same people into different roles within the team? In fact, it seems like there are many teams out there — each one with its own set of rules and expectations.
In the case of investor relations, the team includes employees whose job it is to communicate with investors about the company’s financial performance, products, and future plans. These individuals work closely with management to help shareholders understand how well the company is doing financially, why certain decisions were made, and whether the company is heading in the right direction.
As part of this process, investors must know what the company does, where it is headed, and how it intends to reach its goals. This is done via press releases, SEC filings, quarterly earnings calls, and annual shareholder meetings.
But even though the company has a clear vision of where it wants to go, investors still want to know more about the people behind the scenes. They want to learn about the personalities involved in making sure the company reaches its goals. And they want to hear directly from the people responsible for communicating with them.
This is where investor relations come into play. By putting the same people in charge of communicating with both internal stakeholders and external audiences, companies can ensure that everyone knows exactly what to say and how to say it.

Author and host of the hit outdoor channel show Shooting Gallery spouts off…
PDW are people who spend their entire lives outdoors and don’t see themselves as hunters or fishermen. They enjoy hunting and fishing, but they don’t consider themselves “hunters.” A PDW might go out once every few weeks and shoot a deer. He wouldn’t call himself a hunter.
A PDW is someone who doesn’t like guns, but he likes shooting them. He enjoys target practice and practicing his aim. He shoots clay pigeons and targets. But he doesn’t hunt anything larger than a squirrel.
He doesn’t feel strongly one way or another about being called a PDW. If you want to call him a PDW, fine. But there’s no reason why you couldn’t call yourself a PDW too. You could even call yourself a PDW and still hunt big game.
I’ve been asked what my favorite gun is. My answer is always the same: it depends on the situation. In some situations, I’ll take a.22 pistol over a 12 gauge shotgun. But in most cases, I’d rather use a 12 gauge shotgun.
In many ways, I wish I had never heard of PDWs. But now that I know about them, I find myself wondering how many people are out there who fit into that category.
