In this week's episode of the Dear BAMf podcast, we speak with Kaitlin Durkosh, Director of Communications at Greylock Partners. Before joining Greylock, Kaitlin lead communications for Uber's consumer experience and the company's new mobility businesses. Kaitlin strategizes on tempering a CEO who wants to be front and center, recognizing patterns in your organization, and the advantage of documenting everything. Facts and data are always better than opinions.
As a PR person, I'm used to staffing interview questions with clients to listen in and take notes. I'm wondering what I should do if something comes up in an interview that I know is a question my client cannot answer or if they're struggling. At what point and in what way should I chime in, if at all. Will that sour my relationship with the reporter? How do I navigate these tricky situations?
Listen now to hear how Kaitlin advises this writer to move forward.
