Podcast Success in a Pandemic

Podcast Success in a Pandemic

A video conversation between Imprint’s Meg Staknis and FlexShares’ Laura Hanichak Gregg.

COVID-19 turned the business world upside down and demanded laser focus from companies across all industries. The crisis has highlighted the essential need for effective communication and staying connected, especially in times of upheaval.

For the second installment of our “Clients on Strategy” vlog series, FlexShares Senior Vice President and Director of Research Laura Hanichak Gregg sat down with Imprint Managing Director Meg Staknis in May to discuss business-building changes amid the current pandemic.

A big success for FlexShares has been a strategic pivot to podcasts — a platform that recent research shows has seen its share of challenges during COVID-19. 

Listen in to discover more about:

  • FlexShares’ podcast strategy with The Flexible Advisor
  • Why podcasts are still working (hint: speed, efficiency and adaptability are among the top reasons).
