The News from Financial Narrative: Awards, Salary Data & ESG

Financial Narrative is turning up the heat on 2022 this summer with in-person events, awards, and discussions with the movers and shakers of the financial marketing and communications community. 

Our first-ever Cocktails with Communicators: NYC event on June 21 brought together a lively group of financial marcomms leaders, who connected over hand-crafted (and personally created) cocktails courtesy of our board member Michael Marinello. Check out the short video of the networking happy hour that captures the vibe nicely. 

Here are a few more updates from the Financial Narrative community: 


We are delighted to announce the launch of the 2022 Financial Narrative Awards. Nominate financial marketing and communications superstars (aka your colleague, yourself, boss, or team members) in two categories – Financial Marketing Leadership Award and Financial Marketing Rising Stars Award – by August 19, 2022. 


Many of our members are struggling with hiring and retention, and some are currently in the job market themselves. Please take the 5-minute, anonymous survey to provide yourself and others with a picture of salaries and hiring across the industry. Participating in the survey will give you first access to the results in the coming weeks!


To provide the benefits of Financial Narrative to your wider teams as part of your retention and development plans, see our Teams offerings. This offering allows your entire team to attend certain Financial Narrative events, have access to our research and resources, and become part of the community. Contact me for details of the program.
