As an entrepreneur you know that responsive and accurate customer communication is critical to building a successful brand and growing your business. But many entrepreneurs pay far less attention to the equally important task of internal communications. Especially in difficult economic circumstances, effective communication with your employees can help you maintain an energized team that understands the firm's strategic objectives and delivers value for your customers.

Please join us on Monday, April 7, 2003 for a Houston Texchange panel discussion on "Best Practices in Internal Communications: Get your people on the same page and grow your business." We will be meeting again at Massa's Grill at 1331 Lamar in downtown Houston, at 6 pm. The event is being generously sponsored by Frost Bank.

Joining us will be a panel of individuals with in-depth experience in crafting effective internal communications strategies at both emerging businesses and Fortune 500 firms.
