The world of IR is expanding to incorporate jobs covering multiple business segments in an effort to be more strategic: IR & Corporate Communications, IR & Treasury, IR & Corporate/Business Development, to name a few.  What exists today and is there a combination that makes the most sense? How do the multiple functions overlap – is it seamless, or more work?  This story telling discussion by IR practitioners who are “Double Dipping” will discuss how they found themselves in their combination job, the potentially new ways they engage the C-Suite, and how they work across their organizations for cross-functional collaboration.
