So Do I Ever Call a CEO?
From my point of view any excuse will do, as long as it is a rational excuse.
I am a prospector, trawling Canada News Wire for leads.
This morning my automated procedure Weather-Vain picked up on an announcement by a gold-mining firm; I read the announcement, trotted off to their web site (as listed in the press release) and received the following screen:
Maybe a real-live reporter got there first, but one of my roles is a technical support guy, so why not call his direct line and leave a short voice mail?
He hears my name at the start and at the end of the message. I bring him something of value, news. Bad news, to be sure, but better he learns about it sooner than later.
And someone should be calling me back Real Soon Now!
