Listen to Episode

My guest today is Candace Steele Flippin, DM. Candace is currently the chief communications officer for Acuity Brands– a 4 Billion dollar revenue organization, and previously served as Chief Communications Officer of First Horizon Bank, a 3.49 Billion dollar revenue bank. Acuity has 11,500 employees, and First Horizon has 7,000 plus employees. 

She also has her Doctor of Management from Case Western Reserve University out of Cleveland, Ohio. 

Candace is on this podcast because I want to understand what works and what doesn’t work when you’re communicating with 10k people and do that in a way that’s actually effective. This podcast turned out to be so much more.

You’ll hear everything from:

  • Why her parents never held back the dreams and ambitions of her and her siblings growing up after they were raised in the Jim Crow south
  • How generations change and how this affects work and what people want- what works and what doesn’t, bringing people together to make sure people do great work and take care of the customer
  • Helping women grow and get the jobs they need, not staying stuck, and addressing pay parity
