48 Examples of External Communication

External communication is any exchange of information between an organization and anyone who doesn't directly work for that organization. This is considered more sensitive than internal communications because it involves important external stakeholders such as investors, regulators, customers, partners and communities. External communications are difficult to control such that they may enter the public record where they can never be fully retracted. It is also common for competitors and the media to monitor such communications. The following are common examples of external communications.
