The Message Makeover Podcast: Mark Zuckerberg and the $150B Conference Call

This post was written by Dan Cooney, Director of Coaching and Senior Facilitator at The Latimer Group.

On July 25, 2018, Facebook held its Q2 earnings call, during which Facebook stock dropped by 24%, and net value decreased by as much as $150B. What happened on that call? What was discussed? (Audio of the call is available at the following link.)

In the latest episode of The Message Makeover podcast, The Latimer Group’s Dean Brenner and Dan Cooney talk about what went on during that conference call, and whether there were specific messaging decisions from CEO Mark Zuckerberg and the Facebook team that contributed to the decline.
