Have you heard this joke: An advertising exec, a PR director and a marketing officer walk into a bar, and... The idea that these three folks would even walk into a bar together may evoke laughter, given the constant drumbeat that the three disciplines are not exactly working well together.

This was borne out at the Integrated Communications Thought Leaders Roundtable held in late September in Minneapolis and hosted by PR News and VMS.
