Office Hours: Your communications growth strategy
February 21 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm GMT
Join us for our Office Hours session where we’ll be inviting Julia Herd, MD at Five in a Boat.
About the session
The session will focus on providing counsel to businesses which are looking to move to the next level using communications as one of their core growth strategies. Most start-ups need to be cash conscious so it is about investing in the right activities to deliver an effective return. Counsel will range from how to build a brand, to how to profile execs, to how to secure the next level of funding and everything in between.
