What do you do now and what are you planning for the future? This year was tremendous for communications as we went remote. As our internal and external needs changed so dramatically we edited some of our comms planning as it was happening. As we look to the future, we are now taking these valuable lessons to make sure that we can always stay aligned with our employees and with our clients. Our content strategy, inbound and overall social will be a huge part of our marketing strategy…. The written word is as powerful now as it ever was.
