FROM TACTICIAN TO STRATEGIST – EARN THE COMMUNICATIONS ROLE A SPOT AT THE LEADERSHIP TABLE

kelly Avants, APR, National School Public Relations Association President

Reputation management, crisis response, employee relations and other critical decisions all benefit from early communication planning; planning that starts at the highest level of organizational leadership.
