The good folks at advertising agency The Richards Group generously provided space for us to gather, and, as part of the deal, we had an opportunity to witness what in my opinion is a true “all-about-people” story. What happened, you ask? It’s one thing to say your employees are happy; it’s another to witness that happiness. But this post isn’t about the “business.”. Teamwork. passion for what you’re doing.

To me, this can be much more impactful when it comes to reaching our end-objectives (which is what we should begin with when we embark on public relations , right?) than, say, focusing on reaching traditional media first, and social second. You need to reach people to get them to do something? And on Nov. And I sure would.
