CommsHero – Keeping it real since 2014

by Josephine Graham @iojosy I’ve never worked in London. I’ve visited a few times and it’s nice enough. You’ve got some great museums, a few palaces and a heck of a lot of company headquarters. And with all that corporate workforce to cater for, London also has scores of breakfast briefings,…

No, You’re The Hero

“The only real mistake is the one from which we learn nothing.” – Henry Ford I went to a fantastic conference this week. #CommsHero, hosted by the lovely guys at resource, is all about bringing like-minded communications professionals together to hear from influential speakers, share best…
