Why did you say yes to become a CommsHero Ambassador?

I’ve got some much out of the #CommsHero community, the sense of camaraderie, the support network, the expertise, hints and tips it’s all so valuable, so being able to give a little back is an absolute no brainer. Plus when we deliver the plans that are being discussed its going to be epic, and I don’t want FOMO.
