Why did you say yes to become a CommsHero Ambassador?

I wanted to be a part of the Comms Hero programme as I love being a part of the comms community and giving back my knowledge and experience. Also, as comms professionals our role is to not only speak to but share the voices of and represent the many different audiences we engage with. CommsHero has always been great at doing this so this programme was something I wanted to be a part of.
