Who Should Take This Course

Communicators who work at large public companies will realize the greatest benefit from this content, mostly because it was created from scratch with you in mind.

Never has the challenge to achieve differentiated and meaningful awareness of your innovation been more great, just as it as never been more difficult; achieving earned media exposure, in contrast to the more readily accessible tools of paid and owned media, remains the most important achievement for any communications.

This course breaks through the clutter on how to do it.
