A wary public, political overtones and tight budgets ... government agencies and non-profit organizations have more than their share of hurdles in communicating with their stakeholders.
On the other hand, opportunities abound when communicating clear missions to serve the public good to audiences who are tuned in and often motivated to help.
Join us November 12 for an interactive panel discussion on the unique challenges and opportunities in these sectors:
