WNG Communications Roundtable

Thursday, January 26, 2017

Please join us when we convene our next WNG Communications Roundtable with Frances Reimers, Principal at Firestarter Communications.

About this Session:

Professional services firms are built on person-to-person relationships. In today’s digital marketing sphere, each of your employees can build and maintain a personal brand generating leads, boosting visibility, adding to the searchability of your firm, and capturing results not possible from advertising or waiting on referrals. In this session you will learn step-by-step how to build and maintain an employee-first marketing initiative for long-term company growth.
