This week on the PRmoment Podcast, I’m interviewing Michelle Goodall, chief marketing officer, Guild about the techniques required to build a community, the differences between a network and a community and what are the advantages for organisations in having an engaged community.
Do take a look at the stunning selection of free webinars we’ve got coming up: ranging from PR and TikTok, Changing your measurement mindset: from output to impact and Correlation or causation?: The link between corporate reputation and business performance.
