Getting attention in today’s world can be challenging. It’s no longer enough to rely solely on traditional media or grassroots engagement to get a story out to the public and garner support. That's why we teamed up with Social Impact Studios to present Public Image Works, which takes a unique approach to communications and promotions.

Offered March 2015 - July 2015.
