In what area of marketing/PR do you see the most innovation?
Creative storytelling & Content. Given my start as a blogger and social media influencer, my perspective may be biased! However, I continue to be inspired and moved by the quality and substance of the content being created day in and day out. The creative use of various platforms - from Periscope to Instagram and beyond - is a refreshing commentary on the power of voices, and the need to connect with one another.
