PR experts are attuned to the momentum of the media.

If No One Knows You're Out There

The tension in the room was palpable. The CEO was clearly an unwilling hostage to the situation; that seemed clear. Amy and I were invited to this meeting by T, the vice president of marketing. He wanted to pursue a more aggressive marketing campaign to help his underperforming potential monster technology.
