TALK Continues Its Summer   Bring Business Back Series   to Assist Companies, Corporations and Small Businesses

TALK would like to offer you guidance from experts who have the experience to assist in your planning for the next quarter. It's time to take action, and look at where your marketing, PR, sales, and related communications are taking you. Is the digital transformation curve working for you? Are you telling the stories you need to be telling? If COVID-19 shut you down, do all your stakeholders know you are back with doors open? Each Tuesday at 1 PM, we will look at topics of interest to assist you in your outreach and getting your communications back on track. We will look at what other executives are doing, what markets dictate, and how strategy can drive you through the next few quarters with COVID-19 being the wild card. $10 per session, and you could get the counsel you need to step forward with clarity and purpose.
