As a consultant in communications and PR, it is all about delivering the right message to the right target group.

Change and how to flow with it

Authenticity

A popular word these days. Companies, people, professions, everything and everyone seems to be searching for authenticity. Vacancy profiles often mention they are looking for ‘an authentic person’.
