How To Embrace The Change – An Insider's View – April Newsletter
Sign up HERE to receive the Ceisler Media Newsletter each month!
A Message from Larry Ceisler
In this month’s newsletter we focus on how the evolution in culture, as well as media, impacts our work. But while the “how” may change, the “why” and “what” we do at Ceisler Media remains constant. Coalitions still must be built, credibility maintained and a good story is what people want to hear, read or watch.
You’ll find a blog in this newsletter from Senior Director Kirk Dorn on the importance of embracing change – while never forgetting the fundamentals. Elise Corbett offers advice she would give to someone just entering the business. And Senior Associate Max Weisman writes on the reward that comes from working on causes you truly believe in.
You’ll also find interesting news about our clients, developments at Ceisler Media and timely “Thought Leadership” posts from our management team.
Enjoy. And, as always, please feel free to reach out and contact us.
