With the year coming to an end, this week’s episode delves into ten communication wins of the year by the people, politicians, brands, and beer drinkers who made headlines and then made hay from an earlier challenge they faced at some point in 2018.
The stories on the list range from publicity stunts to political maneuvers that captured the public’s attention over the past year. From #10 to #1, you will hear what made the story memorable and what was the communication strategy behind it landing it on the list.
This episode is the first in a two-part series of Top Communications for 2018. Next week I’ll explore the top communication fails of the year.
