Having been a Comms2Point0 ‘Guest Editor for the Day’ last year, we were delighted to get the chance to have another go!
Comms2Point0 (@comms2point0) is a fantastic online resource for creative communications folk, founded by leading public sector communicators Dan Slee (@danslee) and Darren Caveney (@darrencaveney). Well worth a follow on Twitter and there’s a whole heap of fantastic content on their unconventional and invaluable site.
We were asked to provide a guest blog post on the subject of our choice, six useful links to share, a little know fact about our organisation and a music track of the day.
