“Communications is an essential component to building successful companies. A business may be the best one around in a given field but, if no one knows it, growth could be slow,” said Gerald L. Gordon, Ph.D., president and CEO of the FCEDA. “The FCEDA is delighted to present this series of workshops designed especially for small businesses that want to know more about the best ways to build awareness amongst potential partners, customers and the media.”

The Marketing Communications Strategies and Tactics series is being presented by the FCEDA in collaboration with its communications partners, Siddall and The Hodges Partnership.
