“As part of our efforts to make sure we continue to be a leading university for our communications approaches and practices, we asked Justin Shaw and his team at Communications Management to be part of our own communications review team. They were able to work with us as a trusted adviser in this review and to provide important evidence of competitors and relevant comparators. They looked at our digital communications, internal communications with staff and students, media and public affairs, and alumni relations. Their work has been important in identify continuing improvements.”
