But I ask you, when do these amazing storytellers get to tell their own marketing stories? The answer is, right now!
If you are part of a marketing team that communicates your firm’s story every day, please take this rare opportunity to tell your own marketing team’s success story. Why not step into the spotlight to share your team’s creativity and brilliance with the AEC community? Start today by submitting an entry for The Liberty Awards, SMPS New York’s annual marketing communications and professional achievement awards program. Online entries are due by Monday, April 30, 2018.
