A highlight of the episode is Craig’s perspective on relationship-building. In a domain where connections matter, Craig emphasises the significance of genuine, targeted, and timely communication. He recalls instances from his journalistic days, pointing out the pitfalls of generic outreach and the importance of understanding a journalist’s specific beat.
But it’s not just about understanding the journalists. It’s about recognising the ever-changing nature of the EU Bubble policy communications and tailoring your strategies accordingly.
