Through numerous examples, cases, theories and easily applied methods and models, the book offers a clear introduction and guide to working with strategic communication – whether you are working with large-scale, international cultural events, place-branding of cities and countries, broad audience-involving events on social media platforms, or small, underground punk concerts.
