“Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success,” said Henry Ford.

Public relations (PR) is a far-reaching concept with deep arteries into advertising, marketing, digital strategy, graphic design, media relations, event planning and many other specialties.

The best PR practitioners have skills in each of these areas but realize that there are established specialists in each one of the given PR disciplines. Whether tapping into an internal subject-matter expert, a long-standing partnership, or pulling together a team of vendors to achieve the goal, collaboration is at the core of success.
