In this Executive Guide, we have brought together the learnings from EBU Member directors general across Europe. These leaders have already launched and capitalized on research and advocacy strategies to identify and highlight the impact PSM have.
You will learn how to rethink your organization’s purpose, define its value, develop a long-term strategy, measure your impact and build a meaningful story. You will also find out how, as director general, you can connect employees, stakeholders and, most importantly, citizens to the value your organization creates for society.
