This book offers corporate writers, producers and directors an accessibly-written, hands-on guide to practical techniques important in producing high-quality, nuanced work in a corporate environment.

The book also features case studies illustrating real-life scenarios from the author and other corporate professionals, demonstrating these crucial techniques in practice. The Corporate Media Toolkit is a must-read for professionals and newcomers alike to bring their corporate media skills to the next level.
