Focused corporate communications affirm competitive thought leadership in the marketplace
How can a corporate communications team produce a groundbreaking product launch event in just over a month?
The client offers high-performance network infrastructure that enables global service providers, leading enterprises, and public sector organizations create value and accelerate business success. They have an exclusive focus on providing solutions that solve the toughest and most complex networking problems.
The corporate communications team had an opportunity to hold a product launch that leveraged the 40th anniversary of the launch of ARPANET. The ARPANET project revolutionized how people communicated, and revealed breakthrough changes in client technology, business models and network partnerships. This product announcement was one of the most important since the company’s initial product launch, and effective corporate communication had the potential to fundamentally transform marketplace perceptions.
The challenge was in the lack of time available. The event was in just over a month, and preparation had not yet begun. This meant the story needed to be crafted, messaging refined, executive schedules coordinated, presentations built and speeches written. There was no margin of error in the execution.
The corporate communications lead turned to The Spur Group to provide the bandwidth, insight and expertise to:
