Effectiveness Hall of Fame - Charlie Snow
Q: Describe the high point and low point of your career in the communications industry to date.

Low point – any pitch loss.
Q: In your work, who has had the biggest influence on your communications thinking and practice – and why?
Messrs Delaney (wisdom), Lund (business acumen), Knox (decency) and Warren (clarity of thought); and all for their sense of humour.
Q: What knowledge or skill do you have today that you wish you had possessed when you started out?
Keeping it simple.
Q: What is the single, most important change you have seen in the industry since you started? Has it been a change for the better or worse?
