As we enter the last couple of months of 2018, we’re focused on business development and budget planning with current clients.

The final quarter is also an ideal time to examine where our clients should focus and the trends that could become go-to tactics in 2019.

You can hit the new year running if you plan now. You might even unearth opportunities, such as a new trade show or nascent possibilities in the digital landscape.

Gayle Lynn Falkenthal of Falcon Valley Group recommends: “Check all current plans, and update for 2019, including your strategic communications plan, crisis communications plan and anything else relevant. Also, update editorial calendars for 2019.”
