The Communication Blog

Those with greater research competencies will be teaching those with less competence.

New research questions the benefits of custom animation in PowerPoint

Pew Research Center, Thank You for Not Calling

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

The Pew Research Center, the gold standard in polling, has gotten the message: Don't call us for your research. As Pew itself reports, it is switching to taking surveys via email. In 1997, 36% of those contacted by phone agreed to participate in the survey. In 2017, that declined to 7%. And in 2018, it went down another percentage point to 6. If only other organizations would get that message and stop telemarketing to us.
