Social Media Strategies and Corporate Communications.
Richard Binhammer has always worked with great leaders and companies. In his 30 years plus career, he has focused on problem solving, organized change, communications and public support. Fortunately, Binhammer has always found himself in a position of respectful influence. He started in politics building electoral coalitions and managing election campaigns.
Shortly after this he advised organizations and companies on solutions to public policy issues. He was involved in lobbying and public affairs and moved onto public relations and corporate communications. During this time, Richard developed policies related to the emerging online world and how these policies were having an impact and changing how we think about communications and corporate reputations.

Coming to social and business with this background has offered me the chance to experience both the tremendous challenges and opportunities that social media creates for communications and public relations. The social Web has significant implications for the fundamental underpinnings and strategies of successful public relations. More detailed background and expertise is available on LinkedIn
