We continue our FCS MOVES conversations with senior marketing and communications executives from leading financial services companies with our discussion with Andrea Williams, Managing Director, Head of Media Relations, Goldman Sachs, on Thursday, April 28, beginning at 12pm ET.
In a live interview with FCS Programming Chair John McCormick of AdNode, Andrea will talk about how earned and paid media can work together to build a successful executive communications strategy. Andrea will also discuss Goldman Sachs' pursuit of top-level talent, especially as she continues to build her team.
