The staff at Weber Shandwick held an off-site panel discussion with all staff, which involved Senior Management attending the event to do a live Q & A and showcase their favorite campaigns. This allowed the Senior Management team to transfer their knowledge and speak to all employees across all the different practices as to why they believed the campaign of their choice was their favorite.
