Communications team building and reorganisation

"Allegory gets strategic communications with a vengeance. Its contribution to the OU and FutureLearn has been significant, supporting me and my team deliver a ground-breaking communications plan that credibly and compellingly conveys our track record for innovation. Emma and her team truly understand the pressures of in-house comms, and find solutions where others get overwhelmed by problems.”
