Communications in Bruxelles, Belgique
All communication, intentional or unintentional, has some effect. But only when it produces the desired result is it really 'effective communications'. It results in what the communicator wants. It serves the purpose for which it was planned or designed, which in advocacy communications is to create emotion and engagement for an issue, in people, that leads to the desired change.
