What is Comms Planning? is a presentation that provides a clear answer of the role of the Comms Planner within an Advertising Agency. I use the example of the Puma Social campaign to prove the point.

  • looks like Planner takes care from beginning to the end, except executions stage definitely, so where is the role of Account Director? I thought KPI of execution stage, for example 'Add Value - Digital Hub' in your sample is supposed to be done by Account Director no?
