Doug Simon, President and CEO of D S Simon Productions, spoke with Ron Culp, Partner and Managing Director of Ketchum, after he received the John W. Hill Award at the 2011 PRSA-NY Big Apple Awards. Ron shares some advice on how to deliver your opinion in a professional setting without damaging your image or career.

Some of Ron’s VlogViews:
