"This year at the ICCO Summit we were discussing how the PR industry needs to change in order to be relevant in the future, and our three extraordinary Hall of Fame recipients have demonstrated throughout their entire careers the tenacity to question the status quo, and succeed by doing things differently. They should be an inspiration to all of us."
