RNL assigns a specific team to each partner, with a team lead who manages all aspects of the relationship. Your team schedules regular meetings with client stakeholders to review results, tweak strategies, and amend plans accordingly. Annual or quarterly reviews also allow for the updating of all campaigns and strategies to reflect new institutional priorities or developments.
