Ridgefield, CT (PRWEB) - North Star Communications Consulting, the marketing and communications talent management consultancy, has added new training modules in planning, storytelling and social media training to its current lineup, and launched a new video that shows how it helps corporate and agency marketing and communications teams grow talent.

“With global clients across multiple industries, we’re seeing increased demand not only for our unique training modules, but our competency identification and talent assessment tools as well,” said North Star President Mark Dollins. “Those market needs prompted us to develop a new web video, a one-minute illustration of the consultancy’s focus on marketing and communications talent development.”
