Harold Burson inspired both of us. His work transformed both disciplines and continues to guide our approach to communications. He will be missed. @TerryFlynn wroteThis week can’t end soon enough: deaths of McMaster students onboard Ukrainian International Airlines flight from Tehran; death of PR legend Harold Burson; and now Canadian rock and roll drumming legend Neil Peart. Let’s keep with the notion that things happen in 3s, please. #RIP @fontbandit wroteNeil Peart and Harold Burson on the same day. Two people leaving behind an awful lot of inspiration. Thank you both.
