Every company owner would like to be able to say so.
But when do we become company ambassadors?
What is the role of trust to managers and the organization?
Does one have to agree with the company’s values entirely?
What motivates us to tell others about the company we work for?
What builds the feeling of ownership among employees?
I have been asking myself these questions for years. I run a company
and I want my associates to be the showcase of AUDE.
The size of a company does not matter, whether we have
one employee or thousands of them.
Only when we make them the ambassadors of our brand
do we get a chance to succeed in a spectacular way.
This is why I decided to write this book.
My interviews with people who deal with communication
clearly show how simple and simultaneously how complex
the question of building employee’s engagement is.
I hope we were able to present it from various angles:
from strategic to operative perspectives, and that not only
I but also my customers will be able to find the best method
to turn employees into company ambassadors.
I wish to thank my interviewees for devoting their time and sharing their experience.

This is not a thick volume, rather a small 150-page book.
We wanted it to be not only wise but also good-looking.
11 interviews and 4 funny stories.
Short quotes from the interviews will encourage you to read the entire book.

I like to know what others think about a product I intend to buy. Before the book was printed I asked several people to read it in the pdf
and review it. If you would like to review the book, you are very welcome to do so.
This collection of interviews about the meanders of internal communication is a good
read. Why? “Communication is not about words. It's about culture.” Isn't it worth
reading a book where you can find many such thoughts that really hit the mark?
Diversified, competent interviewees plus the author of questions who knows this area
of marketing inside out guarantee an inarguably useful read.
How do you make people you work with and support with your knowledge and
experience –and also learn from them - simply like the company they work for? Is this the
first and obligatory step to make them company ambassadors - or maybe it's enough to
motivate them with your own attitude?
This is only one of the many inquisitive questions Urszula Radzińska asked her 11 guests.
The choice wasn't a coincidence. Being the head of Aude content marketing agency for many
years, she knows from her own experience how important communication coordinated with
goals is for each company. As the founder and president of the Content Marketing Polska
Association and member of the International Content Marketing Forum, she has a great
occasion to watch good practices of European and American companies and organizations.
This provides Urszula with a wide perspective for a deep analysis, and the readers with an
Do you get a ready-made method of turning an employee into a company ambassador?
Absolutely not! Those who hope to find ready-made solutions will be disappointed, as this is
not the goal of the book. It's not a guidebook, even less a beginner's book. It is an invitation
for a deeper analysis, inspiration to look closer at your organization and to make an
individual attempt to define the role of employees anew. Since unbiased perspective is more
and more in deficit with so many duties around, it is definitely worth reading.
P.S. What would content be without design, particularly in conent marketing!?
The extraordinary design and funny images (it's good to let go once in a while)
were created by Marcin Rutkowski.
Most companies talk about employees’ commitment. What do they actually mean,
asks the author of Your First Customer book, Urszula Radzinska. One of her
interviewees, Jacek Wasilewski answers that they often don’t know. How true
that is no matter the location. Thus, I’d really like to recommend this collection
of short yet really useful interviews on content marketing and internal/employee
communication. Brands for the most part spend way too much effort, time and
money on communicating with their clients, buyers… But most of them make a
mistake not putting as much effort to their best potential brand ambassadors,
their employees. This is not a philosophy, it should be a reality. Start with this book!
I didn't write the book for money, but with the idea of knowledge-sharing in mind.
However, there are a few ways to get it.
