Peter Dawyot, The Founder of The Publicus Community was recently featured as a source in an article for Entrepreneur Magazine. The article, “Running a Business While Dealing With a Personal Loss” reflects on leaders who successfully manage a company while dealing with a loss of a loved one.

In the case of Peter Dawyot and The Publicus Community, this loss occurred during a business trip. “I had been pitching a client in Idaho and was returning home when I found out that my mother had passed away,” said Dawyot.

During this time, Dawyot continued to build The Publicus Community by increasing the number of employees, gaining new clients, and representing the company’s clients to the best of the company’s abilities, all the while finding ways to honor his mother.

In the time that followed, the success of The Publicus Community continued to grow. The work that was created for the client in Idaho that was secured during his mother’s death, was recognized with numerous awards, including an Addy from the American Advertising Federation, and a Gold Medal in the Sir Walter Raleigh Awards for Excellence in Communication.
