Brian Kerry is the public relations director for Billings Industries, a company that has a large campus with beautiful gardens and a park-like setting. Falling Water Sounds, a local arts organization, wants to host a summer concert series on the company’s campus where people can bring their friends and families, enjoy a picnic, and listen to a variety of music groups. Falling Water Sounds wanted to have the concert series in city parks, but people cannot bring alcohol into city parks, and Falling Water Sounds wants people to be able to enjoy whatever food and drink they want to bring to the concert and does not anticipate a rowdy crowd or illegal activity. The goal is to get families and friends together for an evening of music.

However, Brian decides to deny the request. Discuss at least one reason why Brian might deny the request. Assume the role of Brian and discuss how you would explain and justify your decisio
