On Wednesday, December 15, 2010 at 8:30 p.m. the #PRStudChat community gathers for our Holiday chat session, the 12 Gifts of #PRStudChat. We’ll ask our community how each of the 12 gifts below have helped them during 2010 (at the same time recognizing those special people who help to deliver these gifts to us all year round):
Gift #12: Creativity. What inspires you? When/where/how do you do your best brainstorming?
Gift #11: Curiosity. What do you want to learn more about in 2011?
Gift #10: Organization. What tips do you have for staying organized?
Gift #9: Fun. How do you find fun in your job?
Gift #8: Time. What are your top secrets for time management/ multi-tasking?
Gift #7: Friendship. Can friendships emerge from professional relationships? How?
Gift #6: Opportunity. How do you create and make the most of opportunities (biz or personal)?
Gift #5: Listening. How do you become skilled at listening?
Gift #4: Learning. Where do you find learning opportunities?
Gift #3: Trust. Who do you trust? How do you build trust online?
Gift #2: Leadership. What are the most important traits in a leader?
Gift #1: Community. What makes an individual a valuable member of the community?
As a special gift to the community, our #PRStudChat sponsor that night, SWAGG, will offer one lucky student a $200 scholarship toward their education. SWAGG joins us on Wednesday, and is in the process of rolling out a mobile app during the month of December helping to simplify holiday shopping.
The free app lets friends give and receive gift cards from their smart phones as well as digitally keep track of gift cards, rewards and loyalty cards, cutting down on old-school plastic — relevant considering 60 percent of Americans will ask for gift cards this year (National Retail Federation).
In addition, SWAGG is giving back through its partnership with Stand Up to Cancer. Every time the app is downloaded either on Android or iPhone between now and Dec. 31, 2011, SWAGG will donate $1 per registration to Stand Up to Cancer, up to $125,000. You can find SWAGG on twitter @swaggmobile and on Facebook.
We’re excited for our Holiday chat and the scholarship offering. During the session, we will be posting a question to the #PRStudChat blog. Students who answer the question will be a part of a random selection process, with one lucky student to be awarded the SWAGG Scholarship!
We hope you will join us on the night of December 15th and help us to celebrate the 12 gifts of #PRStudchat.
