Last week, I had the pleasure of visiting my PRSA friends in Rochester at the PRSA Northeast District Conference. Together, we were blurring the lines and carving out the Modern Day Communicator.
Where did the summer go? It’s September, which, for most, marks the busy season. Vacation is over and our students, educators and pros are either back in the classroom or busy at work. On September 9th at 8:30 p.m. ET, the #PRStudChat and #PR20Chat communities will gather for a joint Twitter chat discussion on finding the most effective resources to include in a “Back to School #PRToolkit.”
I spent a good part of last week in Orlando at the Florida Public Relations Association (FPRA)…
It seems more and more businesses are trying to figure out Gen Y aka Millennials these days. First off…what is a Millennial? Some countries define the generation as anyone born from 1980 to the early 2000s; however, in the U.S. and the U.K. it is defined as anyone born from 1980 to the early 1990s – we’ll go with that one.

While summertime may mean a break from the classroom, ambitious students and professionals understand the importance of learning every day. Public relations students, professionals and educators will gather together on Wednesday, July 16th at 8:30 p.m. ET for a Twitter based discussion on how to leverage social media for a career in public relations.
Understanding the technology use of younger generations can often appear as something that’s far out of reach from the world of older professionals. Unlike generations before, Millennials have grown up with immediate access to various forms of technology and an extremely pervasive and media saturated society. The gap between generations in this way can be problematic for businesses attempting to market to a younger demographic. With the Youth Tech Briefing USA 2014, Voxburner is making an effort to bridge a gap in understanding between businesses and their targeted audience by interviewing over one thousand 16 to 24 year olds across the United States.
Every week, I look forward to a good tweet chat discussion. Participating in the conversation or even just following along is a great way to learn, get inspired and to meet interesting people. Joining a tweet chat discussion is a new way to network and it’s proving to be effective. However, what happens after a tweet chat is over? The hour is up and people go their separate Twitter ways. Too often it seems that the dynamic interactions end after the event and some of the great connections are lost.
