Last week’s blog post focused on the reasons why you should Treat Every Meeting Like a First…
This post is Part I of a two-part series on Treating Every Meeting Like a First Interview….
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.
I had the privilege of speaking at the FutureComms 14 Conference in London on June 18th. Here are the Twitter highlights from the conference, if you’re interested in a day of the dynamic speakers, hot topics and plenty of insights all focused on one burning question … what is the future of communications? I opened the conference with a keynote discussing a communications journey; certainly not a simple or short one, but rather a long journey with constant changes, challenges, and rewards.
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.
Now that school is out many of our students have started interning or they are working full-time in the field. They’ve been building their resumes and portfolios from the start of their school careers, knowing that graduation was always just around the corner.
In an effort to further help our students, as they explore their PR and communication career options, #PRStudchat invites you to join a community discussion on Wednesday, June 25th at 8:30 p.m. ET, focusing on the topic “Building Your Brand to Land Your Dream Job.”
The question, “What is the future of communications?” is the question of the year; one that’s being addressed in many different professional circles. On May 28th, I participated in a Google Plus on air hangout with Adam Cranfield, Neville Hobson, Danny Whatmough and Paul Sutton to answer some very targeted questions about PR and communications moving forward. You can check out the videos below for an introduction to the larger discussion that will continue on June 18th at the FutureComms 14 Conference in London. I’ll be delivering the opening keynote address, sharing my thoughts on how we need to move forward as modern communicators.
After reading Spin Sucks by my friend, Gini Dietrich, I was inspired to do a video post. This book packs a punch with helpful information, useful examples and how to move forward to tell a better story. I also engaged Gini in a Q&A so you can learn more about the book and to embrace what communications and reputation management looks like today and in the future.
