Public Relations: Getting the Right Attention for Your Business
January 27 @ 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Learn how to build your reputation and achieve your business goals!
You know all about your business, what you offer and why others should want it, but sometimes entrepreneurs get stuck on knowing how to talk about it and sell it to those who want to listen – or how to build or grow a solid reputation using channels that work.
Join this interactive session on public relations and why it matters to you. We’ll break into smaller groups where you will receive 1:1 targeted advice and tools for your business and brand from one of the senior PR practitioner panelists.
Be prepared to discuss and explore topics such as:
– what PR really is and why it’s important to you
– how to build a reputation based on trust
– how to get and keep the attention of audiences you need to reach
– leverage strategies, tools and channels that will take your business to the next level.
Whether you are building, growing or expanding your business, this session will ensure you walk away with practical strategies and tips that will help you get to the next level of enhancing your professional and personal reputation. We’ll help you break through the noise and get the attention of audiences who will care about what you have to offer, no matter who they are: clients/customers, venture capitalists, investors, peers.
