You know those middle-of-the-night thoughts that you write down in hopes that you won’t forget them by morning? Well, early last year, I had one of those dreams/nightmares of standing in a PR seminar listening to people talk about the art of writing press releases and literally falling asleep. So we decided to combat the bad dreams and launch the Get Connected series of professional development/networking events for senior-level marketing and communication pros. These invitation-only events provide an opportunity for leaders to gather in a peer-oriented environment to learn about new trends in the industry, discuss challenges and opportunities and network with one another.
So this February 18th, we will host 40 guests for our first Get connected event of 2009 titled: The Best Way to Deliver Tough News in Tough Times. We have a solid line up of speakers including Gil Rudawsky, Deputy Metro Business editor, Rocky Mountain News; Lynn Kimbrough, Communications Director, Denver District Attorney’s Office, Ken Keymer, Restaurant Industry Veteran, former CEO of VICORP Restaurants, Inc. and former President of Noodles & Company and Jim D. Leonard, Faegre & Benson LLP
If you are a senior-level marketing/public relations practitioner and are interested in obtaining an invitation to our next Get Connected event, send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org . The cost is $25 and we give the proceeds to our Get Grounded charity program https://groundfloormedia.com/giving_back.html
