Gulf Coast Chapter PRSA Annual Media Event
It’s all about the relationships baby!
Getting good news media coverage for your business or clients is largely affected by your relationship with news media gatekeepers and reporters. But what does a “relationship” with media really entail? Well, for starters, it can’t just be “all about you (or your organization)!”
To help you on your quest to build (or enhance) your relationship with the local media we are turning the tables for this special session. Instead of putting our media friends on the spot by firing questions at them as they sit on a panel or having them rush through speed networking, we’re going to take time to reconnect with our media “friends” as human beings!
Join us on Tuesday, September 25 for a special networking session with local news media reps from television, print and radio. Take this opportunity to initiate or enhance your relationship by learning more about their families, community involvement, hobbies, what’s new at their media outlet, and more. But remember, relationships are not one-sided! Be ready to share your own human side!
From a business standpoint, we know you want and need updated tips and preferences for sharing and pitching story ideas with each of our media reps,,, but let’s not bog down our friends with these tedious questions. Instead we’re going to gather that information in advance and prepare a special hand-out that you can take back to your office and keep as a reference.
Special Location and Early Deadline:
This session is being hosted by Avow Hospice and will be held at the Ispiri community center located on the Avow Campus at 1095 Whippoorwill Lane in Naples (just off Pine Ridge Rd. near I-75 Exit 107).
Check-in and networking will open at 11:30 AM. Lunch begins promptly at noon.
Don’t miss this special opportunity to make new or to reconnect with your media friends!
