HEADS UP: We’ve had a swap in our lineup for March — the event has moved to March 30th and our new speaker is at the top of her game in the PR & media strategy world!
If you’ve ever tried to launch a company, event, or product and keep them in the eye of the media and public, you know how hard it can be to generate buzz and traction. That's why we are thrilled to have Merredith Branscombe with us (Founder of Leap Public Relations). She's built a company with integrity, killer instincts, and a healthy dollop of strategic savvy.
Merredith has 20 years of PR & media strategy under her belt and amazing PR wins with titans & startups. Her specialty: She helps to launch companies and nails down their messaging, media and business strategy. (Quite a few of those companies tend to get acquired.)
PR and media has changed significantly in just a few years. Media people have less time and there are less of them. How can you thrive in this new normal?
She’ll walk us through
- How she helps clients to refine & nail their story
- Help us to think like a journalist so we can capture their interest.
- Identify ways to humanize technology and so people care about it.
- Share her insights on the industry.
We’ll hear her story, insights, evolving field of PR tactics and some “crazy good” PR stories, too.
If you want insights on the art of capturing media interest and putting a company or product on the map, don’t miss our March 30th SheSays!
