     Topic: PR 101

    Every day we are bombarded with stories in the news about companies and their leaders.  These stories can have a profound impact on the success of any company – big or small.   It has been said that media coverage is seven times more credible than advertising, and that third party endorsement is the most effective way to build brand reputation.  It is more important than ever to integrate public relations into your business strategy.

    In the December meeting, Mary Ann Freedman, President of Freedman & Associates Marketing Consultants, will discuss the role of public relations in building brand equity for tech businesses.   Using examples from both within and outside the tech sector, she will share insights on how the news media works, explore the role of online news and social media and provide tips on how to measure success.  

    Facilitators: Kevin D'Arcy of MES Hybrid Document Systems & Christopher Dippell of Vellum Marketing
