June 29th Breakfast workshop: Size Doesn’t Matter: How Small PR Organizations Can Build Big Brands

Date: June 29, 2016

Time: 7:30 am - 11:30 am

Size Doesn’t Mat­ter: How Small PR Orga­ni­za­tions Can Build Big Brands

Join us on June 29, 2016 when PCC’s break­fast work­shop goes sub­ur­ban and tack­les the chal­lenge of build­ing a suc­cess­ful brand for your orga­ni­za­tion. It’s not just some­thing done by big com­pa­nies and global agen­cies. Every client and every orga­ni­za­tion has a story to tell, and it needs to be told right — par­tic­u­larly in an increas­ingly com­pet­i­tive media and con­sumer mar­ket. This panel of experts will talk brand­ing at every level, from health­care to park dis­tricts and bou­tique agen­cies. They’ll inter­ac­tively dis­cuss iden­ti­fy­ing and build­ing your brand, devel­op­ing your story and telling it effec­tively, whether you rep­re­sent indi­vid­u­als, niche indus­tries, edu­ca­tion or beyond.

Lead­ing the dis­cus­sion will be:

  • Andrea Grostern, Pro­gram Direc­tor of Brand Man­age­ment at North­west­ern Memo­r­ial HealthCare
  • Sameera Luth­man: Direc­tor of Mar­ket­ing and Com­mu­ni­ca­tions, Naperville Park District
  • Sue Mark­graf: Pres­i­dent, Green­Mark Pub­lic Rela­tions, Inc.
  • Patrick Mogge: Direc­tor of Com­mu­nity Engage­ment and Out­reach, High School Dis­trict 214 (Moderator)

Com­pli­men­tary con­ti­nen­tal break­fast will be served from 8:00 am until 8:30 am
