When: Thursday, January 11
Time: 11:30 am Registration & Networking; Noon - 1:00 pm Lunch & Program

Where:
Maggiano's Buckhead

The most gripping stories out of recent headlines in Atlanta and around the world have involved a fleet of communicators helping our city in the wake of having a major highway destroyed, assisting cities suffering weather events and natural disasters and providing aid and support in a world faced with a refugee crisis. PR planning and a surefooted stream of communications have been vital to tackle these real-time challenges.

       

Stephany Fisher, formerly of CBS Atlanta and now communications manager at MARTA, will moderate a panel featuring three individuals at the heart of the stories and segments that have stirred and moved us:

  • Scott Higley, Director of Strategic Communications, Georgia Department of Transportation
  • Jacob Hawkins, APR, Corporate Communication Manager, Georgia Power
  • Nicole Harris, Media Relations Manager, CARE

Attendees of this first major PRSA Georgia luncheon of 2018 will learn:

  • What panelists knew and how soon they knew it about major issues that they faced as communicators
  • What systems in place helped them be ready for handling real-time crisis management
  • Lessons learned from situations that have been handled and are ongoing

Findings and tips that will help PR practitioners and marketers to maintain readiness in a time of shifting communications needs.

The year’s first PRSA Georgia seminar addresses an area that’s fundamental to each of our businesses: search engine optimization (SEO). In the crowded online marketplace of organizations and ideas, you and your content first have to be found! SEO is one of the most data-driven disciplines that PR communicators and marketers can leverage in driving more business.

She will teach seminar attendees the fundamental role PR plays in contributing to SEO, social signals you should heed and techniques for link building. Attendees will leave with an understanding of the fundamentals for ensuring you’re maximizing your organic, direct, referral and search functionality.

Some of her tips show how to “spoonfeed” Google and its changing algorithms. She also debunks myths such as “putting up press releases just for search” and “just write good content.”
