Media relations is a critical skill in a PR professional’s arsenal and takes years of practice to perfect. The media landscape is as complex as it has ever been, and it is increasingly harder to attract attention from media. 

Mitch Leff, founder and president of Leff & Associates, will share how young professionals can continue to hone their media relations skills. Mitch is a widely respected public relations veteran, recognized as one of the most skilled media relations specialists in Atlanta. In 2003, he founded Leff & Associates, offering clients a full range of public relations services, focusing on strategic public relations counsel, program development, media relations, public affairs, crisis communications and media training. Prior to the discussion we will serve breakfast, followed by a discussion with Mitch and Q&A with attendees. There will also be an opportunity for networking before and after the discussion. Be sure to bring your business cards! 

This event is hosted by the Young Professionals Special Interest Group (YP SIG). YP's programs and activities are targeted toward PR professionals with up to seven years experience, graduating students, professionals new to the industry and those just young at heart.
