Generation Y in your Office
My workshop will highlight a series of studies I did specific to Generation Y in the public sector and will show that in order to attract Generation Y graduates organizations need to market themselves as innovative and creative. In this session, attendees will be involved in an engaging and thought provoking discussion about the future communications office and the future communicator. Each attendee can expect to walk away with useful information to assist them in their own intergenerational workplace.

Managing the Media Mix
Is it time to bury the press release and retire your traditional media rolodex? In this session I will outline trends in new media and traditional media and help you identify ways to find your right media relations mix.
