Mass Comm Week event announced The Best for and by Bobcats: PR Cases
Speed networking-style event with four PR professionals as guest speakers
SAN MARCOS, Texas – On Tuesday, Oct. 25, the School of Journalism and Mass Communication and the Texas State University PRSSA chapter will be hosting a speed networking event during Mass Communication week from 3:30-4:50 p.m. in Old Main 320.
The speed networking is called The Best for and by Bobcats: PR Cases, and will consist of four public relations professionals speaking to students about notable case studies from their work in the public relations field.
“We understand how important it is that students gain an understanding of real-world situations,” head event-organizer and public relations professor Olga Mayoral Wilson, APR and Fellow PRSA said. “This is why we are bringing in some of the best and brightest in the PR field to speak about topics, such as social media entrepreneurship, crisis management and digital campaigns.”
Each speaker will be at a table with ten students, where they will share information about one specific PR case they managed successfully. The session will end with a Q&A panel, and students will then move to a different table with a new speaker.
“By bringing in multiple speakers, we are allowing students to learn what they normally could from four separate information sessions in a single sitting,” PRSSA President Kristen Torrez said. “We are very excited about the useful knowledge that our Bobcats will gain from this event.”
The speakers that will be attending include Adrianna Hernandez, owner of Adri Hernandez Business Marketing for Busy Mompreneurs; Crews Laing, Better Homes and Garden digital marketing specialist; Sarah Sutton, account-coordinator at Hahn Public Relations; and Marmie Edwards, APR, accreditation director at Edwards Communications.
Students and professors are encouraged to attend this event. To find out more information about this event and other Mass Comm Week events, visit their website: www.txstatemcweek.com
