Coming up next at 5 p.m. is our Tweet-Up with industry leader, author and keynote speaker Deirdre Breakenridge. This is an excellent opportunity for new connections and mentorships to form offline with Deirdre and other PR practitioners. The event will be held in the Chill Out Lounge, located on the first floor of the hotel. All professionals and students are encouraged to attend.
Deirdre (known in the Twitterverse as @dbreakenridge) is responsible for co-founding #PRStudChat – a monthly Twitter chat between public relations professionals and students. The chat has exploded in popularity since it first launched in August 2009. Each month, more and more PR pros and pros-to-be join to discuss topics such as: what to include in a PR portfolio; how to build beneficial client/agency relationships; what new graduates should expect from future employers; how to maximize internship opportunities; the role of social media in PR; etc.
We hope to see you there!
