Power Metrics of PR - December 10 Luncheon

we remain effective in our core competency of media outreach? Second,
how do we find meaningful, measurable ways to deliver value in a time
when “media impressions” aren’t measured in tonnage? This presentation
will highlight, through case studies and real-world examples, how
navigate today’s new PR paradigm.
