Her practical advice, strong understanding of not only public relations but all related fields in communications (marketing, internal communications, reputation management, advocacy relations) and her deep experience in these areas provides the students with real-life insight into PR and communications. She's very comfortable presenting and gives excellent tips for doing so successfully - as well as how students can work successfully and strategically with media and other important stakeholders.
