NNR at the Georgia Real World Conference

NinerNation Relations was front and center at the Georgia Real World Conference in Atlanta this past Friday.  We were in company of our fellow PRSSA members who not only attended the conference but were active participants. We began our day with a delightful breakfast while PRSA Georgia President, Stephen Brown spoke to us about creating our personal brand and how to network a room. With an alarming (pun intended) end to our opening session our members were off to explore three breakout sessions from experts in the PR field from Edelman, Carvel, Porter Novelli and more.

We took on the PR Real World Conference as young professionals preparing to enter the field. After the last breakout session we gathered in the grand ballroom to eat a delicious lunch while listening to the amazing and inspirational story of Cinnabon’s President, Kat Cole. Her words were incredibly motivational and that was a perfect way to end the sessions.
Conferences are a wonderful way to get to know other members in the field from all across the country. As public relations practitioners, our job is to create and maintain relationships and what better way than taking one of the first steps: registering for a conference. And for our UNC Charlotte members, the Real World Conference is an easy 3 hour drive, so there should be no excuse.

Atlanta will also house the 2015 PRSSA National Conference, as well as the PRSA International Conference. PRSSA members are encouraged to attend this amazing opportunity and for those graduating in May, the International Conference will be right around the corner. More information can be found at the following National PRSSA or National PRSA websites:
