PUBLIC RELATIONS NEW GENERATION
Jan 29, 2021 Season 1 Episode 23

Founder of News Generation, Susan Apgood and I speak about defining media relations in today's environment. 

  • How can businesses pitch themselves to perspective agencies
  • Selecting clients to work with
  • Content is key, but at what cost will it take to be found in an ever changing landscape
  • TV and Radio still hold major clout with consumers
  • Earning media placement
  • Press releases, pitches and press kits and how pages full of information have turned into snippets
  • Financial literacy is key to understanding the bigger picture, success, growth and acquisition
  • Grit is the word of the year

"Grit makes you better on those bad days" and they often "...define bad days as learning experiences."

We also discuss being a Professor in business at American University's Kogod School of Business. Susan brings real world experience to the classroom, and students bring her new perspectives with fresh eyes. The combination is what ignites a classroom full of inquiry and knowledge.
