Huge appreciation to Melissa Duren Connor and Libby Baker Baumgarten for hosting my New York Institute of Technology (NYIT) students! They came away from the lively and informative living room style conversation filled with more direction about how to develop their integrated communications plans (ICPs) for their real-world client, Digital Grandparents -- and more insight into how PR pros give their best thinking to clients every day! And, Shontal Hogan has to be the best meeting coordinator -- ever! The students & I look forward to ongoing collaboration with Jennifer Bett Communications -- and hope to see you in May, when the students will pitch their ICPs to their client! Thanks, indeed, for helping to grow the next generation of communications professionals! p.s. Looks like I can't post our fab photo with Melissa, Libby,& the students -- but you get the picture! Much gratitude.
