2020 Digital Media Summit
October 21 - October 23Free
Like most events this year, the 2020 Digital Media Summit is going, well…digital! In light of the ongoing pandemic, PRSA Capital Region will present a series of three, hour-long virtual sessions in lieu of our usual in-person summit. Mark your calendars for:
With the growth of digital and social media, a storytelling approach to branding is critical. Stories are inherently social and social media is all about building relationships. In order for your audience to form a personal connection with your brand, your stories must be honest, inspirational and real; connecting with engaging, useful content. In this talk with Capital Region BOCES Communications Program Managers Jodie Orzechowski, APR, and Steve King, you’ll learn the importance of a personalized approach to content creation.

We didn’t need The Social Dilemma to figure out that social media has become more of a minefield than ever. Overit Vice President of Strategy and Communications Paul Fahey moderates a discussion about how companies and individuals can best navigate business and personal communication amid the current landscape, including sensitivity towards topics like #metoo, Black Lives Matter, LGBTQ rights, anti-masking and the hot button political scene: with Khamali Brown, director of special projects, SEAT Center; Miriam Dushane, PHR, SHRM-CP, managing partner, Alaant Workforce Solutions; Rose Miller, SPHR, HR consultant/president, Pinnacle Human Resources, LLC, Times Union columnist; Catharine E. Potvin, founder/CEO, Stragility, LLC, NYS Certified WBE. Click here to register.
Today’s new cycle lasts no longer than a heavy sigh. Our harried partners in the media are juggling breaking news, conflicting reports, social media channels and more. B95.5 Program Director/Music Director/Morning Show Host Chad O’Hara; Miles Reed, editor, Daily Gazette; and Benita Zahn, DPS, anchor/health reporter/producer/host, WNYT, will discuss how media outlets are coping with the chaos and best pitching and engagement practices for PR professionals trying to be heard against the din.
