Women In PR, a professional organization dedicated to connecting like-minded women with nationwide professional development seminars and online public relations resources, celebrated their one-year anniversary in New York City with a two-day conference.
Public relations professionals and students from around the country joined Women In PR founder, Anje Collins, and her team for a two-day boot camp. During the boot camp, participants discussed “Fashion & Beauty PR: Where to I start?”, “Being a woman in PR: How to act like one”, “How to create opportunity in 2012″ and “How to make social media work for you and your client.”
Attendees were given the chance to network with top industry professionals and ask questions about their experience.
The event was preceded by a cocktail reception at Flatiron Hotel on Thursday hosted by Tené Nícole, Marketing and Public Relations Firm to celebrate the anniversary and introduce the boot camp professionals.
Here is what attendees had to say:
First, I would like to say how much I enjoyed the Women in PR boot camp this weekend. I definitely learned a lot and you are an amazing woman! I was wondering if you knew of any job positions within fashion PR or event production. I will be graduating this weekend and the job hunt has been stressing me out! I really appreciate all of your help!
I loved the class. Even thought I have been doing events/meetings/publicity for a while I always love an opportunity to learn something new…. and I learned a lot from you! You are an awesome person and I love your energy.
It is possible to get a list of the attendees, with e-mail addresses? I would love to stay in contact with the class and follow their careers.
Also, anytime you know of an opportunity in NYC, please let me know. As a freelancer I am always looking for work.
All the best,
