PR Power Up Workshop

The phenomenal Lillie Mae hosted The PR Power Up workshop series at The Microsoft Store in Lenox Mall over the weekend. PR Power Up is a preparatory workshop series for business owners and  individuals interested in pursuing Public Relations as a career -- to learn the key elements of successful PR, Branding and Media initiatives.





This was one of the best and most informative workshops that I have attended, I feel very much PR inclined with a plethora of knowledge from some industry professionals.

Below are a few key points that really stood out to me:


  • Blayne Alexander @ReporterBlayne (11 Alive) says before pitching a story to the news make sure you cover the 3R's - Relevance, Relate-ability, and Relationship. Reporters also like stories with exclusivity. 

  • James Brashears @CorporateCode (Corporate Code) says find innovative ways to engage the community, and most importantly do not sell BIG and come up short.

  • Greg Cole @NancysBuckhead (Nancys Buckhead) says pass out business cards and make your presence known to grow your business. Nancys Buckhead is also having a toy drive please support our local business in giving back to community donating a toy or two. You can drop of toys at: Nancy Buckhead - 3167 Peachtree Road NE, Atlanta, GA 30305 - (404) 842-9997

  • Kimberly Walker @KimmyGotSoul (Beauty & Lifestyle Journalist) says have a specialty in what you write, and become an expert in what you do. Always ask yourself what can you do to grow your business. 

A very special thank you to the panelist for taking time to pass along creative and motivational key points too always remember in business and a heartfelt thank you to Lillie Mae for putting together such an informative PR Power Up workshop series.
