When Marketing and PR Collide: Making it Work for You

The lines between marketing and public relations continue to blur. Ninety percent of PR agency professionals and 82% of in-house PR pros predict PR will become more integrated with marketing over the next five years, according to a recent college study. Is this trend a collision course, or a roadmap to success? Sarah Erkmann Ward, APR, president of Blueprint Alaska, will provide her thoughts on how overlap between the two disciplines can improve the performance of an organization or brand.

Who should attend:

  • Marketing and Public Relations professionals who view the other department with suspicion or confusion.
  • Marketing and Public Relations professionals who want to increase their value by learning how to leverage the other discipline’s strengths.

Key takeaways:

  • Working closely together PR and Marketing professionals can improve performance of both departments and the overall organization. 
  • Simple, practical steps to achieve a symbiotic relationship between Marketing and PR departments.
