LeBron James was once my favorite NBA player. That was until July 8 when he announced during his one-hour segment “The Decision” that he would trade in his Cleveland Cavaliers jersey for a Miami Heat uniform. I truly enjoyed watching him play and after all this hoopla, I’m siding with the state of Ohio. Sure, he’s a great player, but attitude and arrogance is a major turn off. One ESPN reporter even stated, “All basketball players are arrogant, but he made the… Continue

While I probably shouldn’t admit this publically, I’m a big fan of the soap, The Young and the Restless. Everyone has a guilty pleasure and for me, the characters and drama that unravel in Genoa City is mine. Continue
Last week, one of the episodes showed a scene where executives from Chancellor Industries, a well-known company, are working on a biofuels project and are preparing for an important presentation when the topic of public relations arises. They are…

Last Friday, I had the good fortune to be a fly on the wall during a round table with a handful of local HR and legal professionals who are considered to be among the best in their field. The topic was timely as all of them focused on issues of the day, including retention, training and recruiting.
While I thoroughly enjoyed their insights, I must disagree with one point that most of them seemed to agreed upon - that you can't ask… Continue

Right now, all eyes are on the Chilean miners and inevitably their $450 Radar model Oakley sunglasses. A simple internet search reveals they were donated by the company days ago to protect the miners' eyes from sunlight after the rescue. Interesting move to associate the Oakley brand with nothing short of a miracle that all of us will forever remember.
Do you find Oakley's charitable act savvy or… Continue

I came across a great article by Cece Salomon-Lee Would you trust a PR firm without social media presence with your social media programs?
and if I put myself in the shoes of a customer, the answer would be a big, fat NO. How can an agency take on the task of handling and monitoring a Facebook and Twitter… Continue

Whatever the industry, I think we should encourage clients to tweet something timely such as a "deal of the day" or a new offering to spark interest. I like how hot spots Cucina Urbana @CucinaUrbana and Starlite @StarliteSD go about that:…

This past week I attended a PRSA event and had a chance to catch up with some of my good friends in the industry. One of them revealed that they accepted a new PR position that allowed them to work with a previous boss and they were elated about the opportunity. While we were talking about things regarding their transition, portfolios became the topic of conversation. Surely we are all proud of our accomplishments, but often forget to request an extra copy of a magazine or newspaper that we… Continue
