Jan. 8: When to Hire a PR Firm

The January OCG meeting is Wednesday, January 8, Noon-1:00, at the Association of Washington School Principals. Our guest speaker is Paul Behrendt, senior vice president of Strategies 360, a regional public relations firm headquartered in Seattle (with an office in Olympia).

Paul will speak about when it makes sense to hire a Strategic Positioning and Public Relations firm. Some of the topics he will cover include:

  • Does a comprehensive professional Strategic Positioning, Communications and Public Relations firm make sense for you?
  • When does it make sense to contract with a professional PR firm?
  • When do you consider exporting services that you don’t have the capacity for in-house?
  • Does it makes sense to make a career change to join a large multi-state firm?

We look forward to seeing you on January 8.
