When I say bittersweet, there is definitely a pun intended. Although our lunch break included delicious macaroons and other sweets from our beloved downtown dessert destination Bottega Louie, it was not without reason. Today is the last day for Gyna, an account coordinator in the Food and Beverage Division here at Konnect PR. We are sad to see her go, but we wanted to celebrate the time she has spent as an LA publicist, and wish her all the best in her future endeavors!
Friday is always a good time to reflect back on the week. Yesterday a few of us ventured to the headquarters of our newest client, Lakeshore Learning Materials to achieve a full understanding of what they do and how they do it. We spoke with many employees in various departments including development, software, and retail, and even received a tour of their out of this world distribution center! With winding conveyer belts and stairways we felt like we were in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory! Sans the chocolate waterfall, unfortunately. Also, some of our LA publicists were sure to make a little note to self: Stilettos and factories are not the best combo.
We wrapped up our day with a tour of their onsite daycare, which really emphasized everything Lakeshore stands for. Quality, safety, and the overall well being of children are of great importance to them, and we can’t wait to work alongside them to even further their success as a company. We are all very excited!
This public relations firm is starting to wind down for the day. I wish everyone a great and safe weekend, it’s supposed to be lovely!
