This past week has been a whirlwind of excitement with both our wonderful Austin and New York offices in town. It has been such a pleasure to meet these phenomenal people who make up the Konnect PR family, both near and far. We’ve chatted on the phone and emailed constantly for months, and now we are all finally at the same place at the same time! As a part of our time together, all new hires joined forces for a training session. While I started as an Intern in March and have been an Assistant since June, I still greatly appreciated having this day dedicated to discussing Konnect’s vision, team, and work procedures. Our mantra at Konnect is “inspiring the discovery of the extraordinary in the every day.” I definitely take this to heart. Konnect Public Relations fosters an amazing (and growing!) team who is committed to producing quality and creative work for our extraordinary clients. Overall, I left our training day feeling inspired and ready to get to work!
Some topics covered in our training were:
- General office protocol
- Client relations
- Media relations
- How to pitch like a pro!
- Working and “werking” events and trade shows
- The amazing work of Konnect Interactive
