May IPA 12/60 Now Available On Demand! Get to Their Hearts Through Their Mind’s Eye: Leveraging Effective Storytelling For Maximum Impact

A recording of this teleseminar is available here.

Storytelling is the essence of being human. That’s according to international security consultant and retired police Capt. Joseph Robinson. As humans, we think using images which can be evoked with words.

He uses Martin Luther King Jr.’s I Have A Dream speech as an example, as well as the photo of Kim Phuc, the 9-year-old Vietnamese girl running from a napalm attack during the Vietnam War. That image, taken on June 8, 1972, by AP Photographer Nick Ut, prompted worldwide conversation and forced change.

March IPA 12/60 Now Available On Demand! “Get Your Marketing Unstuck and Into Action”

A recording of this teleseminar is available here.

According to presenter Robert Middleton, there are two types of “stuckness” that can keep you from marketing your business:  1.) logistical “stuckness”, when you don’t know the “how to”; and 2.) cognitive “stuckness”, when you know the “how to” but resist taking action.

Through his company, Action Plan Marketing, Robert has worked with thousands of people through individual consulting, workshops, seminars and online programs. He noticed, however, that after coaching clients and equipping them with the same information, some would take action and others would not.

A proprietary tool just for us

In the November 12/60 Teleseminar we learned about a propriety tool built specifically for the public relations practitioner.

IRIS PR Software, a software as a service (SaaS) platform developed by company CEO Aly Saxe, which among other things solves the problem of disjointed record keeping and tracking of media outreach. While working as an agency founder, Aly and her team managed activities in spreadsheets and emails, and found it challenging to measure efforts made on behalf of their clients. Thus the birth of the product.
