Professional Business Networking Group Meetup


All of us would like
to take our Rotary PR game to the next level. And who better to help us do that than a media insider?

Former Emmy Award winning TV reporter Jeff Crilley will share the secrets to getting good news stories that even many seasoned PR pros don't know.

Jeff believes in combining learning with laughter. His charismatic speaking style lends itself perfectly to this fun, interactive, information-packed talk. Takeaways include:

  • How to come up with stories the media will love
  • The best and worst times for news coverage
  • How to keep your press releases from getting thrown away
  • How to become the "expert" in your field the media will call for a quote
  • How to keep reporters coming back for more

    Jeff is a shining light in the world of PR. It was an honor to hear him speak today about something that touches us all. In your business, if you make it about passion and purpose - the profits will come. If you focus on profits alone, you miss it all.
