TORONTO, Feb. 14, 2013 /CNW/ - The PR landscape is undergoing
unparalleled change, and young professionals need to be on top of their
game to lead the way forward. That's why the Canadian Council of
Public Relations Firms (CCPRF), in partnership with the Canadian Public
Relations Society (CPRS), is hosting a third annual Boot Camp - a full
day of learning, discussion, networking and exciting forward-thinking
speakers for agency communicators on Friday, March 1 in Toronto.
"It's important to provide young PR professionals with opportunities to
hear from leading experts and expand their minds during a time of
change in our industry," said David Gordon, Chair of the CCPRF. "With
an outstanding keynote address and nine professional development
sessions, we are giving budding practitioners a rich experience that
will inspire them and unlock new ways of thinking."
A highlight of the Boot Camp is keynote speaker, Jeremy Gutsche. Gutsche is founder of the world's leading trend-spotting website, Trendhunter.com, which highlights what's new in the marketing, design and technology
fields. With his familiarity in corporate strategy and Web 2.0, he
authored the award-winning book, Exploiting Chaos. Gutsche will speak about creating innovative ideas, stimulating
creativity and unlocking potential in business during times of change.
Other topics include personal branding, strategic thinking, building
relationships and social media. Sessions will be led by the
owners/operators of Canada's top PR firms, as well as outside experts,
including bloggers and marketers.
