Can You Keep A Secret?

In Events on March 12, 2012 at 10:26 pm

What if it is hush-hush news about the most popular couple in the world and is so big, it has international implications? That was the challenge four local public relations professionals faced last year leading up to the University of Calgary Royal Visit featuring newlyweds “Will and Kate”.  This Thursday, join Colleen Killingsworth MCM, APR, ABC, FCPRS, Susan Mide Kiss, Lisa Rushka APR and Bonnie Elgie APR as they share a behind-the-scenes look at one of the biggest events in the university’s – and the city of Calgary’s – history!

While it was a media relations dream, there were also many challenges with logistics, protocol, approvals and more. Find out about all that goes into hosting a Royal Visit and what it meant to the University of Calgary in the moment, as well as the implications for today and in the future. This dynamic team will reveal the code name for the communications operation, the details behind what Will and Kate saw and how the Royal Visit is still impacting the university today.

Register today and join us for lunch this Thursday, March 15th. Networking starts at 11:15, lunch is served at 11:45 and the presentation begins at 12:05.
