Leverage the Power of PR to Support Your Nonprofit!

Speaker: Kevin Bakewell, Principal of Bakewell Public Relations, LLC

The motivation for this presentation stems from the passion I developed for working with and funding/supporting nonprofits during my 45-year corporate career. The content is informed by decades of experience in the areas of public relations, strategic communication (internal and external), nonprofit board governance, research and corporate social responsibility. My hope is that attendees would leave with

• a greater appreciation for the value of public relations and strategic communication in supporting their objectives

• a strong desire to ensure that public relations is a key component in their strategic plans

• practical advice and tips that can be immediately considered and implemented, where appropriate

In addition, I will provide a physical takeaway (print and digital), yet to be developed but this could be something like an outline for conducting a high-level assessment of your nonprofit’s public relations/communication readiness, a template for dealing with a potential communication crisis, etc.
