Between what research data tells us about an audience and its eventual decision, communicators are crafting the content that becomes the storytelling which influences behavior.

As public relations professionals, our role as storytellers today takes place in multiple channels through a variety of tools. With a crowded and noisy marketplace, we need strong, strategic content to reach and influence our audience.

Join us for an FPRA Capital Chapter breakfast meeting on September 15 for a panel discussion with leading professionals in consumer and content marketing, including veteran news editors and reporters who now apply their journalistic skills to create and shape rich content. Hear how digital influencers and content strategy thinkers make a difference for their clients through research informed content. During our panel discussion, you will learn how content can fit into your communication plans, what best practices should apply in brand journalism, and more.
