Participants in all areas: Entrepreneurs, Non for profit advocates, Lifestyle and health, Tech & Innovations and Education amongst other fields created a vibrant audience eager to share, network and pitch within their questions to seize opportunity. Moderator, Emily Taffel-Cohen (founder and co-owner of Mugsy PR), led the conversation by inquiring the panel about: Biggest pitching pet peeves, Best day and time to pitch, Pitches that have stood out, How do YOU prefer to be pitched What makes the perfect PR package and Pay 2 play vs authentic editorial, and others. This allowed to harvest a few general notions throughout the panel:
- Information must relate to a local concern, involve people, and denote implications to the community.
- Means of communication prevail within social media and email.
- It’s all about relationship building, making sure to review the person, do your homework, throw them a compliment.
