When you organize an event around the most powerful man in the world, a few things are different. Like having your personal phone conversations tapped, for example. And there’s more – much more. Melanie Forbrick, APR, Vice President of Communications at Siemens Energy, will share lessons learned from hosting the President of the United States, including fun stories and behind-the-scenes insights from her once-in-a-lifetime experience.
You’ll also learn Melanie’s tips for working with high-profile visitors, such as:
· How to pitch your location or event for the visit
· Helping speech writers with messages, not just facts
· Branding the location for photos and media
· Engaging online audiences through blogging and repurposing video feeds and photos
