Motivation Monday – Winning

“Winning isn’t everything. But wanting to win is.”  – Vince Lombardi

Let’s begin this Monday with our heads a little higher, our chests held high and a BIG high-five!

Mondays are always tough, but here’s one thing this Monday has over all  any other plain old Monday; Utes won!

Utes won 54-10, remind yourself of that you’ll be sure to survive this Monday! 🙂

Conference Pt 2

After the keynote speaker we had the option of choosing 2 out of 3 various workshops; Creating an Effective Crisis Communications Plan, Social Media Success Stories: How Utah Companies Are Harnessing New Media Power, and How Your Company Can Take Advantage of Utah’s Pro-Business Message. I was really excited to attend the the workshop on Social Media because the panel was amazing group of people. I couldn’t wait to hear them speak and ask questions. For our second choice, I attended the workshop on Crisis Communication. I was thrilled to learn from the talented and experience speaker.

The Social Media Panel gave me plenty ideas to use on the many networks I use both personally and professionally. They stressed the importance of interacting with your fans/followers; listening and responding are key to your branding strategy. Creating a cheap, flip cam video can help get the word out. Utah PRSSA is working on a recruitment video! It was such an incredible experience and the panel was so friendly, we hope to have them join Utah PRSSA for a Q&A Session.
