SE2/City of Loveland Media Training Open to the Public
From SE2’s blog:
We do a lot of media trainings, but most aren’t open to the public. An exception is Wednesday, Dec. 9, when I’ll be presenting at a training hosted by the City of Loveland. The city has opened up registration, which costs only $25. I’m excited to participate with James D. Cope, who will be speaking specifically on crisis communications. Cope knows his subject; he handled media relations around the Tylenol murders in 1982.
