March President’s message

Show us your Selfie!  

These smiles say it all. At the our most recent PRSA Gulf Coast Lunch & Learn we took a moment take a selfie with fellow attendees and share it on social media. In the days that followed, there was a flurry of activity. Every post that popped up made me smile. They reminded me of one of my favorite benefits of PRSA membership – you! Whether it is a time of professional crises or time for celebration, we are a public relations community here to help one another succeed.

As we know, public relations is not always an easy business. Our February speaker, Naples Community Healthcare System CEO Paul Hiltz, spoke openly about rebuilding public trust after a communication crisis. To move NCH forward, he shared his strategy focused on the three C’s – Community, Culture and Collaboration. His candor and professional advice will help each of us in our careers. I was reminded how fortunate we are to have one another to learn from, to lean on and, at times, to share a selfie.

Thank you to each of you for helping to grow our PRSA Gulf Coast network.  I look forward to seeing you later this month as our story continues.

Sincerely,

Catherine Bergerson
President
PRSA Gulf Coast Chapter
