Pitching 101 — Media Relations

This week’s guest is Pal Hollywood from The Hoffman Agency! Pal has spent the last two years supporting media relations for Nokia Networks and Chinese search-engine giant Baidu’s Facemoji Keyboard, dabbling in both the consumer and B2B side of telecommunications. Pal loves writing, video editing and public speaking. When not applying those skills at work, she spends her time winning playwriting and video editing contests, recording a “Star Trek” podcast and screenwriting.


This week, PRSSA will be learning how to pitch and practice media relations! Those attending are encouraged to bring their laptops to get the most out of this week’s activity.
