SJSU’s PR Day 2013 (Back to the Future for PR)

I went back to San Jose State University to speak to the PR students at the recent PR Day 2013 and the future looks good!  All those young, bright, energetic PR students were very encouraging to see!  And, as a PR alum from San Jose State University, there is nothing I’d like better than to see all those students succeed in technology PR.

PR Day 2013 gave the students a head start in that regard with advice and tips from PR professionals, yours truly included.

One talented student, Zack Toberman, filmed PR Day 2013. Congrats to Zack who did a terrific job!

The video also pays homage to Dwight Bentel, the founder of SJSU’s Journalism and Mass Communications Department and it recognizes Dr. Dennis Wilcox–renowned teacher, textbook author, and speaker–for putting SJSU’s PR program on the map. (Many of us SJSU alums feared his case studies class!)

Thank you to Chris DiSalvo, professor at SJSU, for inviting me to participate in PR Day and all the students in her event planning class who participated in the day. And, thanks to my fellow technology PR panelists–Kelly Maxwell, Gerry Corbett and Jeff Lettes.
