Public Relations Social Media Summit

All I can say is, "Wow!" University of Wisconsin-Whitewater held the Public Relations and Social Media Summit yesterday (Oct 14th) and it was awesome. Hundreds of students, professors, and PR practitioners were in attendance to listen to a variety of speakers giving their inputs on the social media world.

The speakers I went to were:

  • Paula Berg from Southwest Airlines
  • Sue Spaight of Meyer & Wallis
  • Colin Hutt from Primum Agency
  • Jessica of Sway
  • Andrew Wintheiser of Lightburn
  • And the panel of Briana Rygg (Independent Consultant), Joyce O'Brien (Laughlin Constable), Abby Gutowski (, and Jeff Carrigan (Big Shoes Network) as pictured below from left to right. Al Krueger (Comet Branding) also spoke at the panel as well.

I gained a lot of insight from these speakers and want to put their words into action (after, of course, I finish my homework)! But, it was a very inspiring day and I'm glad to have participated.
