MIAMI—Public relations professionals will have the chance to learn from experts in a variety of disciplines—from Olympic athletes to NGO executives to professionals in data and analytics—at the third Global Public Relations Summit, which takes place at the St Regis Bal Harbor in Miami over four days next week.
Recent additions to the Summit lineup include:
• Former Olympic hockey player Darius Kasparitis and Natalia Klark of the Russian Olympic Committee, who will discuss the marketing benefits—and challenges—of the Olympic Games, underwritten by SPN Communications;
• Elizabeth Nyamayaro, senior advisor to the under-secretary-general and executive director of UN Women, and designer, animator and art director Ken Tanabe, founder of Loving Day, who will take part in a panel on How To Start a Mass Movement moderated by Ogilvy Public Relations chair Christopher Graves;
• Olivia Herron, VP of brand strategy for visual analytics platform Curalate, and Jeff Pyatt of content discovery platform Outbrain, who will discuss The Hidden Power of Earned on a panel sponsored by Marina Maher Communications.
“One of the things that sets the Global Public Relations Summit apart is that this is not just an event for PR people to talk to each other,” says Paul Holmes, editor of The Holmes Report. “It’s an event that includes an eclectic assortment of experts from other fields who have interesting and unexpected lessons to teach PR professionals.”
