Sneak Preview of Keynote Speakers:
As chair of the PRSA Western District, Paula Pedene, APR (@PaulaPedene) will be kicking off the day with an interactive keynote on ethics. Paula was one of the first Phoenix VA Whistleblowers and assisted Dr. Sam Foote in exposing the corruption inside the recent VA scandal. She'll share why serving our Veterans is a noble mission despite the current VA challenges. The interactive session will also shine a light on why whistleblowers play a tough but important role and that taking a stand for ethics is important for the entire community.

This year's afternoon keynote features Geno Church (@GenoChurch), Word of Mouth Inspiration Officer at Brains on Fire from South Carolina. Geno will share lessons from the book, The Passion Conversation: Understanding, Sparking and Sustaining Word of Mouth Marketing, exploring how passion compels brands to go above and beyond and inspires customers to talk, share and connect. The new world of marketing is personal. It's not about technology platforms or social media doodads - it's about real relationships, real passion and real people. After all, at the end of the day, we're all in the people business.

Understanding passion provides actionable insights that empower marketers to authentically connect with the people who love their brands. These relationships and conversations lead to sharing because they put people, not the brand, first.

Register Today! Early bird pricing ends Sept. 10 and the first 20 people to register will receive a free copy of Geno Church's book The Passion Conversation!
