This Week’s Speaker Spotlight:
Known as "The Philanthropic Publicist", Vail’s humanitarian efforts have been the focus of her public relations career where she provides pro-bono services to assist nonprofits and special interest groups. Vail upholds a company mandate requiring clients to support nonprofit activities through whatever means they can provide. To achieve that end, she becomes their philanthropic coach: assessing and optimizing their stewardship potential. International award-winning PR professional, Vail has been honored with the Key to the City of Las Vegas, the PRSA - Paul M Lund Public Service Award and was Knighted Dame of Grace, among other accolades for her philanthropic endeavors. She is the author of “What’s Your Philanthropic Footprint?”
