Moving at the Speed of Creativity by Wesley Fryer

Great Videos for Public Relations Media Training

Today I attended and helped technologically facilitate a wonderful workshop presented by Karen Wicker. Karen is founder and President of Candor Public Relations in Oklahoma City, and presents workshops for a wide variety of audiences about crisis management, crisis media responses, and developing proactive organizational response plans to unexpected events. I took notes and will be sharing those soon, but tonight I want to share a series of five videos which Karen identified as great for discussions about public relations media responses to different situations. These videos can serve as conversation catalysts about a host of issues, not just PR and media crisis response. Check them out! Follow Candor Public Relations on Twitter at @candorpr.

(I used this one last year with my 6th grade Sunday School class in the context of how important the words we choose to say and write can be.)
