For this month’s first AOH session, we’re having a dynamic duo, Nancy Kihenia and Vicky Ncheeri, over to give you a run-through of everything you need to know about public relations! These ladies are the co-founders of Eyeree, a concept generating company that executes events and forums to create life-changing experiences, brands, and people. After putting their professional backgrounds together, you’ll be taken aback by the wealth of experience they’ve gained in all sorts of sectors. They’ve worked in all areas from ICT, to media, telecommunications, and banking, taking care of the marketing and PR of loads of different big firms, most notably Nation Media, Access Kenya, and Cfc Stanbic. One of these impressive ladies alone would be more than enough to tell us all we need to know about how to protect and beautify our company’s image.. with the both of them together however, we know they’re going to pack a very informative punch!
The session will be open to experts in the area as well as those new to it, and here are the topics that will be covered:
// What is PR/Communication? What does it mean for a brand or start up company?
// How can you achieve PR mileage with a limited budget?
// How has PR changed now that social media is so strong? How to use social media to boost your brand
// Crisis PR and how to deal with negative PR
// Using events as a means of communication
// How to stand out
