Faculty In The Field

At the UCM PR Program, we’re big believers in our faculty spending time out in the field, “doing” professional PR work. This week Dr. Adam Horn is camped out at the media center at the Daytona International Speedway in his role as a public relations rep for several racing organizations. He’s taking lots of photos and we’ll chronicle his trip here and on Twitter, so check us out @ucmprprogram. Bringing this kind of experience back into the classroom is invaluable to our students as we strive for truly Learning To A Greater Degree.

None of my clients have a press conference scheduled this weekend- unless we win. However, there is a full slate of manufacturers, sponsors and teams hosting press conferences over the next three days.
