How to Connect with Chicago’s Top Business Journalists

February 13


With so many companies to cover across the Chicagoland area, what can a public relations professional do to get the attention of Chicago business writers and editors? These business journalists will share their views on how public relations professionals can better work with them, how to build a successful pitch, and what role the changes in the economy, technology, and public policy may play in the business stories the media covers in 2019 and beyond. Come with questions for our panelists, and have the opportunity to meet them after the panel discussion.
