Message development, social media strategies, and speaker/media training for individuals and groups, so you don't get caught unprepared, speechless or without a message. I'm Washington, DC-based communications consultant Denise Graveline. Want to pick my brain or get a sense of how I work? Do it here.
I'm @dontgetcaught on Twitter and at the end of this week, I'll be catching up with a lot of my tweeps in real life at a conference here in Washington, DC. It's been a packed week for me, with a training for corporate scientists in Chicago, blogging for my business and for clients, and helping yet more clients to plan trainings, recruitment of new communications execs and more.
Now's a great time for me to look back on a week of tweets and share with you the items that caught my eye enough to be shared with my followers. How did your week go? If you're going to be at the AAAS meeting here in DC, please message me so we can connect!
If your audience is rural, it may be struggling for Internet access. A New York Times story does a great job detailing what that experience is like in a couple of Alabama towns. My charitable PR idea for the week: Companies, universities and nonprofits should unlock their wi-fi signals in places like this, just as the Thomasville, Ala., library does.
EPA gets local-mapped on the home page: I directed public affairs at EPA just as the web was emerging, so I'm always proud to share the agency's new online directions. Now, EPA has a map on its home page titled "Info Where You Live," at once a great navigation too for citizens as well as a cool geolocal tool.
