Does the thought of responding to a reporter make your heart race? Do you know how you would respond to a crisis or negative comment on social media? Working with the media and leveraging your social channels can be a great way to enhance and protect your organization’s reputation if you take a thoughtful approach. To help you shine, the League is hosting a complimentary media training session led by Kerry Francis on May 10, where we will discuss practical strategies to increase success when pitching stories, offer tips to prepare for a media interview, and share suggestions to build and maintain strong relationships with the media.

Currently the Senior Manager of Communications for Columbus Recreation and Parks Department, Kerry has held previous roles with organizations like, the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities, The Ohio State University, JP Morgan Chase, Nationwide and Alliance Data Systems.
