Pitching Long Island: Who, What, Where, When and Why presented by PRPLI Comments

The region of Long Island, surrounded by water with the boroughs of Queens and Brooklyn to the west, is a unique in its geography, culture, politics, economy and advantages.

From economic development to recreation to education to business and the professions, the people who pitch Long Island are as unique as their surroundings.

Hear what they have to say about their careers, the techniques they employ in their messaging, their roles as spokesperson, and how they manage the strengths and weaknesses of their organizations.

If you live or work on Long Island, this panel discussion presented by the Public Relations Professionals of Long Island will open your eyes to what it takes to market our region. It’s a combination of public relations, sales, communications, and a heavy dose of chutzpa.
