What's Next 

It's Not What You Said, It's How You Said It

Getting your ideas across means knowing what to say and how to say it. But rather than getting muddled in the message, learn how to "think like a speechwriter" and fashion a message that an audience wants to hear. Drawing on her years as a ghostwriter and public speaking teacher, Greta's presentation offers you a practical toolbox that can help you to create messaging that can persuade, motivate, and WOW! your audience.

The Greater Kansas City PRSA chapter is a community of public relations and communications professionals across the Kansas City area, from recent college graduates to leaders of some of the largest firms, agencies and non-profits. Our members represent nearly every practice area and professional and academic setting within the public relations field.

In addition, we support students from across the Midwest who are members of their campus Public Relations Student Society of America chapters.

We currently have more than 200 members and hold regular professional development luncheons to enhance our professional growth. Our chapter also boasts signature events, such as our annual PRISM Awards gala honoring the year’s best in communications excellence and our full-day, interactive student event, our PRSSA Summit. At GKC-PRSA our mission is to be the professional resource and advocate for Kansas City’s PR and Communications community.
