The first New Pros event of 2021: Getting back in the Game -- Hosted by Past-Chapter President and current Mentorship Chair Norita Taylor, APR and New Pros Chair Adam Burns.

NETWORKING and MENTORSHIP

We encourage all young professionals to join us in a discussion about networking and mentorship. What is networking? How can you keep a conversation going? How can a mentoring relationship benefit your career or as a person? What is the number one most important thing to know when it comes to networking and mentoring? How can you set goals for networking or mentoring? Norita will also share an overview and new outlook of media relations from her 20+ year career and how networking landed a client on “60 Minutes.” Ask her anything! 

This will be an "open" format event meaning we hope attendees will use the live video option and unmute. We think this is more ideal for the topic which is NETWORKING.

We also want your input. Please answering these quick 4 questions: https://kansascity-prsa.org/survey.php?id=19
