PR Connection #5

So this week, I was at a complete loss of what to blog about for a PR Connection. I started looking on PR Week’s website to see if anything particular stuck out to me. Then I came across the Young PR Professional of the Year 2010, Megan Parker from General Electric. How awesome of a title is that?! When I came across this article I was only thinking “WOW, good for her!”. I think that this is something we can all, as PR majors, dream to achieve one day.

Let me tell you a little bit about Megan Parker. She helped guide GE’s social media engagement with online financial communities and the public during one of the toughest years for communicators. She is a communication specialist and over the social media for General Electric. She began General Electric’s corporate blog and twitter. Here is the link to General Electric’s twitter …

I think that as a PR major it is good for me to keep up with the “big names” in Public Relations and the news that surrounds them, especially when it is positive, motivating news! There were many other awards presented like the PRWeek Campaign of the Year, PR Agency of the Year, the PR Professional of the Year and many more. But I thought that the Young PR Professional of the Year would be the most interesting to us, since we are young and in college!

This is the link to the website about Megan Parker …

    That is so cool Shelley! I think you picked a perfect PR connection topic. I am almost kind of jealous! hahaha. And it makes it even better that she actually commented on your post. It is kind of cool how all of us PR people can connect this way!
    As for the actual award that Megan won, I think it is great! The actors have the Oscars, the musicians have the Grammy’s, now we have ours! I like it so much because it gives us something to work towards. It would be a dream come true if I would win it one day. I bet you feel the same way!

    p.s. I hope conflict and communication is going well for you!
