“Winning Tips from the Winners”

Tuesday, February 9 Luncheon Panel

Contemporary Communications Insights From Recognized Talent

combo_panel_TCCThe Communicators Club has lined up an astute panel we’re calling our “4 Under-Forty” winners for their unique perspectives on communicating in the here and now. For our Feb. 9 luncheon meeting, we’ll return to The Manor in West Boylston to hear three past Worcester Business Journal “40 Under Forty” Winners and the most recent recipient of The Communicators Club’s Elaine Cencak Memorial Scholarship.
Together, we will consider issues including:

  • Latest social media trends and how to keep up with them
  • Important Central Mass PR opportunities and how they were handled
  • Best channels to communicate across generations and with various “stakeholders”

And, of course, many more. Engage with our panel:
