It's been a while since I've hosted my Public Relations Princess Show, since it directly conflicts with my PR Writing class at Drake. But since it's spring break, my friend Brooke Benschoter has graciously allowed me back into the broadcast booth for a day. I've really missed my show.
I have an awesome spring break guest. Craig Olson is the Director of Marketing at GeoLearning. Join me at 4:00 CDT on DesMoinesLocalLive. Once you get to the site, click "watch the full video experience," and log on to the chat. What makes Des Moines Local Live such an interesting format is the chatters asking questions during the show.
Craig Olson has a diverse background in broadcast, public
relations and high tech marketing. He began his career as a reporter for
KSFY-TV, in Sioux Falls South Dakota. For seven years, he worked as video
communications manager in the Office of Public Relations at the University of
Northern Iowa. His interest in high technology took him to Silicon Valley in
1996 where he represented the Sony Broadcast and Professional Group at what was
then the largest high tech public relations agency in the U.S.
Olson worked as Director of Corporate Marketing for TeamQuest in Clear Lake Iowa, before joining GeoLearning in West Des Moines as Marketing Director in July of 2009. He has a B.A. in Journalism from Iowa State University. He is an experienced team builder who is comfortable managing and motivating people while maintaining a sense of humor.(I can attest to the sense of humor!)
See you at 4:00 p.m. this afternoon.
