Why Hire a Public Relations Consultant?

Why Hire a Public Relations Consultant?

The choice of hiring a public relations consultant or firm is a tough one for many business owners, often because they do not fully understand the value PR brings to the table. To discuss this, Alex welcomes back a special guest to the lounge, Carey Kirkpatrick, Founder and CEO of CKP, an independent, woman-owned, Texas-based integrated communications firm. 

So pull up a chair, please use a coaster, and listen in for ways PR can provide value. Carey and Alex also chat about her advice for PR pros working through this prolonged crisis period.

Learn more about Carey and CKP here. Show notes at Listen to Carey's other episode here or wherever you get your podcasts.
