Sandy Hillman took a vision and turned it into one of Baltimore’s premier public relations agencies – all during what would be considered a risky economic environment.
Quite a few staff and a number of clients followed her.
Understandable since she spent time listening to them, working with them, advocating for them.
We asked Sandy to kick-off this conference for precisely that reason – no matter what’s happening around us, she puts relationships first. As we all grapple with the “new media” and the “new tools”, we have to remember to go back to start. Start is that place where we put relations into PR.
I know that Sandy’s keynote will help us all focus on how to create those relationships – and how to ride the new economy and new landscape at the same time.
