If you saw the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show from 2006 to 2014, there’s a good chance you experienced first-hand the work of brand manager/PR master Lauren Cutillo Kinnear. She’s since departed the megabrand, but has by no means slowed down. After departing in 2014, Lauren launched her own public relations and event management consultancy called LOLO PR & Events. Lauren was kind enough to indulge me in a Q&A chat about career successes, advice for PR pros, and the challenges of striking out on your own.
The City of Brotherly Love knows it has a reputation. As the 2017 NFL Draft arrives at the Ben Franklin Parkway, Philly fans also know they have some amends to make. And they’re sorry, kinda. Enter possibly the greatest tongue-in-cheek humor marketing campaign of the decade, “Welcome Kinda“. From apologies for running over an opposing team’s corn hole game (oops!) to “accidentally” spilling drinks on fans from other teams (our bad, really!), Welcome Kinda embraces and exemplifies the fervor and ferocity that Philly fans exude.
If combining PR with Hawaii living sounds like a dream, this post is for you! I recently chatted with with former Central PA native turned Hawaii resident Kait Hanson, of CommuniKait. She has been featured in outlets such as POPSUGAR, The Today Show, and Style Me Pretty, and talks about the challenges of freelancing, advice for bloggers, and the best part of living in Hawaii . She also has the cutest chocolate labs on the islands in my opinion.
