2019 KPC Spring Conference
Making Your Mark: A day of professional development sponsored by Kansas Professional Communicators
This year's annual Kansas Professional Communicators conference is focusing on making an impression and making your mark.
DATE AND TIME
Saturday, March 23, 2019
9 A.M. to 3:15 P.M.
612 West 12th Avenue
Emporia, KS 66801
With the changing landscape of the communications industry, you need to stand out in a crowd, whether that's in a job interview or among potential clients. This conference will help you learn about current trends, techniques and ways to do that.
During the 9:45-11:15 morning session, June Coleman, director of Career Services at Emporia State University, will share online interviewing tools as well as trends in resumes and cover letters and how to use your LinkedIn profile to expand your business clientele or find your next job.
In the afternoon session, from 1:45-3:15, Julie Cortes, an award-winning freelance advertising/marketing copywriter and proofreader from Kansas City, will dive into the must-haves for a digital portfolio (and how wordsmiths can create a digital portfolio), how to promote your work to attract ideal clients, and social media tricks that deliver great results. Cortes is the founder of the KC Freelance Exchange.
Bring your own laptops and tablets to join in both sessions and learn as you go.
In between the sessions and during the KPC awards luncheon, winners in the KPC communications contest will be announced and the KPC Communicator of Achievement -- the group's highest award -- will be revealed. A short business meeting will precede the lunch.
