More so than ever before, the perception and comprehension of public relations are suffering. At the same time, public relations is more vital than ever before, given the explosion of consumer engagement through new and social media, the collapse of reputation and trust in major institutions, and the evolving needs and concerns of corporate CEOs. To foster more accurate and better-informed internal and external perceptions of public relations’ roles, outcomes and value, PRSA is spearheading “The Business Case for Public Relations™,” an industry advocacy campaign aimed at changing attitudes and driving industry acceptance and growth.
Rita Tateel, founder and president, The Celebrity Source, Inc., discusses her PRSA 2009 International Conference presentation, “Celebrities as Brands: How to Work With Celebrities and Talent; Where Celebrity Media and Culture Is Headed in 2010.” Rachel McAllister, president, MPRM; Lynda Dorf, vice president, corporate communications, Dick Clark Productions; and Jessica Herndon, writer-reporter, People, will join Rita as speakers in this presentation.
Exploring some of the points to be covered in their Business Case for Public Relations™ Conference session, principals of Lewton, Seekins & Trester, Kathy Lewton, APR, Fellow PRSA, and Steve Seekins, APR, Fellow PRSA, discuss “When a Recession Hits, Reputation Matters More Than Ever.”

How should you use it? That’s up to you, but here are a few ideas:
- Play it at a staff meeting.
- Use it as programming for your PRSA Chapter meeting.
- Show it to your college class.
- Rent a local theater and invite your clients and prospects.
