APRIL LUNCHEON:“Using a Well-Defined PR and Marketing Strategy to Help Change Public Perceptions and Meet Challenges Head On

Peter Durkin has been at the helm of Houston’s Planned Parenthood for 20 plus years. In that timeframe, he has witnessed 180 degree changes–in both directions–in the public’s perception of the organization he is charged with running. And during that time, he has employed public relations and marketing strategies to help inform target audiences about the realities and myths, pros and cons, of Planned Parenthood and its mission.

To learn more about the specific reputation management issues he and his team face, and how they have reaped the benefits of utilizing integrated communications campaigns, come to the PRSA Houston monthly luncheon at 11:30 a.m., April 6, at the Courtyard at St. James (1885 St. James Place, between Westheimer and San Felipe).
