  • How much PR should you be doing now during the pandemic?  
  • How do you build the story of your business and drive engagement for your brand? 
  • Should I use a publicist?

Many business owners have tons of questions when it comes to PR! Get the answers to these questions and more at our September Ask The Expert virtual session with our experts Heather Taylor Jones and Andrea Simonton, with Chamber Member Mad Hat Maven.
