The end to our first week of the 2014 Scripps Summer Challenge has arrived and we had some great member participation to kick off the first challenge.
Our July month of PR fun started with having our members participate in a Twitter chat and share what they learned from the experience Four members actively engaged in two different Twitter chats early on in the week. Below is a brief description of the ones they participated in.
#MillennialTalk is a weekly Twitter chat on Tuesdays at 8p.m. EST hosted by Millennial spokesperson and brand consultant Chelsea Krost. Each week, there is a professional guest who joins in the chat to discuss topics that are relevant to Millennials. These topics include career tips, finances, health, education, and entrepreneurship. This past week’s chat discussed the importance of a company’s social impact for Millennials. Follow Chelsea on Twitter @ChelseaKrost to join in for the next one!
#PlusItUp was a Twitter Chat hosted by Gatesman + Dave, a full-service Advertising, Public Relations, Design and Digital agency, on July 1st for Social Media Day. The topic was staying relevant in social media. One of our members, Kaija Nealon is interning at the agency in Pittsburgh this summer and helped organized the chat! You can follow the agency on Twitter at @GatesmanDave or reach out to Kaija to talk about how organizing the chat was @kaijaelizabeth.
