Welcome, Scott Milburn


This week’s awesome guest speaker was Scott Milburn! Scott is a Jerry Sloan visiting professional to Ohio University and is currently working as the Communications Director for Ohio’s governor, John Kasich. He has also spent some time in Washington D.C. and was able to give us a great perspective on political PR.

“Don’t do separation, do engagement” The time has come where we must see how important engagement is in order to better interact with our audience

Communicators aren’t necessarily the only people who should be communicating

Thank you so much to Scott for taking the time to come and speak to us! I hope you all enjoyed our weekly Monday meetings and we’ll see you all back in August!
