Local non-profits applaud Loyalist PR community media workshops

More than 100 participants from 40+ non-profit agencies took part in this year’s “Can You Hear Us Now?” community media workshops presented by the Post-Graduate Public Relations students of Loyalist College.

In total, six workshops were presented, ranging in topics from measuring PR success to getting to know Twitter.

Here’s what participants had to say about the workshops:

Well done! The students were knowledgeable, personable, helpful and poised.

The facilitators were excellent speakers.

These workshops were just what our organization needed.

The presenters knew their material well. This led to a clear, persuasive and interesting presentation.

I enjoyed the workshops immensely. Thank you for doing them!

What a great opportunity for non-profits! The length of the sessions fit nicely into my workday.

I appreciate the care and individual attention and support of all the facilitators

I found the students did an excellent job of explaining this workshop. They were great with helping and answering questions.

The time went by so quickly – I learned a lot!

Well-organized speakers, useful data. Plain language teaching appreciated.

Excellent speakers, well-planned and delivered. Great resource sharing!

Wonderful presenters, well-organized and worthwhile.
