What's PR Got To Do With LinkedIn?
We are so honored to have PR whiz Jeff Barrett on the #LinkedInChat on Tuesday August 6th! Amongst other things, Jeff has been named Business Insider's #1 Social Ad Executive and joins me on Forbes' Top 50 Social Media Power Influencers list. Jeff is a communications executive, columnist and influencer in media. Young, energetic and motivated, he is leading a wave in digital well before his 30th birthday. Even if you don't know his name (Which you should!) you have probably read his work on Mashable and in the Washington Post- as well as many other news channels.
Jeff also appeared on the July cover of Business Review discussing corporate branding. His first project won Best Use of Video In Social Media from PRNewswire beating out large brands like Jeep and the NFL. In addition he hosts, #BareItAll, a weekly Twitter chat for public relations professionals that trends nationally every week.
