On September 17, Kelly Short, IABC board member and director of global communications for Interactions Marketing will discuss how her organization has created a publication that captures the attention of a diverse workforce, delivers real ROI, and positions it for valuable PR opportunities.

Join us September 17  from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. (PDT) to hear from Kelly Short as she discusses how her organization has created Retail News Insider.

The monthly publication, Retail News Insider, won a Gold Quill award this year and has demonstrated value both internally to associates and executives, as well as externally to retail partners and media.

  • Providing information and resources regarding best practices, industry trends and key issues affecting associates and retail partners
  • Helping associates understand how their work at the local level has a direct impact on the company’s growth and success
  • Increasing associate engagement through a unified message
  • Creating a tool that simultaneously achieves all of the above internal communications goals while establishing Interactions executives as industry experts
  • Becoming a resource to educate current partners, including many of the world’s top retailers and CPG manufacturers
