The next development meeting organized by the Spokane Regional Marketing and Communications Association features powerhouse media figure Shawne Duperon.
The association, which goes by Spokane MarCom, for short, will host Duperon, a six-time Emmy Award broadcaster and media lecturer. She will discuss working with the media more effectively.
The event runs from 7 to 11 a.m. Feb. 1 at the Lincoln Center, 1316 N. Lincoln St. It includes breakfast. To register or get more details, visit www.SpokaneMarCom.org. (Rates are lower for members and for students.)
Her bio at ShawneTV.com, notes she is an expert speaker who travels widely to address businesses and media professionals and discuss how communication affects attitudes and outcomes.
The MarCom announcement said Duperon will focus on:
- Interview techniques that have you and the reporter looking exquisite. (Really, that's what it says.)
- How to not sound like a commercial and have editors run screaming the other way,
- How to handle any hostile questions.
