    January 26, 2014 by Kathryn Kuttis

    towerEach year salary surveys name investor relations as the highest paid form of public relations. As a result, it is often cited as the most important sub-speciality of PR and the obvious finance nerd in the family.

    Well, one reason is that many people think they can’t do it.

    This is my dog Howard. Hi “Howie.”

    His steady gaze is meant to both encourage and prompt students in my J452 class to start blogging in response to the kernels listed below. To find out more about our blogging assignment click here.

  3. Lost on the Internet

After 10 years as a public relations executive working with industry titans and media legends in New York, I moved to Oregon to find my creative edge in environmental design. I use my strengths as a communicator to solve complex problems with words and images. As an instructor, I share my experience with corporate communications, financial media relations, investor relations and visual design to engage and energize my students as they build their knowledge of public relations. Teaching allows me to grow my professional knowledge and use it to help students connect with the industry.

If you share an interest in public relations, media and visual design, this might be a good place for you to hang out. I started this blog to exchange ideas with my students at the University of Oregon. They keep me (and maybe you too) at the forefront of social media, visual communication and career development. Here you'll find our best ideas, links and learning as we write, create and blog our way through a course on Strategic PR Communication.
