To provide your clients or C-suite the communications counsel they really require, a PR pro must know their client's or organization's business as well as they do. Do you know how the company makes money? Do you know how its rivals do? Do you fully grasp the competitive environment in which your company or client operate? This session will provide communicators at all levels a blueprint on how to become fully versed in your client's or company's business to the point where you become a source of irreplaceable knowledge.

The 2013 PRWeek/Bloom, Gross & Associates Salary Survey revealed a broadly upward trend in terms of salaries in the PR industry. Still, the gap between men and women is wide, certain sectors have median salaries far greater than others, specific geographic regions significantly outpace others, and even the benefits packages vary greatly. This session will help all attendees recognize their true worth to their organizations and, thus, gain a better understanding of whether or not their compensation is in line with what they bring to the table.
