PRSA visits Richards Partners
July 03, 2012
Earlier this year, The Richards Group was honored with the opportunity to host some very special guests from the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA). Members of the PRSA's National Board of Directors came from all around the nation to Dallas for the annual PRSA strategic planning meeting. We were thrilled to have so many sharp, accomplished and just plain kind industry peers in our agency walls.
In Richards Group spirit, we surprised our guests with a stairwell meeting (a hallmark of our agency that involves 650 people in a four-story open stairwell) and challenged them to a fun game of "Guess the Real PR Disaster." True crisis communications pros, our guests knew the actual PR fiasco and were great sports. Stan Richards, our founder and president, then took everyone on a walking tour to explain and showcase our workplace culture.
And clearly, the experience left a lasting impression. Kirk Hazlett, APR, Fellow PRSA, said it well: "I thoroughly enjoyed having a chance to meet The Richards Group … if I were a few centuries younger, I would be on the front steps, begging to be allowed to work with you!"
Thanks again to all the PRSA leaders who visited us – you're welcome back anytime.
