Elyse Hammett, APR
EOS Marketing & Communications, a Phase 3 Media company
There is nothing better than good friends, good food, and a big slice of watermelon in the summer and this is exactly how we celebrated Elyse’s two years as an EOS Goddess.
To show her appreciation for EOS, Elyse invited the goddesses over to her house for a backyard cook out.
With specialty cheeses fresh from the Dekalb Farmer’s Market, including a delicious apricot spread, and of course a glass of wine (or two!) the party began out on Elyse’s outdoor patio. After the sole male of the group, Bob Frost, did the grilling, we enjoyed several good laughs and dined on grilled chicken, asparagus, spring salad and garlic-herb focaccia bread.
For dessert, Elyse served us up the most delicious treat - homemade Angel Food cake topped with sweetened strawberries and a scoop of Blue Bell vanilla ice cream!
The menu made all of our mouth’s water, but it was the good company that made this night so special. At EOS we are more than just colleagues. Spending time together outside the office makes for a FUN night!

The old adage says, “A picture paints a thousand words” – but the question is, does this mean more to us now than before?
Pinterest and Instagram joined the social media domain in 2011 and they both have taken off faster than any other social media platform in the past. Research shows iPhone users upload nearly 4.5 million photos to Instagram each day and Pinterest has more than 12 million users and already outperforms LinkedIn, Google + and Twitter in driving referral traffic to retailers.
It seems visual content is more prevalent than ever – and as a marketing professional, I wonder – are we losing the power of words?
With this trend of image content, rarely do we stop and read an article. If the photo grabs our attention we may read a few lines underneath, but most of us just keep scrolling on to the next visually appealing article.
To engage readers and give the audience what they want, PR and marketing folks need to use this trend to their advantage and integrate photos and videos into press releases, blog posts and other marketing efforts and strategically curate the images to maximize readership.
That’s why in a recent campaign launch for our client MillBridge, EOS featured actual photos and videos of residents in the community’s website. We focused on using less copy and more visual content to really reach our audience and have them stop and spend time on the website.
Images make for a useful tool in supporting our content and really grabbing our reader’s attention – but there is no denying it’s in the actual wording where the argument and the core of what we are saying lives.
Pictures may mean more than ever now and Pinterest and Instagram may have changed the way we view and engage with online content, but in my opinion, it’s our words that will always be the most critical element in creating useful and relevant content.
Now I encourage you to weigh in– words or pictures? Where do you think the future lies for sharing content and spreading messages?]]>
So, as we pass Mother’s Day, let’s consider those little sayings moms share that help us look at the world through different prisms. Experience is, after all, the ultimate wealth.
The road will rise to meet you, no matter your circumstance, if you remember that in this world you may be one person, but to one person you may be the world.]]>
We recently shared news that our client, Turknett Leadership Group, had begun accepting nominations for the 8th annual Leadership Character Awards. The Awards recognize Atlanta leaders who exemplify the highest standards of character and integrity.
It made me explore what other qualities a good leader possesses. Here are a few:
There is still time to nominate someone for the Leadership Character Awards. Visit www.leadershipcharacter.com to learn more.]]>
On March 3, 2012, our client Gigi’s Playhouse, held its second gala at the Ritz Carlton Atlanta to raise funds for its Midtown Down syndrome therapy center. Thanks, in part, to media coverage on WAGA FOX-5, WSB, WFSH-FM WNIV-AM, and in the AJC and Neighbor Newspapers, the sold-out event raised $220,000. Even Mayor Reed made a special video appearance.
The net? More children with T21 (Down’s new name) will benefit from Gigi’s. The 25 free literacy programs, muscle toning exercises, physical, occupational, and speech therapies, family support and social events provide children born with T21 opportunities for a productive life.
