As an Emmy award-winning journalist, Kimberley Kennedy is one of Atlanta’s media darlings, and a wise and inspiring addition to the EOS’ team. As our media and communications coach, she leverages 25 years in the Atlanta market serving WSB, WXIA, and CNN, where she told stories that created indelible impressions for captivated audiences across the Southeast.
This experience in front of the camera and podium, coupled with Elyse Hammett’s 20 years of award-winning PR work, is just what we needed to launch EMPOWER, our unique and comprehensive, hands-on communications and media training program.
So, if you want to shine for a new business pitch, a press conference, a speech to your employee team, a media relations campaign or a YouTube video series, EMPOWER is your answer.
With more and more people turning to social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter to join in the conversation about relevant news worldwide, it is crucial to stay ahead of the 24 x 7 media relations curve for 2012.
What will it really take to stay ahead? What can you do to drive better results? And which channels really do work best for reaching journalists right now?
Join two of our very own goddesses, media veteran Kimberley Kennedy and PR pro Elyse Hammett, APR for the PRSA GA Chapter monthly seminar on Thursday, January 12th at Maggiano’s Buckhead.
They’ll reveal the results of an exclusive December 2011 social media survey of local journalists, plus share insights into the evolving use of social media in newsrooms - not only will you gain insight into which channels to use for your pitches, but you will also learn how to prioritize your social media time and budget in 2012!

At EOS, it’s all about a new day, a fresh perspective. And for Elyse, that’s in her DNA. That is why she was the perfect choice to lead our PR practice group and join us as Executive VP. She’s intrinsically passionate about the clients she serves and the relationships she builds on their behalf.
With 20 years of public relations, brand management and marketing communications experience serving clients such as BellSouth, Centex, Emory Healthcare, HD Supply and Troutman Sanders, Elyse’s positive roll-up-your-sleeves attitude has won both accolades from Fortune 500 C-level executives to awards from the American Hospital Marketing Association, Public Relations Society of America, Computerworld, CIO Magazine and the National Telecom Marketing Association. In fact, she’s already making a mark with EOS clients like MODA, WaterWays Township, Reynolds, Minerva and Tombow.
She is a frequent guest lecturer at her alma mater, Emory University. Her commitment to her public relations vocation leaves an indelible impression, especially amongst the 60 peers she’s coached by serving as the Public Relations Society of America’s co-chair for its universal certification training program (APR). You can read more about our goddess on our website, but suffice it to say that we know you’ll find her southern charm as irresistible as we do.
