2012 Women in PR Summit & Retreat Overview

I attended the 2nd Annual Women in PR Summit & Retreat.

My main purpose in going: to learn more about the public relations industry and to network with great professionals already in the industry. I was more interested in the panelists and the different panels more than anything.

There has been a lot of backlash about this event due to scheduled keynote speaker Kelly Cutrone deciding not to come. I had already signed up for this conference before the organization brought Kelly Cutrone on board. Although I was really excited to see her and hear what she had to say, it was NOT my only reason for coming.  Don’t pay money for a full conference if you are interested in only one part.  If that’s the case, try to reach out to that one person you are there to see.

There has been a few people asking me about the entire situation and I’m not sure why because I don’t speak on behalf of any of these two parties.  I would encourage others to continue to follow this story and wait to hear official statements from BOTH parties.  I respect Kelly Cutrone but I also respect and admire Anje Collins for wanting to help others in the industry and I thank her for all that she has done for the organization’s members.

What is your opinion about this situation?  Please respect other people’s comments, you are entitled to your opinion.
