STAMFORD, CT - What steps should you take to propel your communications career to the next level? Do you have what it takes to become a Chief Communications Officer? If you’re interested in either of these answers, join the Fairfield County Public Relations Association on Wednesday, September 21 for a breakfast panel discussion featuring executives with decades of experience in recruiting and developing communications talent.

Distinguished speakers will include: George H. Jamison, who leads Spencer Stuart’s corporate communications and investor relations business; Tammy K. Jersey, president and founder of TKJ Associates, a firm that specializes in placing senior functional leaders; Marian Hogan, associate with Heyman Associates; and Donna M. Renella, president of ABW Solutions, a recruitment and consulting firm. The panel will be moderated by Shazzia Khan, chief talent officer for Havas Health and Euro RSCG Worldwide PR.

The panel will provide the latest insights on:

· The state of the current job market in communications and where it’s headed;

· What skills and qualities hiring managers like to see; and

· Which career experiences are indispensible as you ascend toward the Chief Communications Office role.

Join these panelists and the Fairfield County Public Relations Association on Wednesday, September 21 at Bank Street Events, 65 Bank Street, Stamford. Networking will begin at 7:30 a.m. and the breakfast program runs from 8:00-9:00 a.m. The cost is $35 for member pre-registrants, $45 for non-member pre-registrants, and $50 for all walk-ins.
