While this generation can be broadly defined, it often encompasses those born between the years of 1997 and 2012. This would make the oldest members of the population around 26-years-old.

What PR Pros Can Learn from Halloween

Every year, as the days grow shorter, cold winds blow in from the north, and the barrier between our world and the world of ghosts and ghouls becomes thin, people don masks and disguises to evade the malevolent spirits that emerge to haunt the realms of the living. That’s how the old story goes anyways. Even if it isn’t actually true, its legacy endures, as people still love dressing up for Halloween. For most people, it’s the one chance a year to dress up in costume and assume a persona different from their own.

Come on, Barbie, Let’s Go Save The Economy!

In the ever-evolving landscape of strategic communications, one powerful trend has emerged for businesses seeking to connect with their target audience: women-centered marketing. The interplay of targeted communications and authentic engagement has proven to be a transformative force, not only in propelling brands to the forefront but also in bolstering local economies.

The question is, though: how can you best prepare and make the most of it?

It’s Drafting Season and PR is Your Next Move

Just a few short weeks ago, Victor Wenbanyama got his spot as the first pick in the 2023 NBA draft. As the celebrations are winding down and the 7’4” Frenchman is enjoying the last bits of his offseason before he makes the big move to San Antonio, he is most likely preparing for a new routine, new culture and a new place to call home for the next few years. Same thing for other athletes like Lionel Messi and Karim Benzema, they’re making a big change and uprooting their lives to continue to pursue their dreams.

In spite of what feels like a slowdown in funding, as of 2023 the fintech sector is valued at nearly $179 billion worldwide. For early-stage fintechs attempting to break into the marketplace, it's critical to ensure that companies are aware of who they are, whether their solutions can help, and if they are trustworthy.
