PR doesn’t stand for press relations but public relations. Who is your public? One way to build your career is to stand up in front of your public, your audience. But those opportunities are rare.
It takes effort. You start at the bottom and work up. So check out this invitation:
What: 7th International Conference on Design & Emotion
Deadline for Submission: February 15
When: October 4-7
Design & Emotion is a forum held every other year — so it’s not a chance that will come around again in ‘11.
The conference will offer workshops, research paper presentations, design case presentations, and poster presentations.
So don’t sit there in the audience, biting your nails in frustration. See if you can get on the program.
And if it works, then you practice and practice and practice. And practice some more.
