Weber Shandwick Promotes Krejci to Executive Vice President, Digital Communications

Weber Shandwick announced the promotion of David Krejci to executive vice president in the Digital Communications practice.
 
Krejci leads the Minneapolis digital communications team to continuously innovate and create new ways to integrate the capabilities of social media into traditional marketing campaigns. He spearheaded the development of FireBell, a social media crisis simulator, which recently earned the PRWeek Innovation of the Year Award, as well as PR News’ Digital Best New Application of the year.
 
Krejci joined Weber Shandwick in 1998 as an intern and has since been instrumental in contributing to the firm’s success. He has planned and executed comprehensive campaigns for a wide range of global clients, private clients and government clients such as the U.S. Army and the 2010 Census. 
 
“Before the words ‘social’ or ’digital communications’ were much used in our industry, David focused his deep intrinsic interest in how emerging communications channels and technologies are transforming the way our clients reach, connect and activate their constituencies,” said Sara Gavin, president of Weber Shandwick’s Minneapolis office. “David drives a spirit of innovation across and throughout not only our Digital Communications team, but across the office and the company.”
 
Krejci is an adjunct professor at the University of Minnesota School of Journalism where he teaches a senior level course on social media. Before joining Weber Shandwick, David was a freelance journalist for City Pages, Skyway News and the beverage industry trade magazine, Proof.  He holds a bachelor’s degree in English from the University of Minnesota.

It's official: Dig Communications, Chicago, renames as Olson

Completing the plan set in place when Minneapolis brand connection agency Olson acquired Dig Communications in late 2010, Olson’s Chicago-based PR discipline today transitions to its new name: Olson.

Dig founder Peter Marino continues his role as president of the Olson public relations discipline.

“Although we’re changing our name to Olson, we’re not changing our approach to business,” says Peter Marino, president, Olson public relations. “Our clients can continue to expect us to deliver energy, ideas and results with the same strong partnership approach. The only thing that changes is our access to deeper resources and capabilities.”

Olson’s public relations discipline serves some of the largest brands in the world, including MillerCoors, Wm. Wrigley Jr. Company, Southwest Airlines, Harley-Davidson, General Mills, Country Inns & Suites By Carlson and PepsiCo, in offices in Minneapolis, Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Milwaukee.

“Olson joined forces with Dig because we are a great match – it’s an incredibly creative, results-focused operation that also believes in the power of social engagement and community building,” says Tom Fugleberg, chief brand officer, Olson. “This change formalizes the way we’ve already been working — now we share the same name. Together we’re excited to be weaving the strands of brand connection into a single, unified fabric. We believe that’s the future.”

Tunheim Launches New Agency Brand And Focus With “Live” Business Cards

Tunheim is launching its new agency identity with a decidedly social and tech twist. The agency’s new logo comes in several forms, one of which is a QR code, a two-dimensional bar code that allows smart phone users to quickly access content on the Internet. The Tunheim branded QR Code is being unveiled on all of the agency’s new business cards.

The Tunheim branded QR code allows anyone with a smart phone to scan the new integrated logo and be immediately linked to timely content, which will be updated regularly.

Integrating the Tunheim logo into a QR code to create a “live business card” was the brainchild of Tunheim’s new creative director, Patrick Milan.

“We wanted to demonstrate that Tunheim has expanded its expertise and creativity to social and online media as well as brand strategy and marketing,” said Milan . “It makes a statement on our calling card, and, of course, offers our clients and prospects the opportunity to link to thought-provoking content.”

The introductory content linked to Tunheim’s live business cards is a video that begins in Tokyo . One of Tunheim’s agency network partners, who is based in Japan , explains that QR codes were created by Toyota in 1994. The video includes appearances from agency founder and CEO Kathy Tunheim and Executive Vice President Blois Olson, and goes on to show how QR codes are being used effectively in marketing and communications campaigns across Asia, Europe and North America .



Milan, who served as a managing partner of Fallon Worldwide’s integrated marketing practice prior to joining Tunheim, says future content will range from highlights of monthly consumer focus groups to agency points of view across such diverse areas as business-to-business marketing, retail consumer issues, public affairs and all areas of branding.

6 lessons from a year of unemployment

This week marks one year of unemployment. I have had the opportunity to have some great conversations this week about unemployment. In all honesty, I really can't believe that I have been unemployed for an entire year. But here I am and I have learned a few lessons I would like to share.

First, fatherhood is awesome. The last year has given me the freedom to stay home with my two kids. While I will admit that there are times where I felt like I wouldn't survive the day, most of the time is was one adventure after the next. I am given one opportunity to be a dad and I intend to make the best of the time I have.

Second, you never know what life will throw at you, so be prepared. Live within your means. If you are new to unemployment let me be the first to tell you--stop spending. Even if you only freeze spending for a couple months. The spending freeze will allow you the freedom to adjust.

Third, even good friends don't always know what to say in a crisis. This is true in any crisis--death of a loved one, break-up, illness or job loss.  If you know someone in the midst of a life transition, don't worry about what to say, just say something. If you are unemployed the important thing is to stay positive. Focus on you and taking care of yourself. Surround yourself with leaders and professionals and positive people.

Fourth, don't just network with the unemployed. Sure it is true that misery loves company, but someone without a job probably won't have a job for you. That said, it can be helpful to trade notes, connections and recruiter names.

Fifth, starting a blog won't get you a job. Part of the reason I started this blog eight years ago was because I never wanted to be in this position. Sometimes I wonder if it wouldn't be easier for me to find a job if I wasn't so visible? While starting my blog hasn't helped me get a job, starting a blog for my wife did end up landing her a gig.

Finally, don't give up. Unemployment is a season. If you are in PR continue to check this blog. I have posted nearly 250 jobs just this year. Be picky. Be intentional. Be patient. Good luck.

This has been a challenging and emotional season for me and my family, but I am grateful for the lessons I have learned. I am thankful for all of you who have offered me support during this difficult time. Looking forward to what the future holds.

The latest research on how to engage your audience and make your message stick

Customer events are critical for a company--whether you're engaging the customer in a large event, small seminar, trade show, webinar or sales presentation. They are an opportunity to convey your messaging and brand, share information, and garner loyalty.

Unfortunately, many of these events and experiences are conducted with little regard for communicating effectively.

When you understand how the brain learns, that knowledge becomes the key to holding an event that is truly effective; from a company, presenter and audience standpoint.

During this engaging and interactive presentation, we'll show you how to strategize and plan your event so that attendees remember more; so that the event truly has an impact.

Along with presenting the latest research on how to improve content comprehension and retention, we’ll review how to completely engage your audience—from the moment they walk into the event, to long after the closing cocktail reception.

The discussion will be led by Dan Yaman, president at LiveSpark

The June BMA-Minnesota event is sponsored by Ergotron.
