I'm delighted to report that I'm going to Australia next month! First stop will be Melbourne, to deliver a conference session and an all-day employee communications workshop at the 2nd Annual Public Relations Summit, organized by Frocomm Australia. At the Summit I'll also be hauling out my Rockin' Ronnie persona and firing up the grill to put on my trademark Communication Cookout for local IABC chapter members (except I'll be grilling pumpkin and lamb instead of asparagus and Alberta beef).
It will be an action-packed week. I'll also be speaking to the students at Deakin University School of Communication Arts. Deakin Lecturer Ross Monaghan is the kind soul who put my book on the reading list of his course, PR Writing and Tactics, and connected me with the good folks at Frocomm.
After Melbourne it's off to Sydney, where I'll be doing a luncheon speech for the local IABC chapter.
I'm so excited! I've never been to Australia but I know it's got lots great communicators, including one of my favorite new media commentators, Lee Hopkins.
Any readers of this blog from Australia?
Anybody planning to come to the conference?
Any advice on where to eat in Melbourne and Sydney?
