Solo PR People Unite!

Solo PR people seem to be everywhere in Boston, helping companies from a wide variety of areas. Recently I met solos working with green consumer goods companies, restaurants, food service, technology and healthcare companies.

What solos often lack, however, is another trusted person with whom to bounce ideas.

Stealing liberally from the idea of the Boston Open Coffee, I'd like to announce the Solo PR Practitioner Coffee at Taste Coffee House in Newtonville. Starting on July 7, I'll be there every Tuesday morning at 9am, coffee in hand and chatting with the folks who decide to come.

Taste has everything we need: good coffee, free wifi, seats and a friendly staff.

Why 9am? Because many of the people I've met have children and 9am lets us get them off to camp, school or whatever, then have an hour or so to talk.

I don't expect everyone to come every week, but hopefully a few will be there regularly.

Come on down!

Hi Chuck! I'd love to hear what you have to offer to a fresh PR associate. I'll drop by Taste in July and hopefully you can give me some insight. I'm a recent graduate from Champlain College in Burlington, VT with a degree in Public Relations. I'm new to the Boston area (I grew up in the Philadelphia area) as well as the industry. Talk to you soon!

Cindy, hopefully it'll be more than just me and you can get lots of feedback!

Looking forward to meeting you.

I will be in touch and let you know what day I will come in.

Hi Chuck -- I'll be there as often as possible. I've made great contacts through the Open Coffee events (which are more targeted to developers and entrepreneurs) and have been looking for a place to meet up with other PR & Marketing people.
