Ready life? ‘Cause here I come

Paige Kenny, LCI Intern, here… I’ll be permanently signing off shortly as my internship at LCI has come to an end. Last Friday, when I celebrated my 23rd birthday, I was thinking about the ways in which I would like to change my life over the next year, making it the best year ever.  I am amazed at the choices…

Going Global. . .

David Landis, trusty LCI President here with my thoughts for the week.   I just returned from meeting with our international PR affiliates (through the Public Relations Global Network – wwwprgn.com) in Sao Paulo.  The 17-hour plane trip notwithstanding, it occurred to me that the world continues to shrink and that business is going global.  Those PR professionals who can…

Guilt-Free Travel?

Alicia Balkrishna here with some musings on beating travel guilt. . . ‘We need a vacation,’ my boyfriend declared. ‘Preferrably somewhere tropical.’ My heart raced.  While I’m normally a fan of far-flung travel, market forces are a funny thing.  The experts (Mom, included) are telling us to save, save, save during the recession.  Splurge on a getaway?  I listened to…

When going green has gone too far

Jessica Lee, LCI account coordinator here.   In third grade, my class did a play about Earth Day. I was assigned the unfortunate role of playing Mother Earth. I stood on stage with my head  poking through a large blue sheet painted with the seven continents as my classmates walked by and hurled (empty) bottles, paper and other trash at…

Think Your Company Needs A Facelift? Not So Fast!

  Lee Kravetz, Senior Account Supervisor, Landis Communications Inc here, and like most Americans, I’ve been captivated the news these past few weeks… as well as by some of the most public, and interesting, PR maneuvers I’ve ever seen.  This month, AIG received government bailout money and then turned around and gave its top employees millions in bonuses.  In the…

The world is all a-Twitter!

Heather Platisha, LCI account executive, and yes, I use Twitter. Truth be told, when I first came to use Twitter it, was purely for the occasional entertainment. I found celebrities, gossip blogs and friends to follow. At the same time, I started hearing that more and more journalists are using Twitter as a source for building stories and I began…

You’ll Never Walk Alone

Marsha Robertson checking in…   I’ve been working from my house a lot these days and as thrilling as it can be to wear bedroom slippers all morning, I started to worry that prolonged time in a quiet home office would slowly drive me crazy – wall me in as a prisoner of solitude.   But it’s 2009 and I’ve…

Everything is going to be okay, just smile (seriously)

Paige Kenny, intern at LCI, here. The recession has made everyone so serious. We’re losing our savings, our jobs, OUR MINDS– serious, serious, serious. How could anyone stay happy in a time like this? I remember doing a report in college where I referred to a quote by Abraham Lincoln: “Most people are only so happy as they make themselves…

AP Stands for Absolutely Perfect!

Hello there!  It’s Kelly, LCI’s faithful Senior Account Executive.  Remember back to the days in elementary school when our English teachers would harp and harp and harp on grammar? And all we could think about is “why does this even matter!??!”  (Side note: the nuns used to make me stand at the back of the classroom all English period because…

Getting beyond the rough patches. . .

David Landis, trusty LCI President here. Technology is a god-send, right?  Think of the efficiencies it’s brought to our respective businesses – how we’re able to source and sort information, communicate quickly, get timely answers and more – all with the simple click of a mouse. And yet, I’m constantly reminded that technology can never replace the core of business…
