February Event: Improvise: Crucial Skills for Your Success

Join the PRSA Cincinnati Chapter for a fun and informative lunch program on Tuesday, February 17 at the Newport Syndicate featuring guest speaker Fred Cook, CEO of the award-winning public relations agency Golin, and author of Improvise: Unconventional Career Advice from an Unlikely CEO.

Cook and his team have worked with some of the world's most well-known business leaders and brands, including Steve Jobs (Apple), Jeff Bezos (Amazon.com), Michael Eisner (Disney), as well as Nintendo and Southwest Airlines. Golin, with more than 50 locations worldwide, continues to be recognized for their outstanding work and positive results, having garnered 65 awards for work on behalf of clients, 11 major agency awards, and 7 awards for being a 'best place to work'.

Cook's book, Improvise: Unconventional Career Advice from an Unlikely CEO, has been featured on Forbes.com, The Huffington Post, Fast Company, and LinkedIn, and offers helpful career advice to professionals that will help set them apart from the pack.

About Fred Cook 
Before joining the corporate ranks at the age of 36, he talked his way into a job as a cabin boy on a Norwegian tanker; peddled fake Italian leather goods to unsuspecting tourists, ran a rock-and- roll record company, started a service chauffeuring drunks home from bars; worked as a doorman at a five-star hotel; substitute-taught in Los Angeles's worst schools; and winged it as a novice tour guide. During his career, he's been ignored, lost, punched, flunked, fired, divorced, and arrested.

Cook shares the wisdom he's accumulated through his unconventional life experiences and provides an eye-opening look at how he found success on his own terms. His story will provide readers with the inspiration and the resolution they need to strike out and forge their own paths rather than sticking to the same well-worn road. 

Join us for this exciting luncheon program, which is sponsored in part by the Newport Syndicate. Attendees will have the opportunity to interact with Cook following his presentation and will also receive a signed copy of his recently released book.
