Pay it forward

Posted by Brian Lee on May 12, 2015 in Personal Note

PRSA asked me to submit a blog post about how I have volunteered in the organization. I immediately thought of the mentoring I provide to students. Here’s my article titled, “Pay It Forward: Working With The Next Generation Of PR Practitioners.”


Happy Thanksgiving!

If you’re traveling this Thanksgiving, here’s to hoping you’re not stuck in an airport: Americans Enjoying Thanksgiving Tradition Of Sitting Around At Airport


Helping minority and female entrepreneurs

Posted by Brian Lee on January 13, 2014 in Personal Note

The Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation (WARF) announced recently that it created a program called UpStart to help aspiring minority and female entrepreneurs gain the skills needed to be successful in business. Today, I was selected to teach a class on creating websites during the 13-week session. It’s truly an honor for me, especially being a […]



When communications professionals get together

Posted by Brian Lee on December 5, 2013 in Doing business, Personal Note, PR and ad industry

In 2008, when I was president of PRSA-Madison and vice-president of Ad 2 Madison, I noticed that we had so many communications groups in town, yet we never got together. That notion is extra odd when you consider in the working world, most communications is integrated, meaning that people in PR, marketing, graphic design, etc., […]



A nice note

Posted by Brian Lee on July 31, 2013 in Personal Note

I meet often with college students, recent graduates and others interested in getting into public relations. My advice includes what skills they need, what to put in their portfolio, how to network and what networking events to attend. Here’s a nice note I received following one such meeting: “Thank you for taking the time to […]


Experiencing SXSW Interactive

Posted by Brian Lee on March 13, 2013 in Doing business, Personal Note

I spent a whirlwind 36 hours at the Interactive portion of South by Southwest, and below is what I learned. But first, no one in Austin says “South by Southwest.” Instead, they say simply, “South By.” Do I need to buy a badge? Depends. If you’re really looking to attend the sessions/keynotes, then yes. However, […]



The soundtrack of my life

Posted by Brian Lee on February 15, 2013 in Personal Note

In my presentation to a Field Experience class at Madison College last week, I told the students that either you’re a person who hopes things happens to you, or you’re a person who seeks out your own opportunities. The latter describes me, and I realized it’s why I like songs that are about living life […]



Two kinds of time travel

Posted by Brian Lee on January 18, 2013 in Personal Note

I thought I’d step away from talking about industry-related topics to discuss time travel. We’ve seen in the movies two kinds. In the first (I’ll call it Type A), a person exists at all times. That means if you travel to the future, you will find an older version of yourself, assuming you’re still alive. […]

Leave Thanksgiving alone

Posted by Emilie Buckman on November 21, 2012 in Personal Note

You’re either a person who likes Black Friday or you’re not. I am not. Shopping in crowds of people fighting for deals sounds like an uncertain amount of torture. So when some retailers announced their Black Friday sales would start on actual Thanksgiving, I can’t express how terrible that sounds. Some people love it and […]

The end of election 2012, finally

Posted by Emilie Buckman on November 6, 2012 in Media, Personal Note, Politics

In all honesty, I didn’t think this day would ever come! With a seemingly never ending election season, the today is finally here. To say I’m excited would a gross understatement. And while others might reserve their excitement for tonight when the results come, my excitement comes tomorrow with the end of political ads!  For months it’s […]
