Director of Business Development
Lauryn joined Dittoe PR as an account executive where she honed her media relations and content creation skills before transitioning to business development. Today, as director of business development, Lauryn works to identify and secure new business for the firm, fosters ongoing relationships with clients, and supports Dittoe’s own PR and marketing efforts. She loves meeting new people, learning about their organizations, and figuring out how PR and social media can help them achieve their overall goals.
Lauryn started her career in local news in the Indianapolis market, serving as a producer at Inside INdiana Business and an on-camera reporter for FOX59, CBS4 and the Indiana Pacers. She graduated from Indiana University where she learned good journalism starts with curiosity. And it turns out business development does, too.
“Should I hire a PR agency or just hire someone internally?” We hear this often on the business development side of things. There are major differences between hiring an agency and hiring an individual(s) in-house to oversee PR, and pros and cons for each. Here are some things to consider if your organization is weighing whether to hire a PR agency versus keeping or adding PR in-house.
If we’ve learned anything from this past year, it’s that sometimes it’s hard to anticipate what the future holds and how different audiences will react. As our virtual world continues to expand and evolve, so will the need for impactful external communications globally.
Public relations is a profession that is built upon communication and the skills needed to cultivate favorable public images for organizations and/or individuals. For our staff at Dittoe PR, it’s been interesting to observe how our day-to-day lives have shifted – everything from where we’re working, to what our clients need.
