Flagler’s annual ‘Communication Week’ coming up

Feb 27, 2017

Flagler College’s Communication Department will be hosting its 12th annual “Communication Week,” March 6 through March 8. Its theme is, “Communication Made Simple.”

Speakers will include David Cay Johnston, author of the best-selling book, "The Making of Donald Trump." The investigative journalist and author is the winner of the 2001 Pulitzer Prize for Beat Reporting. He will speak Monday, March 6, at 11 a.m. in the Gamache-Koger Theater in the Ringhaver Student Center.

Each spring the communication department and the college’s chapter of the Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) sponsor and host the department-focused event, featuring speakers with a variety of backgrounds and experience in all areas of communication.

The speakers span the fields of journalism, media studies, and strategic communication in order to give all Communication students a chance to hear from someone within their field of study. This year’s speakers include Jim Dalton of Dalton Agency, David Cay Johnston, author “The Making of Donald Trump” and former New York Times reporter, and Conn Holohan of the Huston School of Film and Digital Media at the National University of Ireland.

“‘Com Week’ is a great chance for students to listen to professionals within the communication field,” PRSSA President Sarah Glynn said. “It gives them a chance to ask questions and hear advice from people who have entered the job market. This is also an incredible opportunity to network with these professionals and make valuable connections.”

This year’s alumni speakers include Steffi Shook, Shelton Walker, Laura Pandovani, Amber Jurgeson, Jake Sulzer and Kathleen Quillian. There will be a panel dedicated to alumni on the final day of Communication Week, Wednesday March 8.

All events are open to all Flagler students, faculty, staff, and alumni. For a complete list of speakers and events, visit here.
