Update: see this post on polling for dates, format, and price for the next seminar.
Despite the weather this week in Washington, DC, the training seminar "Information as Power: Now Media and the Struggle for Minds and Wills" was, in the words of the students, "excellent." A big thanks to Hill & Knowlton for providing an awesome (in comfort, utility, and appearance) meeting space.
The weather did cause a schedule change. Instead of 3 x 3 evenings (Mon,Tue,Wed 6p-9p) we went Monday night 6p-9p and Tuesday 10a-5p (a change facilitated by the Government shutdown).
I am exploring holding the course next month for several reasons, including by request and that several could not attend this week's seminar due to weather. Take a look at the below prospectus and tell me (in the comments below or email me) if you and/or your colleagues would be interested. Note the format of the seminar changes from 3 evenings to 2 days.
Date: March 17 - 18 or March 15 - 16
Time: 9a - 4p (includes a 1hr break for lunch on your own)
Location: DC (possibly Alexandria, but likely in DC)
The format change increases the time from 9 to 12 hours. The additional time allows for deeper discussion of the current agenda plus new topics, such as investigating social media policies, new rules and issues of the global public affairs officer, integrating with policy, and more.
Fee: $695 if paid through March 1, $795 if paid between March 1 - March 16, $895 after March 16.
Group discounts: -25% for 3 from the same institution (ex: $521.25 each if paid before March 1), -30% for 4 ($486.50 each by 3/1), and -35% for 5 or more ($451.75 each by 3/1).
Please forward far and wide and let me know if you are interested. At least 8 are needed to do this. I will email an invoice or provide a link to Google or PayPal checkout. Email me for more information.
