I’m writing to you today from lovely New Ulm, Minn., where I spoke to a group of 40-or-so marketers and PR folks about Facebook ads. I’ll have the prezo up later today, if you’re interested (right after I make a pit stop at the Schell’s Brewery!).
However, you’re not here to here about my life–you’re here to learn about what’s happening in the Twin Cities PR scene! Here’s the latest job changes, promotions, events, new account wins and award wins in Twin Cities PR in the last week:
