Next, Straight Goods is hosting a new conference on labour’s image, June 14-15
You know Robin Sears, an advisor in crisis communications who will share his insights in the conference keynoter’s role.
Digital media strategist Melissa Cheater will show you how to put social media to work to help you organize online. Not just a website button workers click but a real strategy to get around management trash-talk and reach pro-union unorganized employees.
Allan Bonner teaches “How to win the air war" based on 30 years experience in broadcast and print media. He’ll also run clinics to fine-tune your on-air performance.
And pollster Marc Zwelling presents the evidence-based, union image-building system you can install the next day. He’ll also divulge the messages that put the “right to work” proponents on the defensive for once.
Previous Reviving Labour's Image workshops sold out. Only 70 spaces are available for legitimate labour movement participants the June 14-15 conference.

There are a limited number of sponsorships available for Reviving Labour’s Image, for $3000 plus HST for the Friday evening dinner and $2000 plus HST for refreshment breaks and the reception Friday evening.
Let us know right away if your organization will beat Reviving Labour's Image in June and how many seats to hold for you and your colleagues.
