Scroll through LinkedIn or flip open any busi­ness mag­a­zine and it seems like the cor­po­rate world col­lec­tive­ly just dis­cov­ered a brand-new con­cept: Empathy. And it’s no won­der: If ever there was a time for lead­ers to flex their emo­tion­al-intel­li­gence mus­cles and try to under­stand what their col­leagues, cus­tomers and com­mu­ni­ties are going through, it’s now. Peo­ple are...

Recent­ly I took a look at PR role mod­els in pop cul­ture and came up fair­ly emp­ty. Yes, there were a few exag­ger­at­ed char­ac­ters like Saman­tha Jones from “Sex and the City.” But if they didn’t exact­ly spark a rush of peo­ple apply­ing for PR jobs, who did? The like­ly answer: fic­tion­al jour­nal­ists. In the 70s,...

Retro television sits on table
If there was ever a career rep­re­sent­ed on TV that needs some PR, it’s PR. The small screen is over­flow­ing with cops, doc­tors and lawyers. And espe­cial­ly dur­ing many cur­rent PR prac­ti­tion­ers’ for­ma­tive years – in the 70s, 80s, and 90s – sit-coms and dra­mas fea­tured a vari­ety of well-defined careers for all sorts of icon­ic...

Your nonprofit’s big anniver­sary is on the hori­zon – how can you max­i­mize the mile­stone so it shines the spot­light on your orga­ni­za­tion while build­ing aware­ness and boost­ing your abil­i­ty to fundraise? Account Super­vi­sor Bri­ana Grue­newald and clients Megan Muske, chief devel­op­ment offi­cer, Sec­ond Har­vest Heart­land; and Dana Nel­son, prin­ci­pal and founder, DCN Strate­gies, shared their...

Some of the pandemic’s most rel­e­vant and res­o­nant lessons about lead­er­ship didn’t come from a high-pro­file CEO’s LinkedIn post. Instead, the mas­ter-lev­el class on what it takes to be a leader was taught by a folksy, opti­mistic, pos­i­tive – and entire­ly fic­tion­al – soc­cer coach. And his sweet mustache. Ted Las­so, per­fect­ly embod­ied by Jason Sudeikis...

It’s a land­mark and emo­tion­al day for Minnesota’s fire ser­vice and for us at Bell­mont Part­ners: Our state leg­is­la­ture passed the Home­town Heroes Assis­tance Pro­gram, which ensures that every Min­neso­ta fire­fight­er will have access to edu­ca­tion, pre­ven­tion and care need­ed to han­dle a car­diac, emo­tion­al trau­ma or can­cer diag­no­sis. We are grate­ful to be a...

Some anniver­saries are worth for­get­ting. Like how it’s now been 15 months since we shut­tered our PR agency’s office and went vir­tu­al, as though we were all sucked into a game of Tron. Hooray..? But for oth­er anniver­saries, you’ve got to par­ty like it’s 1999. Or, more accu­rate­ly, 2011. Ten years ago today, the first book...

To bor­row a phrase from the Army: Shel­li Lis­sick does more before 9 a.m. than most peo­ple do all day. Par­tic­u­lar­ly dur­ing the pan­dem­ic, the ear­ly riser’s inde­fati­ga­ble work eth­ic, can-do atti­tude and roll-up-her-sleeves approach has been more crit­i­cal to the suc­cess of our agency’s clients than ever before. We’re hap­py to report that Shelli’s amaz­ing con­tri­bu­tions...

The COVID-19 pan­dem­ic has forced com­pa­nies of all sizes to reassess their oper­a­tions, includ­ing how a pub­lic rela­tions or com­mu­ni­ca­tions agency fits into the mix, and tak­ing a hard, hon­est look at the val­ue a rela­tion­ship with an agency provides. For Bell­mont Part­ners, the past 10 months have rein­forced much of what we already knew to...
