Suf­fice it to say the nov­el coro­n­avirus has impact­ed every aspect of all of our lives, and it’s just get­ting start­ed. Like many of you, we’ve can­celed our spring break trips, embraced social dis­tanc­ing and are set­tling into at-home time with our fam­i­lies. We’ve been work­ing remote­ly since last week to do our part in...

I’m fond of quot­ing not­ed 20th-cen­tu­ry philoso­pher Fer­ris Bueller: “Life moves pret­ty fast. If you don’t stop and look around every once in a while, you could miss it.” Last week, our team gave our agency’s part­ners – Jen Bell­mont, Shel­li Lis­sick and me – a refresh­er course in just how impor­tant, and how effec­tive,...

As I enter my 14th year work­ing in the pub­lic rela­tions indus­try (my eighth with Bell­mont Part­ners), I took some time to reflect on why I do what I do, and why even after a decade and a half, I can’t imag­ine doing any­thing besides pub­lic rela­tions. I’m a news junkie. Ever since ele­men­tary school,...

I’ve only been part of The Min­neso­ta Health Strat­e­gy and Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Net­work (MHSCN) board of direc­tors for a few months and it’s already been an incred­i­bly pos­i­tive expe­ri­ence. I’m excit­ed to play a role in exe­cut­ing on the organization’s strate­gic direc­tion mov­ing for­ward – with the goals of expand­ing the offer­ings in edu­ca­tion, net­work­ing, pro­fes­sion­al...

Whether it’s 5 years, 10 years, 25 years or more, a mile­stone anniver­sary can be cause for a high-impact, far-reach­ing cam­paign. And for non­prof­its in par­tic­u­lar, anniver­saries present a unique oppor­tu­ni­ty to share the organization’s his­to­ry and past accom­plish­ments, as well as declare a vision for the future. And equal­ly impor­tant, it can be a...

In the not-so-dis­tant past, you could poll 100 peo­ple and no one would list the word “cre­ative” in their list of top 10 words to describe the health care indus­try. Reg­u­la­tions and patient pri­va­cy con­cerns are just two of the many rea­sons health care has his­tor­i­cal­ly been among the indus­tries con­sid­ered most con­ser­v­a­tive in terms...
