SARASOTA, FL (June 9, 2014) – The Central West Coast Chapter of the Florida Public Relations Association (CWC-FPRA) presents the “Three Strategies for Place Branding” by Johnette Isham, Executive Director of Realize Bradenton, on Wednesday, June 18, 2014, from 11:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. at The Meadows Country Club, 3101 Longmeadow, Sarasota, Florida 34235. Register at www.cwcfpra.com or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. The Event is sponsored by Gateway Bank.
Isham will offer three strategies for creating a place brand, and she will explain how her organization has combined those strategies to revitalize the Bradenton area. She brings her design thinking to the execution of Realize Bradenton’s cultural master plan and partnership development. Her experience spans multiple sectors—arts, design, education, non-profit, corporate, and municipal. With a deep belief that all is possible when you focus on the best in people, she specializes in working with others on transformations. After 18 years as Vice President at Ringling College of Art and Design, Isham partnered with The Wellness Community to create a green facility for free cancer care using art, nature, and technology. She recently presented her capacity building ideas at the UN Global Forum for Business as an Agent of World Benefit.
