Communications Counseling—Step by Step
Presented by Marisa Ellison, Communications Manager,
Missouri Department of Transportation
NAGC Member Registration | Non-Member Registration
You probably already know
it, but your leadership or colleagues probably don't...a major service
you provide in your professional environment is communications
counseling. No need for a Ph.D....just the know-how to help your agency
understand the importance of communication and what it can do to help
get work done more easily, efficiently, and effectively.
During this 40-minute webinar, Marisa Ellison, Communications
Manager for the Missouri Department of Transportation, will walk through
some of the steps she takes when she provides communication counseling
to her colleagues, especially those that help her gain leadership buy-in
for communications planning.
So sit back, relax (a little), and take note of the practical
suggestions Ms. Ellison brings to this month's Webinar Wednesday
session. (A preview to Lie Down & Relax – Your Communications
Counseling Session Has Begun, presentation to be given Thursday, June 9
at the 2016 NAGC Communications School in Washington, D.C.)
Marisa Ellison is the communications manager for the Missouri
Department of Transportation’s Northeast District where she works
closely with leadership to develop and implement communication
strategies for public involvement and citizen engagement efforts on all
transportation projects. Marisa currently serves as the Membership and
Volunteers Director for NAGC and has been involved with the organization
for 10 years.
