PR: NBA All-Star "MVP"
In a season that almost wasn't due to lockout and during a time of uncertainty about Orlando's biggest basketball star's future, the world watched as the City Beautiful hosted NBA All-Star 2012.
The mega weekend - complete with basketball royalty, entertainment superstars and Linsanity - offered Central Florida an unprecedented moment in the limelight.
In the thick of the action, PR veteran Jamie Floer, APR, CPRC, led a team that assisted the NBA with media relations and outreach during All-Star 2012. As part of this interactive PRSA Orlando luncheon, she'll share highlights, strategies and first-hand experiences from this history-making milestone.
