Marketing, Advertising and Spin


Marketing, Advertising and Spin

This session will be an interactive discussion on the three pillars of getting your firm’s message out.  Understanding the various mediums, how they are similar, how they are vastly different and determining what is the best avenue for your firm.

Among the topics to be explored –

  • earned or paid media – how to chose
  • social media, does it matter? (hint: yes!!!!)
  • the 411 on news releases and media relations
  • how to develop and maximize your marketing plan


Karen Gordon, Squeaky Wheel Communications (spin)

Christopher Dippell, Vellum Marketing (marketing)

Karen Gordon, Principal
Squeaky Wheel Communications

There are a lot of people who call themselves communications experts.  There is just one Karen Gordon.  Karen is Toronto’s only independent communications consultant specializing in labour and legal public relations.  Employers and law firms rely on her to advise them on their most difficult communications challenges: challenges like contract negotiations with emergency service workers, having to let a senior executive go, or a facility closure.  Over the last ten years Karen has worked with employers in industries ranging from the municipal sector to sports, and from manufacturing to healthcare. 

When Karen is not guiding her clients on their most crucial files, she is a regular speaker and commentator on communications and media relations.  You can regularly hear her fencing with Bill Carroll on AM 640.  Karen’s assessments and observations about business, labour, sports and popular culture manage to be blunt, funny and true all that the same time, and that is why clients call on her time and time again.
