Laura Baddish - PR Takeaways from Thanksgiving Dinner

  1. 1. PR TAKEAWAYSFROM THANKSGIVING DINNER BY LAURA BADDISH
  2. 2. 1. CREATE A MENU Always go in with a plan. Thanksgiving meal is a huge undertaking which usually involves a lot people. It’s important to lay out as much as possible so you know which tools you will need, how much time it will take, and what needs to happen.
  3. 3. 2. KNOW YOUR GUESTS Understand who your guest, reader, audience is. Of course having a menu is great, but if the people in attendance are vegetarian, preparing a turkey isn’t ideal. What about nut allergies? Bye bye to pecan pie. Create things that are relevant and that meet the expectations of those being served.
  4. 4. 3. PLAY TO YOUR STRENGTHS Understand who your guest, reader, audience is. Of course having a menu is great, but if the people in attendance are vegetarian, preparing a turkey isn’t ideal. What about nut allergies? Bye bye to pecan pie. Create things that are relevant and that meet the expectations of those being served.
  5. 5. 4. ASK FOR HELP Sometimes you’re not good at everything. Acknowledge that and seek the help you need to make the day a great one. Keep the help to a minimum, of course; finding the right person for the right job is a priceless skill, and your guests will appreciate the effort.
  6. 6. 5. BE A GOOD HOST Don’t invite people over and forget about them. Exercise good manners, acknowledge relationships, stay in communication.
  7. 7. 6. PLAN FOR THE BEST, BUT Even when you’ve done all you can, things can and still happen. Keep your cool, strategize and execute immediately. Doing so shows that you’re a problem solver, and ensures that everyone will have a good time, meaning they will be happy to return again.
