After the wonderful stories of Hofsas House, the next panel successful writing & partnerships workshop taught us a bit about asking the right public relations agencies for business. The best thing we could have done of our blog is take this sitting. Kelly had some pretty great insights on how you should have your pitch letters ready to send out your current travel dates to different pr companies you wish to work with in order to get great assignments. She also mentioned that when asking for the work that its stickily business. Dress the part, ask lots of questions. Be sure that the company you’re potentially working for be in a position to give you more work. Take great photo’s of the sponsoring property and if you need anything or have an issue address it with the head person in charge.  So many other tips were shared in the workshop that were valuable and it was a delight to be in the room. As our workshop came to a close, we headed out to a place called Carmel Belle for lunch.

Carmel Belle is a small cafe down the way that has light bits from sandwiches to salads and specialty drinks. The spread was really nice, the people were happy to be there and the love of food brought us all together.
