Concordia alumnus Gretchen Jameson will present “The Voice: Communicating with passion and purpose in the Social Era” on Oct. 9.

Concordia’s Looking Beyond Speaker Series presented “The Voice: Communicating with passion and purpose in the Social Era."

A 1997 graduate of Concordia, Jameson works as a communications and public relations strategist at PurePR, a company she founded in 2010 with the motto “Mission Matters Most.” The public relations firm works with ministries, nonprofits, nongovernmental organizations and mission-based for-profit companies to develop effective communication and relationship strategies.

Jameson has made a career out of talking and listening, using Twitter, Facebook, email and blogs. Her lecture will explore the use of different media platforms to talk about causes, missions and nonprofit work.

“Social media is more than most people think it is,” says Jameson, “and faced with a future that offers an unprecedented chance to amplify your voice, your convictions and your beliefs, it’s time to get thoughtful about the possibilities.”

The Looking Beyond Speaker Series is made possible by Dr. Martin and Regina Maehr.
