Join us for our quarterly luncheon.

It’s been said that we are in the Retail Ice Age as more and more brick-and-mortar stores find themselves struggling to retain and attract new customers in today’s digital world. This winter, find out how to engage your audience and warm them up to your brand with interesting PR tactics and strategies that will differentiate you from your biggest competitors. Hear how the evolution of media prompted Iowa’s largest private employer to elevate its communications team to handle some of the most chilling issues in the industry. From TV news reporter to Hy-Vee’s vice president of communications, Tina Potthoff gets real about taking care of customers and promoting everything from cakes to cars.
