Leading Through the Turn - Professional Development Luncheon

7740 N. 16th Street, Suite 200
Phoenix . , AZ 85020

Elise Mitchell, APR, Fellow PRSA, author of Leading Through the Turn, will share insights into leadership and goals. Elise is an accomplished strategic communications professional and business leader whose entrepreneurial spirit helped Mitchell Communications grow into one of the top 10 fastest-growing firms globally, a two-time Agency of the Year winner and Inc. 500/5000 Fastest Growing Company. Prior to founding her agency, Elise worked on both the agency and corporate sides of the business.

Elise will discuss how to lead at your best, make the journey matter as much as the destination and how to reach the destinations that matter most to you. Most leadership books only tell you how to set and achieve goals and while success is great, there’s far more to leadership and life than that. Leading Through the Turn is different, its intent is to help you to think not just about the destination, but also about the journey, because both matter.

The first 30 people to register will also get a signed copy of her book.

We offer educational and networking events, enabling communications professionals to stay current with industry news.

Some of our year-long events include media breakfasts, networking events, professional development luncheons and happy hours for new professionals. The public is always welcome to attend and chapter members receive discounts on all events.

Networking Events

We host one networking event per quarter. These events typically include two happy hours, a joint event with the International Association of Business Communicators in Phoenix and the annual Holiday Mixer. For more information, please contact Scott Huscher or Amy McConnell.

Media Breakfasts

Approximately three to six times per year, we welcome a panel of journalists and local media heavyweights from various industries to join its members for breakfast and an interactive discussion. To learn more about upcoming breakfast and volunteer opportunities, contact Kim Cole or LaTrisha Woods.


We host bi-monthly professional development luncheons featuring notable guest speakers and panelists that educate, inform and provide insight into issues impacting the industry. They are typically held on the fourth Thursday of every other month. For more information contact Melany Stroupe, APR or Candace Romero.
