Career Coffee: Propel Your Personal Brand

IMPORTANT UPDATE: Given the March 15 recommendation by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to hold off on any gatherings with 50 people or more until at least mid-May, Chapter leadership has decided to postpone our Career Coffee event scheduled for May 14. We’ll keep you apprised. 

Companies have brands. Products and services have brands. And, so do YOU! And it's up to you to define and demonstrate your brand. Do for yourself what you do for your employer’s or clients’ brand. In this interactive session, learn how to make your personal brand a career asset. Rose McKinney will provide an overview of brand strategy for career-minded professionals and then walk through the three steps necessary to distinguish yourself and propel you to personal fulfillment.
The Career Coffee series is free to Minnesota PRSA members. Guests are welcome. Space is limited in order to support the interactive nature of the discussion.


Rose McKinney, APR, Fellow PRSA, Founder & President, Pineapple RM

Rose McKinney grew up in a family business – a wholesale electrical distributorship in Des Moines, Iowa. She had a head for business, but no intention of selling light bulbs. Instead, during a public relations class at Drake University, “the light bulb went on” when she realized the illuminating impact of brand and reputation.

Marriage, three kids, a dog, and now a grandchild, have created some lively detours throughout a fast-paced career at agencies of varying sizes and configurations. Along the way, she has served as president of Minnesota PRSA and on the Universal Accreditation Board. The Business Journals recognized her on its Top 25 list of Women to Watch, and Minnesota Business named her among the top 50 Women Who Lead. 

In 2011 Rose launched Pineapple RM, a thriving boutique agency in Minneapolis, which focuses on brand strategy and reputation management. When she’s not “doing” PR, she’s teaching it at Metropolitan State University, where she’s been an adjunct professor since 2005.
