Denver Business Journal:
PRSA Colorado President Elisabeth Monaghan contributed another bylined article to the Denver Business Journal today: "PR pros can help executives enter networking circles." In the article, Elisabeth kindly quoted me (Maggie Holben, author of this news feed blog):

"While some executives say they lack the time to network, Maggie Holben, owner of Absolutely Public Relations in Lakewood, says they still can establish professional contacts and enhance their company’s community exposure.

'Good networkers are active in community organizations,' she said. 'They aggressively pursue and serve on committees and hold board positions, including officer stints — even if those organizations center on their children’s school or extracurricular activities. If an executive doesn’t have the time to volunteer, he can readily share his company’s management and accounting talents, and he views this as an opportunity, not a chore.'

Holben also recommends that executives encourage others in their organizations to volunteer their time and talents, sit on nonprofit boards or join professional organizations.

'It is much easier for a public relations professional to nominate an executive for an award or promote a company when the organization invites and is recognized for creating a culture of community involvement,' she said."

Found on page 64, this is the fourth collaboration between ELSJ and CBSA. The current ESLJ issue will be distributed next week at the BIO Convention in Chicago:

"USA: Colorado's bioscience industry boasts a strong infrastructure. 

Buildings that encompass a city would crumble without a strong foundation, and a great industry community requires the same sturdy infrastructure. The Colorado bioscience community has a strong infrastructure supporting it, but over the last year that foundation has become even stronger...Colorado's research institutions have grown in capacity and have been able to sustain this growth through the support of new endeavors."
