PR over Coffee started as a PR empowerment movement in early 2010. The origin of the name PR over Coffee came about thanks in part to the location of the first meetings, which were held at many of Austin’s trendy coffee houses. Late in 2010, however, PR over Coffee took on a more formal existence with meetings and speakers from the ranks of media, PR and small business.
PR over Coffee has since become a place for small business to connect with media professionals like journalists, editors and news producers in search of compelling “local” news. Communities are planned for all over the United States to provide businesses practical ways to practice “Do-it-Yourself” PR in their own markets. We believe small businesses and non-profits should be able to quickly learn the most effective practices and professional secrets to getting more media exposure and brand awareness.
