Adam Harris, Keynote Speaker
After working for a local radio station as a producer and anchor for seven years, Adam became the Head of Communications and Storytelling for Arlington Heights School District 25 in Illinois in 2015. Using his experience working as a producer and anchor, Adam's goal is to tell stories through videos, newsletters, and social media to build excitement among students, parents, teachers, staff, administrators, board members, and all other stakeholders within his community.
Adam's presentation will be about embracing vulnerability to generate highly connective content.
"The job of School PR, in its essence, is to create space for connection," said Harris. "We work every day to create space for our students to connect to their work, our staff to connect with their students, and our administration to connect with our staff and community. In order to do that best, we must model what vulnerability is, looks like, and feels like.
"Being vulnerable is difficult, especially at work. My goal is to walk my audience through how vulnerability has opened up incredible possibilities for connection and for content/coverage here in Arlington Heights School District 25 in Illinois. Whether it be on social media, in an email, or face to face, I've come to realize that I have incredible power in my job to model and spread vulnerability, and this has created deep connection to our community. We are often trying to find ways to connect tens of thousands of people we don't know with a bunch of people we don't know (our staff, students, administration and community). Let's start here. Let's start with vulnerability."
