The seminars will be led by Hanna Lee, the agency's founder and president, who has 22 years of experience in marketing and PR.  She has created and implemented numerous successful PR campaigns and has presented similar seminars at the New York City Business Solutions Center, Institute of Culinary Education (ICE), NYU School of Continuing and Professional Studies, NYU Masters Program in Food Studies, New York Institute of Technology (NYIT) and CUNY's New York City College of Technology.

"With the growing popularity of cocktail culture, savvy mixologists are seeking to raise their visibility, but often can't afford to hire a full-service PR agency," said Lee.  "During my complimentary seminar series, I will share my practical tips that will help these libation luminaries generate their own publicity and take their careers to the next level.  This is my way of giving back to a community that I'm passionate about."

The two-hour seminars will cover understanding the media, being a useful source of information, navigating media interviews, using public relations to build their personal brand, seeking an agent and other topics.  The seminars are designed for small groups and will foster in-depth discussions.  Those interested in attending the seminars may register via email at bartenderpr@hannaleecommunications.com.
