Sharing Canadian know-how

Kwantlen Polytechnic University’s public relations alumna has been invited to share her expertise in Croatia.

In April, Amelia Kennedy will share her Canadian know-how with undergraduate students at the University of Dubrovnik.

After turmoil in the 1990s, the country has energetically focused on rebuilding areas such as tourism and their educational systems. The University of Dubrovnik specializes in undergraduate and graduate programs in PR studies.

“I am fortunate to be heading to Croatia to be a guest lecturer and for being given the opportunity to share and exchange PR knowledge on another continent,” said Kennedy. “My current industry experience will be the basis for the material and content I’ll provide and will obviously have a very Canadian focus.

“The current program does not include event management courses so students at the university are very excited to learn more about events and given my nine years in the industry, I am thrilled to be providing them with new knowledge.”

Kennedy graduated from the Kwantlen Public Relations program in 2002 and has worked and taught at Kwantlen since 2005. She also founded Crosspoint Communications, which she has owned and operated since 2007.

“Kwantlen’s School of Business programs are designed to develop graduates who are career ready and the Public Relations program is a true leader in this respect,” said Arthur Coren, dean of Kwantlen’s School of Business.
