Praise for the Paladin Dinner:

“I enjoyed the evening, especially seeing long time friends and colleagues. The food was good and the program was mercifully brief, albeit substantive.” – Harold Burson, Burson-Marsteller

“It was great to see many old friends .. Great event.” – John Graham, FleishmanHillard

“The experience was enlightening. Not only did I gain helpful knowledge about public relations from top industry professionals (Johnson & Johnson, Heyman Associates & MSL Group), I also received reassured career direction from Mr. Harris Diamond’s speech. The speech was the greatest take away. The Paladin dinner is an opportunity any young professional can appreciate. Most of all, to top the night I met the Director of Media Relations at GolinHarris who handed me her card and told me and other PRSSA members, “we are in the middle of intern selection shoot me an email to get in the mix.” Overall, I left thinking wow, what a great night the PRSA foundation established from food to camaraderie.” – David Mathews, president, PRSSA chapter Baruch College
