Stay Relevant in Austin’s Rapidly Changing Landscape

Evolving Austin Event on Thursday, Dec. 3 to Feature Experts from Austin's Largest Organizations

With construction on Mopac, downtown’s planned medical district, South Congress expansions and an influx of new developments, Austin changes more every day. We rely on public officials, media and top organizations to communicate how this change will impact our community—and us personally. Pierpont’s upcoming discussion series, Evolving Austin, will give you the opportunity to dive into the conversation around how this expansion will impact our future as Austin residents while gaining a better understanding of our city’s top issues.

This year’s event brings lead communicators for three of the city’s largest and most visible organizations. These experts will explore the challenges and opportunities of speaking on behalf of these organizations.

Adrienne Lallo, Communications Director for Seton Healthcare Family, will discuss how she navigates Seton’s involvement with the new teaching hospital as part of Austin’s new Innovation District.  She’ll share how she communicates Seton’s goals for the future of care for Central Texas and explore the challenges of communicating for Austin’s largest healthcare system.

As the Public Information & Media Relations Officer for TxDOT, Kelli Reyna is on the front lines of Austin traffic and transportation issues. Reyna will discuss how she navigates between Austin residents and Austin transportation, an increasingly important topic as Austin’s population continues to expand.  

Robert Cullick, Director of Communications & Marketing for Austin Energy, encounters a different set of obstacles as a communications director in the energy sector. With a year of disastrous weather, Austin Energy has been faced  quickly and efficiently solving energy issues for Austin residents, not to mention preparing for future incidents. 

These lead communicators represent the changing landscape in Austin and an evolution that we as cannot afford to overlook. If you want to be a part of the conversation secure your spot at this year’s Evolving Austin today.
