Michael J. Ferguson Press Release

All of the campaigns created below were created during my masters program at Iona College.

PR616: Publicity Campaigns 

In PR616, I had to pitch a full campaign idea a company including a deep description of my campaign rationale, explaining and justifying the need for it, how it will address company issues, to what audiences it’s directed, timeline and intended outcome. The company I chose was Old Spice, and the idea behind the campaign I created was to revamp their image after several people sued them for experiencing burns after using Old Spice products.

PR615: Principles of Public Relations

In this class, I was challenged to apply communication theory and elements to public relations and develop crucial creative skills in tactics, communication, strategy and evaluation for an effective PR campaign. I choose to use The Body Shop as my “client” and created an anti-bullying campaign and event, which I called the “Beauty Workshop.”

In PR691, I created a crisis communications prevention plan. Each student was expected to write a full communications plan for a corporate entity or individual they have selected. I chose Victoria’s Secret and launched a “Healthy Body” campaign.
