TEAMWORK MAKES THE DREAM WORK AT MD ANDERSON

We’re pleased to welcome Brette Peyton, executive director of public relations at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, as our March luncheon speaker. Brette leads a team of PR and publications professionals that work to promote and protect the institution through external communications and media relations efforts.

MD Anderson shifted (throughout their institution) to the idea of working in teams – from science to leadership and communications. Brette will share with us ways to foster teamwork, from common language to breaking down silos. She’ll also discuss how MD Anderson maximizes collaboration for institutional benefit including:

  • creating working groups
  • PR agency support
  • partner engagement
  • tracking results
  • rewarding successes


BRETTE WILL ALSO SHARE TWO CASE STUDIES:

  • Team Dynamo: MD Anderson and the Houston Dynamo are working together toward one goal: end cancer. The collaboration marks the first season-long cause-related jersey partnership in Major League Soccer history.
  • Nobel Prize: The first MD Anderson scientist to receive the world’s most preeminent award for outstanding discoveries in the fields of life sciences and medicine.
