Frank: A gathering of communicators who work for the common good (or public interest). I found myself there this past winter, delighting in northern Florida rain while the rest of the country was being buried under snow.

Frank brings together communications practitioners, funders, experts, students and speakers in a petri dish of transformative ideas and exceptional people. Here are three key challenges we discussed—can’t wait to hear your thoughts:

Effective HeadlinesThe first line your reader sees means the difference between success and failure. Most leads are clever headlines that play on words. Many are cute, but most aren’t effective.

Compare it with another station’s intro of its new antenna:
