As a corporate communications and public relations (PR) professional, I have spent a significant portion of my career telling the stories of an organization, its people, and the clients they serve. I have explored the most optimal ways to package, share, and repurpose these stories in order to educate, innovate, and bring broad visibility. I have become fairly tech-savvy along the way as I’ve learned about and leveraged the many platforms, applications, and tools available to make the most of the content sharing process.
With a good many years experience under my belt, I now want to share my own stories and the many things I’ve learned along the way, and hear from all of you about what you’ve experienced. As a life-long learner, I want to continue growing my knowledge and experiences – writing about our interests can be a great method to force us out of our comfort zones and hold us accountable to more holistically explore a topic.
My posts will cover the world of communications and PR, social media, branding, marketing, and similar topics. I’ll also speak about areas such as Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), networking, culture, leadership, women’s issues and challenges, and hope to share a few personal stories along the way.
I’m very excited to get started; however I do have one note of protocol. I invite feedback, questions, and suggestions as long as they stay professional and respectful. There are enough sites out there where individuals can express negativity while tearing down others. I prefer a healthy, positive dialogue where individuals feel safe sharing their comments, questions, and stories. If responses become disrespectful, I will exercise the right to block individuals and / or remove comments.
