I found that most organizations are challenged with managing multiple priorities and challenging personalities. Sometimes it is not about being the smartest, it’s about being the boldest to persuade stakeholders.
I have worked in marketing and communications for more than fifteen years and have seen both the good and bad when it comes to strategy and tactics. Most of my posts are from my point of view and do not represent my organization or past organizations. Lived through two tech bubbles and survived to see another day.
Over the last few year’s have had the pleasure of speaking at conferences such as PRSA Mid-Atlantic Chesapeake, Social Media Strategies Summit, DC Web Maven, and education software user group Hobsons University. If you didn’t get to see me talk in person, you can read my perspective on AMA Marketing News, MarketingProfs, Social Media Today, Brand Quarterly, and Oracle Marketing Cloud’s Modern Marketing blog. When I am not on the road speaking or writing, I am advising PR and Communications graduate students as a alumni advisor for Georgetown University. Hoya Saxa.
I have approached all projects and roles with three rules: 1) Do your best 2) Make nice, even if it hurts 3) Try to learn from other as well as teach.
