Happy 2011! I’ve been tweeting but not keeping up with this blog as well as I should be.
Last month, I reached out to a few women who worked in PR and social media. I wanted to meet more people like me – people who were social media types and worked in PR firms. A few weeks ago, we met up in Culver City.
Left to right: that’s me, Laura from Fleishman, Christina & Christina & Heidi from Murphy O’Brien, and my colleague Shone from Blaze. We’re missing Tiffany from Wunderman.
We talked about clients, tools, and the dynamics in managing clients’ programs within a PR framework. I had such a fun time meeting these women. I feel like I have my own peer group now; even if we’re working in competing firms, there is plenty of work for everyone. (At least I believe so.)
I’m hoping to find a few more peers in Orange County and meet up with Tiffany again. If you are a social media manager or PR/social media hybrid account executive who works at a PR firms in OC, please let me know! I’d love to meet you.
