Much has been written about Crisis PR, rife with examples of doing it wrong or doing it right. I often get asked to provide a quick reference for managing challenging public relations situations. Keep in mind that “public” doesn’t mean “the public” as a whole, but rather represents the group of people or institutions who […]
Evidently, I’ve been saying it often since I started writing this blog almost three years ago. The above graphic is a wordle created from the rss feed of my blog. There’s no way to date-limit or post-limit the data pulled… what’s in the feed, or what you enter into a text block provided (handy if […]
UPDATE: This conference is still coming to OK, but will be making its debut in the Spring of 2012 with a more intensive format and open to both men and women. Watch this updates as we firm details! — Mandy The name is actually misleading, I think… because the conference isn’t really about getting […]
I found an article by Inc. magazine on rebranding a company and when it makes sense to do so that I tweeted and amplify’d. I liked the article enough to post the amplify.com note to my blog, too. If you’re a regular reader, you know I almost never “reblog” anything. Bottom line, I thought it […]

Plus some other moms and leaders of course… altogether, about 300 of us were present for a night of adventure and discomfort. You […]
I live a digital life. I don’t mean that I’m involved in digital media, though I am (hey, you’re reading this, right, and you probably got here via Facebook, Twitter, or Google). I mean that my first instinct to discover, research, connect or share now involves digital platforms. Cases in point: I saw a tweet […]
Radio-style interview I did with Doug Stewart of Power to Fight the Big Boys about using social media and PR to effectively market small businesses and achieve the results you want in your efforts.
If you’ve been there, you know it stinks… and sometimes the worst of it isn’t the financial difficulty, it’s the confidence shattering, ego body blow that does you in. While I own my business so I can’t technically “get fired,” it feels very much the same when a client decides to go another route and […]
