I start today’s video off by saying our guest is the nicest person on this planet and it’s very, very true.
For those of you who know Deirdre Breakenridge, I know you’ll agree. And, for those of you who don’t know her yet, you’ll quickly learn.
She is an incredibly kind human being and I am honored to spend 20 minutes with her…and share her with you.
Deirdre is the founder of Pure Performance, a PR firm in New Jersey.
She also is no slouch when it comes to, well, everything else.
She is the author of five books, including:
- Social Media and Public Relations: Eight New Practices for the PR Professional;
- Putting the Public Back in Public Relations;
- PR 2.0, New Media, New Tools, New Audiences;
- The New PR Toolkit; and
- Cyberbranding: Brand Building in the Digital Economy.
She is an adjunct professor at New York University (NYU) and an online instructor for UMASS at Amherst Journalism Department.
She is a Lynda.com author, with a 30-video course on the Fundamentals of Public Relations.
She is the host of Women Worldwide, a podcast where women (and some men) share their insight and wisdom.
Today is her birthday!
If you’re exhausted just reading this, wait until you find out the one thing about her that would surprise most people.
I’ll give you a hint: She must be great at parties!
Without further ado…
