Gerry CorbettThere are times I think about my career and it feels like I’ve only been doing this for 10 years or so.

(Not to mention that when I look in the mirror, I want to see my 27-year-old self looking back.)

But never has it been more apparent that it’s been much, much longer than that than while chatting with today’s guest, Gerry Corbett, about how far the industry has come, particularly in the past few years.

We talk about the big, green Bacon’s books, getting client approvals by fax, and entering the PR industry when there were only a few universities offering it as a degree.

We also talk about Gerry’s beginnings which, surprisingly, were not in PR and the story of how he got here is fascinating.

Not only is he an extraordinarily experienced communicator, he is a former PRSA (national) Chair and CEO, he’s APR certified, and he’s a Fellow.

You’ll enjoy spending a few minutes with him.
