I probably have one of the hardest first names in the entire world of PR. On top of that, I have an even harder last name that 99% of my colleagues can’t pronounce.

Your name becomes your brand in PR – not only for the network of colleagues, but for your clients and the media with who you work with daily – so knowing my name is essential to me. But lucky for PR girls we have many other names that we go by.
