So, you want to start a podcast?

Tue, 09 Jan 2018 22:54:41 +0000

There’s no question that podcasting has exploded in popularity. Publications like Adweek, Forbes and others have been touting some impressive stats. Friends and colleagues mention their favourite shows – from politics to comedy to PR to history. And I’m seeing an upward tick in interest among my clients. Since 2005 I’ve helped many organizations, from […]

Sun, 31 Dec 2017 17:33:45 +0000

At the end of each year I’m curious to see which of my blog posts were the most popular. Well, 2017 was no surprise. My posts about podcasting are again the most read of all of my hundreds of entries. It’s interesting that most of these are not new, proving the value of evergreen content. […]

Stop wasting time online!

Mon, 29 May 2017 16:48:22 +0000

It’s so easy to fritter away time. Even with a looming deadline, we can fall down the Twitter rabbit hole, get sucked into studying all of our friends’ Facebook vacation photos, and find every flimsy excuse to not get work done. Is there a better way? I like to believe it’s possible to use social […]

Best practices for internal podcasting

Mon, 12 Dec 2016 19:30:43 +0000

In 11 years of podcasting, I’ve produced all kinds of content, mostly for marketing/public relations/thought leadership. But there’s another constant: internal podcasts. We don’t hear about these podcasts very often, because they’re hidden behind a firewall and consumed only by employees or association members. Organizations as diverse as IBM, Whirlpool and Disney are purported to […]

Social Media 101 Workshop, Toronto

Wed, 07 Dec 2016 21:34:21 +0000

One of my favourite things: leading workshops to introduce people to the how and why of social media.
