The first person to comment on a posting to my brand new blog was one of my students. Priceless!
In their wonderful book, Citizen Marketers, authors McConnell and Huba say “Google never forgets.” Having commented, my studentAnna Marie Forbes Worthington, will be right there on the blogosphere record with me on this journey. Anna Marie is not only an accomplished student, but while attending college fulltime, she also works full-time in advertising at The Cyphers Agency. She is now adding her excellent PR skills to her work at the agency. I hope that she and other students and friends will let this blog be a source of discussion to help us all learn and grow.
The second person to comment was strategic communication consultant, writer, seminar leader, and organizational communication expert Robert J. Holland, ABC. Robert has been my best friend and partner in so many meaningful professional, career, and life experiences over the years that I could devote a blog to him alone.
Robert’s experience and abilities rank him as tops in the profession. But Robert is truly a good man. That is a simple statement, but it is profoundly meaningful as it is instructive for students who wish to find a role model (Students already have me as a “roll” model).
As a consultant and counselor to his many and varied clients, Robert is formidable in ability, customer-focused in service, and always exemplary in character. His integrity is above reproach, and in these cynical times, Robert stands apart in the values he brings to his work. Just check out his core beliefs.
