This was an interview I was so looking forward to – after all, Beth and I go way, way, way back to the early days when corporate communications was just making the transition to the first evolution of social media: the intranet. Along the way, we’ve collaborated on a variety of projects, met up for all kinds of drinks, and kept with a kind of synergetic sisterhood that only writers and creatives understand. I know you’ll not only enjoy this interview, you’ll change the way you communicate forever.
