About Your Host

Molly McPherson is not your average public relations practitioner. She can whip out a media statement, geek out over how a crisis started and knows her way around Twitter but when you get right down to it, her role is to help leaders protect themselves in the digital age. 

Molly's combined experience as the head of communications for the cruise line industry and her role in shaping FEMA's online media efforts turned into a passion for helping organizations and their leaders feel comfortable communicating in the digital age. She is the founder of the online training program, Confident Leader Network and loves to talk about current events and how *not* to become the subject of the next viral news story.
