About Women Worldwide
After 20+ years of mentoring women and professionals in business and marketing communications, Deirdre Breakenridge, an author, speaker, professor, and consultant, takes to the Internet radio waves–launching her podcast, Women Worldwide. Interviewed by Breakenridge, women around the globe will share their incredible stories; those who have experienced the heights of success and at times, the agony of defeat. With a vision to impart wisdom and advice on tackling barriers and soaring to new heights, Women Worldwide uncovers different perspectives and approaches to help listeners find their inner strength.
“After tragic stories of young women being harassed and cyberbullied, seeing how the media portrays women, and women being underrepresented in media, it’s time to power up the voices and get more women energized through a caring and supportive network of people who know what it takes to achieve success. These women are not afraid to discuss their challenges or even failure along the way,” says Breakenridge.
Deirdre is an author, entrepreneur, and CEO of Pure Performance Communications. A 25-year veteran in PR and marketing, she is the author of five Financial Times Press books including her latest titles, “Social Media and Public Relations,” and “Putting the Public Back in Public Relations.” Breakenridge speaks nationally and internationally on the topics of PR, social media and marketing. She’s an adjunct professor at NYU and UMASS at Amherst, a recognized blogger at PR Expanded, and also the co-founder of #PRStudChat a dynamic twitter chat with PR professionals, educators, and students.
