End of a Blairera Part 2

Since July 2012 I have been working for Whistler Transit (well, almost that whole time). I took a brief “sabbatical” to work for a different company and help out with communications for a TV show. Last March I returned to transit for an undetermined amount of time to help out. Simultaneously, I was running my PR company… which I started in 2008. As it so happens, my client list grew longer and longer and my plate became quiet full. This is awesome because this has all been via referrals!

So, I made a decision: it’s time to leave my current role at Whistler Transit.

The reason I built my own company was so that I can live the life that I’m meant to live. Being creative. Marching to the beat of my own drum. Traveling when I want to. Controlling my income.

My journey with transit isn’t fully over but my current roll is. The team is fantastic and I will truly miss working with everyone.

So, if you need me I’ll be creating conversations and managing perceptions in Pemberton, Vancouver, the beach, the mountains and basically anywhere with Wifi. Want to learn more about my PR Company, you can visit www.blairkaplan.ca to check me out.

I’m Back

I’m getting back into my blogging  groove. I know you are excited! I sure am. Why not start off with some awesome press coverage I recently received.

Strangely enough, one of the hardest things for me to do is to talk about / promote myself as a Communications Specialist. Most of the general population finds it hard to talk about and promote themselves…which is why these people would hire someone like me.

My job is to talk about YOU and to get people talking about YOU.

Well, I’m stepping out of my comfort zone and sharing with you a little press coverage that happens to be about me. You can find it in the September / October issue of Fresh Magazine or just read the image below!
