There’s a new member joining the Dialogue team. I’m very pleased to announce that Christine Perkett has joined Aaron Strout, Melanie Notkin, Carol Cone and others as a member of the Dialogue Advisory Board.
It’s not very often that you find a PR practitioner that really “gets” social media. Christine is one of the few CEO’s out there actively engaged on Twitter, who blogs on a regular basis, all while managing a crack staff of senior-level marketing pros at the company she founded in 1998.
Don’t take my word for it, here is a list of a few of her accolades.
Inclusion two years in a row by BusinessWeek as a social-media savvy CEO (keeping company with notable CEOs from Federated Media, Mashable, Sun Microsystems, Zappos, Digg, TechCrunch and more).
Published author and subject matter expert in the following books:
- New York Times and WSJ current bestseller, “Will Work From Home,” by Tory Johnson, Workplace Contributor on ABC’s Good Morning America
- “Twitter Means Business” by Julio Ojeda-Zapata
- “Inside the Minds:Public Relations Best Practices” by Aspatore Books
- “Entrepreneurial Small Business” by McGraw Hill (January 2008)
While not running her company, she somehow finds time to train for a marathon. This year, she’s running the Boston Marathon. Interested in following/supporting her cause? Take a look at her progress here

Favorite Book/Recommended Reading- ah, there are so many! Professionally,”Why Good Girls Don’t Get Ahead but Gutsy Girls Do“ is a great book as is The World is Flat. On a personal note, I am a fan of non-fiction like Into Thin Air, Beautiful Boy, Black Mass. I have a thing for learning about how people overcome tragedy or extreme challenges.
How I relax: reading (non-work/mindless stuff!), boating, jewelry design, playing with my sons (coloring and Legos are very relaxing!), date night with my husband, TV. Also, whenever I can get around to it – massages at the spa!
Words to Live By/words of wisdom – Trust yourself first, listen to your intuition. Also, life’s short – be colorful.
