social media spotlite #3: Jeremy Pepper

On Tuesday in class, we will get a skype visit from San Fransisco-based PR social media thought leader Jeremy Pepper.

His official bio says all kinds of important things like that he is the Director of Communications at The Point; prior to that he was at Weber Shandwick working with clients like Cisco, BEA Systems, General Motors, MasterCard International, Verizon Wireless and VeriSign on social media; he founded POP! Public Relations in Scottsdale, AZ; worked in-house as Public Relations Manager at Ofoto, and at Shandwick International on the Eastman Kodak and Compaq teams; & he has a IPRA Golden Award + 2 PRSA Silver Anvil Awards of Excellence. But here is his the bio from his blog - it's more fun:
Work in PR/Comm/Marcom. Work at a start-up called The Point. Used to work at a large agency and prior had my own PR firm in Arizona, POP! Public Relations. Have lived and worked in Detroit, Scottsdale/Phoenix, Tucson, Los Angeles, New York, Chicago and San Francisco Bay Area. Have a dog. He's great.
Check out what his new company, The Point, is doing by creating a single place for activists to pool their petition resources to make the world better.
