What are Pamunications?
It does seem a bit self-involved to name a form of communication after myself, but hey, so is creating a blog. The truth is we all have our very personal ways to communicate – effectively or not so effectively. Pamunications are my personal and professional truths in written form.
The name comes from work – I am the VP Communications at the app delivery company ironSource. When the company was still relatively small, I handled all the communications myself – PR, internal com, SEO, social media, community outreach, web content, conferences, and more – so Communications and Pamela merged into one word. Today I have a small team, but the name stuck in my head.
So here is my list of topics that are important to me and I believe I have something worthy to say.
- Corporate communications is evolving as quickly as our mobile phones. And I love it. I will write about new ways to deliver messages effectively and the old ways that haven’t changed.
- The world seems crazy sometimes – and I will write about my struggle to raise children sanely in this crazy world. All my kids – 3 biological and 2 step – lost a parent to cancer. My experience as a caretaker, widow and mom to kids who have seen hell up close impacts how and what I write.
- There is the work I do for my head, and the work I do for my heart. I will write about balancing the two – drawing from my roles as founder of a charity, and the lead of the community outreach program at ironSource,
- And then there is everything else…running and Pilates…those people who walk in front of my car at night when its raining, dressed in black…life as an NY expat in Tel Aviv…my love-hate relationship with kube…and all that other stuff that I’d like to squeeze out of my head and shape into a coherent meaningful thought.
