Alison Maloni’s mother died when she was only 4 years old – and it made her memories from that time all the more keen. The one that stands out for Alison most is this: fight for it.

It’s no surprise then, that Alison woke up one day and knew she would start a business. It was never her long-term plan, but after having worked as a broadcast journalist, and then for communication firms, she knew becoming a PR CEO was her next step.

In this episode, Alison shares advice for entrepreneurs and aspiring PR CEO –

  • Why everyone needs mentors
  • The power of asking for help
  • How to make and accept mistakes when you’re a perfectionist
  • How she prepares for a speaking engagement as a broadcast journalist
  • The value of groups: staying sharp and connected
