Hello World and Welcome to My Blog!

Petey Parker

I’ve been in the business world as a keynote speaker and consultant for a long time. I’ve learned what to do and what not to do from my experience as a corporate executive for 30 plus years as well as a speaker and consultant. It’s time to share my perspective with you, as well as offer my comments on today’s issues and headlines. I carefully curate topics from a variety of sources, inside and outside the news media. I’m bringing perspective on what’s important to you and your company. We’ll cover interests as varied as leadership, bridging the generational divide, changes in the way we communicate and tech trends. I understand all of us are busy; you can expect short updates and even video posts about twice a week.

I’m opening our conversation this quarter with the topic, ETC: Expectations, Training and Consequences. With all the public mea culpas flying around in recent weeks, I think we should talk about how to apologize and the consequences of a bad apology. Let me know what you think. My blog won’t be all business, either. (Neither are you!) I’m going to South Africa in a few weeks with my wonderful hubby, Jim Fite. I’ll be sharing words and pictures of the beauty in other parts of the world.

By the way, this is not a monologue. I want to hear from you as well. I know that you have a lot to say and I want to hear your voice. So…let’s talk.

Timing is everything. I’ve been asked for some time to share my thoughts and experiences with you in blog form, but was puzzled on how to go about it. Then I walked into Jeff Crilley’s monthly PR Meetup (fabulous! You should go). I had no idea that one of the pieces of the puzzle would be waiting for me. I met Charlotte Ann Moore, an amazing creative writer, speaker and soon-to-be author. I became her client and she became a trusted friend. Charlotte Ann, along with her business partner, graphic/Web whiz Chaney Credeur, and my my Marketing Manager, Elise De Cleva, put together the wonderful site you see here. If you’re interested in creative design and content for your company, I highly recommend Charlotte Ann and Chaney. You can reach them at www.CharlotteAnnMoore.com and/or www.ChaneyCredeur.com.
