Women Leaders in PR: Liz Kaplow Has Got a Few Tips For Building Your PR Career

We’ve been publishing profiles from our Women Leaders in PR series on Wednesdays. But we thought it only fitting that this week, we add our latest installment on International Women’s Day. Happy happy everyone!

Spin the Agencies of Record

Spanish telecomm company Telefónica Digital is looking for a global PR firm, Holmes Report says. The company was formed last year and is looking to expand in the cloud computing, e-health, and mobile advertising spaces. They’re looking for a firm with digital expertise and the ability to work internationally.

Nissa Anklesaria, an SVP with Kaplow, said this is one of the first clients that the firm has “brought on board to leverage both offices.”
