In this episode, Lee talks about the changes in PR and digital marketing and how the industry has evolved from the ways we once communicated with each other to how we communicate today via social platforms. Times have changed drastically, so the importance of staying relevant is key to keeping up with technology and culture. Lee shares her thoughts about the roles each generational group has set for their standards and how this has created a conflict between what is right and what is relevant. She explains the benefits between different groups like Baby Boomer and Millenials and creates a positive and effective workplace when she brings the generations together. We get to hear some of the fumbles Lee has encountered through her journey as well as the winning touchdown moment she had while working at Sega.
We also get a glimpse into the world of San Francisco and Silicon Valley and what sustainability looks like there. Lee shares some thoughts and experiences she has had about what she's experienced in those two places. You won't want to miss that!

Try following these three key offensive strategies straight from Lee’s playbook: Listen loudly, make a decision and call the play, and decide if it’s working or not. Can you make it better and listen again and implement again? If yes, do it!
