At Blend, I was a External Communications Specialist within the Marketing department. I lead my teams day-to-day actions for projects, ran mid-sized product announcements, and helped execute the analyst program with Aite, Celent, and Forrester.
Within my first six months at the company, I placed several news pieces, created relationships with key reporters, drafted an executive byline, and helped plan an incredibly successful, fully-digital event, Blend Forward. I held a role as the internal communications agent, relaying milestones and updates to the entire company as we garnered top-tier customer speakers for the event and registered over 2,000 viewers.
I also executed several thought leadership platforms for colleagues around the company, most notably the Head of DIB.
