Betsy Merryman and I worked together at Fischer Health before it was purchased by Porter Novelli. Betsy was a true mentor, and even though we’ve both moved on we
have continued to stay in touch. She recently started Merryman
Communications

Betsy Merryman

  • How did you arrive in your current role?

Because I decided I wanted to quote Frank Sinatra and “Do it my way.”  Seriously, I wanted to find a way to do what I do best (partner with clients and team members in strategic communications) but without having to do it the typical agency way, which always burned me out with hours that were too long and too much travel – all of which took me away from my family too much.  Now I get to do what I like and be home for dinner.

  • What do you love most about the work you do?

I LOVE (and yes, with a capital LOVE) learning, and I’m always learning from new situations and opportunities, clients, team members, colleagues (including the Three Wise Dames) and my students.

  • Where is the most exotic place in the world that you’ve eaten?

The Peking duck was better in Hong Kong than it was in Beijing.  But then again that was a long time ago – and telling you how long ago will make me feel old.
