Deirdre Breakenridge | Chief Relationship Agent
"I have had the pleasure of working with Deirdre Breakenridge through her firm, Pure Performance Communications, twice over the past seven years. The first time, she worked on Siegel+Gale’s social media program when I served as its Global CMO. Currently, Deirdre is spearheading efforts to raise the profile of key executives at one of my clients, a global digital advertising firm. She’s always a joy to work with – a smart, connected, kind, and energetic communicator who tells it like it is and focuses on getting results."

"Deirdre is so much more than that the world famous modern PR lady who writes books you just have to read. I keep finding myself standing on her shoulders when I talk on the subjects of PR, Marketing Communications and customer dialogue. She shares her knowledge and experience so as to better the world. And, to top it all of, she is a wonderful sparkling woman that is a role model for any modern times girl or woman."
Founder, Power2Improve, Coach, Trainer & Speaker
"I have had the opportunity to work with Deirdre Breakenridge through her firm, Pure Performance Communications, over the past four years. My initial exposure to Deirdre’s perspective was reading her book Putting the Public Back in Public Relations, which I found so inspiring, that I engaged her through Pure Performance. The leadership that Deidre provided me in terms of reputation rebuilding and rebranding remains foundational to my current practice, and continues to be pillar of my success. Deirdre is a pleasure to work with, well organized, and extremely sensitive and mindful of deadlines, as well breaking down long term versus short term goals."
