About Modern Communicator
It can be extremely difficult to find a safe, judgement-free zone to learn the digital skills that every marketing, public relations and communications professional need to meet expectations of their agencies and employers.
Regardless of our role—intern to CMO—we must ALL be able to communicate online for the brands we manage. It’s a requirement.
In 2019, I was frustrated by the lack of a safe place where industry professionals could ask questions without being judged. Ample content was available, but it was impossible to find resources to actually talk about the implementation of that advice, much less the nuances that made a tactic fail or succeed.
There was little help for implementing, and few trustworthy places to ask questions that might be embarrassing, or revealing of where we have gaps in our expertise.
It was impossible to find a place where someone could openly discuss failures and shortcomings, just as easily as they could share their success. An environment to share what didn’t work, as well as what did.
This is my effort to create that kind of place.
My name is Carrie Morgan, and I’m a 25+ year veteran of digital marketing and author of a two-time award-winning book on basic digital tactics for PR professionals. I’m proud to be an influencer in driving change for our industry, and hope I can help you, too.
I’m glad you’re here.

If you’re interested in being a part of the community, the first step is to join our Facebook Group, Modern Communicator.
It’s an opportunity to be part of a tribe that helps each other out. It’s also where you’ll see notifications about the events, classes and other resources made available to the group, since most are private.
I’d also encourage you to join our monthly Learning Lab events where we gather to help each other, both gathering and sharing advice. It’s a “bring your laptop and be ready to work” kind of event that’s free. It’s a small group with limited seats available. Check it out on the Events page.
As the group grows, and members attend the activities, we’ll also be creating resources behind a member log-in that will be valuable, so be sure to bookmark this website. It’s step two for getting the most possible value from Modern Communicator.
Anyway, welcome. Let’s see what we can create together. =)
