Christina Pilarski, the dynamic leader of CIPR Communications based in Calgary, received a major recognition from the Entrepreneur Herald. Pilarski was named to their Top 30 Entrepreneurs to Watch in 2022 list.

The Entrepreneur Herald, a digital publication focused on connecting leaders and innovators from across the globe, highlights the stories and ideas of the world’s best and brightest entrepreneurs and creates opportunities for meaningful conversations that help to educate and motivate its readership. They believe entrepreneurs are crucial in today’s interconnected world for sparking real change across different sectors. In the announcement, they pointed out, “Entrepreneurship is key to pushing industries forward, making the world a better place for innovation and growth in specific fields.”

Christina shared her excitement about the honor, saying, “It’s a huge honor to be recognized among such amazing entrepreneurs. With the help of my incredible team, I look forward to continuing to challenge the status quo and drive innovation in marketing and communications.”

Christina’s experience in the industry is built on a strong educational background with both a Bachelor’s and a Master’s in Communications Studies from the University of Calgary. Her thesis was a deep dive into how social media can influence policy change—a topic that has become incredibly relevant since she started CIPR Communications in 2010 and went full-time in 2015.

2021 was tough for a lot of small businesses, but thanks to Christina’s business savvy and deep understanding of the industry, plus her partner (both in business and life) Peter Pilarski’s vision, CIPR Communications had its most profitable year ever, growing by over 55%. Since then, the company has experienced continued growth by supporting clients from a wide range of industries and facilitating fascinating conversations through the Two Babies and a Business podcast.

“Taking risks comes with the territory, but the rewards are worth it,” said Christina. I’m excited about continuing our meaningful work and building lasting relationships with our amazing clients in North America and around the world in the years to come. The future looks bright!”

As we approach a transformative era in marketing and communications, it’s clear that we are venturing into new territory. The emergence of AI tools and large language models, like ChatGPT, signify a radical shift in how we approach marketing. This revolution is set to fundamentally alter SEO, digital advertising, and public relations, reshaping the strategies we deploy for companies, brands, and ourselves.

In this evolving landscape, the importance of public relations and brand building is increasingly apparent. To stay ahead of the curve, it’s important to move towards an integrated approach that combines digital marketing with a strong focus on PR, leveraging the best of both worlds to stay ahead in a competitive environment.

In a world increasingly dominated by AI, understanding the need for every company—and individual—to act as their own media channel is key. Providing authentic, original content not only enriches the global knowledge pool but also enhances your personal and corporate branding in meaningful ways.

Looking ahead, we see a future brimming with entrepreneurial opportunities. This era of AI-first industries is likely to ignite an entrepreneurial boom, highlighting the critical role of personal branding in this new dynamic.

To succeed in personal branding during these transformative times, consider the following advice:

Embrace Your Uniqueness: Use this period of change as a chance to reinvent yourself. Reflect on your unique skills and passions—what can you offer that no one else can? This era allows for a reimagining of potential, enabling you to break free from previous limitations and envision a future where your individuality and talents drive your success.

Leverage Technology to Your Advantage: Identify which tasks can be automated or supported by technology, and focus on your strengths. For those who struggle with organization or detail-oriented tasks, there’s a number of apps and tools that can manage these areas, allowing you to excel in roles that require big-picture thinking and visionary leadership. Embracing AI can free you to operate primarily within your zone of genius, expanding your capabilities and impact.

Choose Your Channels Wisely: Personal branding is not one-size-fits-all. The digital age offers numerous platforms for building your brand, from podcasts and blogs to e-newsletters and social media. Select platforms that align with your personality and goals, and maintain a consistent message across all mediums to build a strong, recognizable brand for yourself.

As we navigate this new digital age, rethinking our strategies is not just beneficial—it is imperative for survival. The shift towards a more integrated approach to PR and digital marketing is a testament to the innovative strategies needed to lead in the future. In a landscape reshaped by A and new technologies, adopting these new approaches to personal branding is essential to keep your voice in the conversation.
