Women’s Retail Collective Podcast: Publicis Health Media Director of Content Laura Heller

A new podcast is live — “Women’s Retail Collective: Publicis Health Media Director of Content Laura Heller”

Laura Heller is not only an influential woman in the retail industry but as the former Editor for Retail Dive and many other industry publications, she has also been responsible for finding and telling the stories behind the rapid changes the industry has seen for years.

Laura started her career in trade magazines, writing on the grocery industry and all the greatest “Deli, Dairy, Bake” trade shows you never knew existed (you have to hear her story to believe it) and is now the Director of Editorial Content for Publicis Health Media.

In this podcast, you’ll hear Laura’s full career story and the advice she gives to everyone she mentors, from her former students at Columbia College to Chris and me about how to stay passionate about the work, the story, and the lives behind this evolving retail industry we all know and love.
