Laurie Head is co-owner of AIS Network, leading all facets of corporate communications, content and culture and occasionally guiding clients who need award-winning application development. After careers in broadcast journalism and public affairs, Laurie went out on a limb in 1998 to direct communications for an investment bank’s technology practice.

When she’s not playing any of those parts or blogging, she’s walking the dog.
