Geeta Nadkarni got her first paid writing gig when she was 12. By the time she moved on to media coaching in her thirties, she’d developed a rather muscular delete finger from all the terrible press releases in her inbox. She’s now a woman with a mission and recently launched Baby Got Booked, an online training course that helps entrepreneurs and experts of every stripe do their own PR and gain the credibility, exposure and connections that only come with free press.

Her DIY tips have landed students local, national and international coverage, often in a matter of days or weeks. As a  former journalist with more than 20 years of experience, she’s worked for the CBC, CNN, Reader’s Digest, the Montreal Gazette, Asia Pacific Broadcasting (and more) producing print, TV, radio and new media. She was voted “Best TV Personality” by the readers of the Montreal Mirror and has been featured in the Montreal Book of Everything.
