We had the good fortune of connecting with Valerie Christopherson and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Valerie, what is the most important factor behind your success?
Global Results Communications for 17 years now has remained on a forward path as a direct result of our ability to attract top-notch talent throughout the decades. Having won more than 100 awards, the GRC Brand stands for results, quality, reliability, diverse and intelligence. The most important factor behind the firm’s continued success stems from a collaborative team that mutually respects each other and understands that the ultimate goal is to be a partner to our clients and garner their desired outcomes. It’s also important to note that GRC’s brand success stems from it’s legacy of relationships, on a global scale, with members of the editorial community. Without the win-win combination of our talent, clients and the editorial community, the brand wouldn’t be what it is today.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
Global Results Communications (GRC) is a full-service communications firm offering PR, Social Media and Digital Communications services focused on technology and everything it touches. The path to GRC’s existence stemmed from a decade of learning from PR professionals and having the privilege to work with some of the most influential C-Suite executives this globe has to offer. GRC’s journey began with a simple desire to work with the best the industry has to offer, primarily in telecom in 2005. At that time, the goal was to focus on quality, not growth. As a result of its early days, now 17 years later, we’re proud to say we still have clients from 2005 and along the way continue to represent companies that are impacting our everyday lives. We touch everything from the Metaverse to the technical roots enabling today’s connected lifestyle. GRC is unique in that we listen to our clients’ goals, we brainstorm the best path to achieving those goals and we implement strategies that deliver on those goals. The Team at GRC has a motto #MovingForward as we embrace every challenge and simply move forward. While we’re not perfect, we believe that through collaboration internally and with the clients, we achieve better results together.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Oh, this is a tuff one. Southern California is AMAZING. Within a 45-minute drive span (okay, minus traffic) you can get to the snow, the beach and to one of the most recognized cities in the world – Hollywood! I’d carve out time for a person visiting the area to truly see the culture. SoCal has amazing homegrown restaurants, entertainment options and places to relax, or if you like chaos, theme parks! I would also carve out a good amount of time to walk the streets of LA, OC and San Diego as it’s through those street walks you will see the beauty of SoCal in its diversity. While some walks are a bit unnerving due to the increased homeless population in SoCal you can find the best humanity has to offer – you’ll see people offering to help others, you’ll see people simply giving a smile or nod to someone who may be down on their luck, you might find someone buying a meal or two for someone they don’t know. The point being, is you have to stay positive, and you need to look closely at everything you do, and when you really see what’s going on, you will see the good in everything SoCal has to offer.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
Success for me comes from deep family roots. Life’s journey is never boring and having family along for the ride creates a sense of success in itself. In my case, at the helm is my mother, who instilled the value of family in myself, my three sisters and my brother. I also have the privilege of having an amazing aunt and cousins all within close proximity and awesome in-laws and other half. I’ve learned a lot from my nephews and nieces as the new generation emerges as success also comes from seeing different viewpoints from different generations. And lastly, my son. His amazing endurance to handle more than the average six-year-old in his short, happy life thus far has taught me that success can be found in a simple good morning smile.
