*** One Paragraph Pitch:

Hi Ned –

Here is my pitch.

After more than a decade in the communications-marketing-advertising world as both a client and a vendor (most recently, I was Director of Marketing for a commercial real estate firm), I founded Stonegate Associates at the end of 2007 as a full service marketing consulting firm. I am currently the sole proprietor, but I have several “partner” companies that I work with. Stonegate's specialty is analyzing the marketing strategies of small to mid-sized companies by reviewing their marketing budgets, doing a full analysis of their marketing program and their competition, making recommendations and creating a comprehensive marketing plan. Our goal is to help companies get the most out of their marketing dollar – you don't need a big marketing budget to get big results. Please visit www.stonegateassociates.com for the complete list of our capabilities. Thanks.

*** Communication books and resource materials for Ethiopia:

I asked Dr. Negussie Teffera about the materials needed for the PMC Media Resource Center being assembled in Addis Ababa.

Ned: What types of books or materials do you need?

Negussie: We need all kinds of communication and media related books including

journalism (broadcast and print media, cinema), theatre art, drama,

speech, communication research journals, public relations, media and

communication training manuals, etc.

Ned: Who would be able to take advantage of these resources?

Negussie: Ethiopian journalists, media practitioners, communication researchers,

writers and theatre art experts, public relation officers, media

trainers, etc.

Ned: Are there many communication professionals in Addis Ababa?

Negussie: Yes, there are many media and communication practitioners and

professionals.

Ned: Is English a commonly spoken language among business professionals?

Negussie: Yes, English is a commonly spoken language. English is the language of

instruction starting from high school. It is also accepted language for

official duties in government and private agencies. Most trainings and

workshops are held in English language. All most all books in our

library are in English. There are no communication and media related

books and manuals in the Ethiopian official language Amharic.

Ned: And would books and manuals in English be useful for your resource

center?

Negussie: It is books in English that we use for all our trainings and higher education.

I asked Bill Ryerson, PMC’s president, about their work in Ethiopia:

Hi Ned,

PMC-Ethiopia is our largest country office in both space and number of staff. We have 15 staff there, plus contract part-time writers and actors. We occupy all of one floor of a small office building. The suite has a conference room and our resource center as well. You'll see in the attached a description of the projects being conducted by PMC-Ethiopia, as well as descriptions of our work in other countries. Basically, we are producing a radio serial drama, a radio talk show, two magazine programs for use in the Ethiopian regions of Afar and Somalia, and various print materials.

In most offices, our staff numbers range from one to four or five. In addition to our headquarters in Shelburne, Vermont, PMC currently has offices in Brazil, Mexico, Ethiopia, Kenya, Mali, Niger, Nigeria, Rwanda, Saint Lucia, and Senegal for projects under way or being developed. We have projects without PMC offices operating in Vietnam and Jamaica. The organization also has a West Coast office in the United States focused on helping the entertainment industry to incorporate themes related to population and reproductive health. PMC has new projects in development in Botswana, China, Democratic Republic of the Congo, the Eastern Caribbean, Egypt, Guatemala, Honduras, Kenya, Madagascar, Malawi, Morocco, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania, Uganda, the Western Pacific, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. PMC has continuation projects in development in Burkina Faso, Côte d'Ivoire, Mali and the Philippines.

Two year’s ago, our readers were very generous in donating DVDs to Bethesda’s recovering service members. Last year JOTW and DEFCON-1 helped buy 155 portable DVD players. This year’s donation will be “wheelchair” accessible.

*** How much:

Hi Ned,

What are your rates for posting a comm job on JOTW?

KH

(Your Job of the Week listing can be posted in the next issue (Monday morning), along with the other 50 to 100 job opportunities. The newsletter will then be posted at www.nedsjotw.com. To submit a job, send the listing to lundquist989@cs.com. This is a free service.

If you want to immediately push your job listing – by itself – out to the network of nearly 10,000 professional communicators, I can send it out as a “Can’t Wait” posting for $300 for highest impact and instant results. “Can’t Wait” postings are also posted to the website, and can also be posted in the next newsletter for maximum exposure. This gives your posting the highest impact.

Listings should include job title, organization or company, and a location. A brief description is optional, and a really long description is frowned upon. Include a link, contact info or specific instructions for a candidate to follow-up.)

*** This is the way I sing it, too:

*** Courtesy, please:

Welcome back Ed.

Just want you to know, i enjoy your weekly and value that the job listings

are not 'just listings'. And as an “in- market” executive, feel confident

that when answering listing that specific person has asked to be put on the

weekly, at the very least, courtesy response would be the norm.

So, what if I told you that someone who sent in a listing, with a special

note to you, hasn't even had the courtesy to return 2 email inquiries?

I had thought caliber of people using this tool would be of higher class in

the way that they communicate with other professionals!

Hope you had a wonderful vacation.

Best regards,

Nina

*** From Terry Anzur:

Hi all,

I've been consulting the government TV and radio news operations in the Maldives. It's been fascinating because most of the reporters, anchors and producers are barely out of high school. This “student” newscast happens to be the network for an entire country.

Everyone here learns English, beginning in first grade, and the Ministry of Information is launching a new “parliamentary channel” with the goal of providing some news and public affairs programming in English. The country is having its first democratic election this year, probably in August.

So here's the deal: they are looking for a team of native English speakers to come to Maldives for a three to six month commitment, starting June 1. They will provide transportation, living expenses and a small stipend. You might even get to visit some of the world-famous resorts. It could be the adventure of a lifetime for a small group of three to six grad students or advanced undergrads and an advisor. They have DV cameras, AVID and all the toys, but you have to be creative and willing to take a practical, hands-on approach to putting on a news/talk show for one to three hours a day. You can use video generated by TVM as well as Reuters. I wish I could do this myself, but I have other commitments in June and July. I plan to return to Maldives for the election and will be able to help supervise.

I am blogging about the maldives media training project at: http://terryanzur.blogspot.com/

Anyone interested in making a proposal? Please email me off list at Terryanzur@yahoo.com.

Regards,

Terry
