*** One Paragraph Pitch:

Hi Ned,

I would like to have a One Paragraph Pitch posted.

I have 20+ years of experience in corporate communications, marketing communications and marketing. My most recent positions have been in corporate communications management in financial services (Wells Fargo) and telecommunications (Qwest Communications). I am not tied to a particular industry, just looking to stay in corporate communications. I would like to stay in the Phoenix area. My specialties are employee communications, change communications, executive communications and publications. I would appreciate any leads or job ideas. I also have an MBA in International Business.

Thank you!

*** From Alice Ducq:

Dear Sir:

I take extreme exception to your so called JOTW 13 Add 1 OPP “contributor.” This individual is a fraud, and you are to be severely chastised for contributing to the spread of Client Number Nine's false claims and invented credentials. He has exactly zero-point-zero-zero experience with yard work, unless you call chucking empty Schlitz cans toward the compost pile “yard work.” Nor can he be credited with a “good personality.” He's a creep; the family dog won't let him feed her. Our clergyman no longer accepts his calls.

To be completely fair, one statement can be substantiated by credible parties with whom he still may claim a close familial tie: he does, in fact, need to get out of the house. The court order I currently hold in my hand states as much.

Shame on you, Mr. Lundquist. I await your apology.

It is with disappointment, and an aggrieved heart, that I sign myself,

“The soon-to-be-former Mrs. Client Number Nine”

P.S. Please advise ETA for the next installment of KISS. Thank you in advance for your consideration and your prompt compliance.

*** From Elena Turner:

Ed – I've cried all my mascara off! Too funny.

Ned — I know you are going to get plenty of angry emails from people who “take offense” to your humor or are unhappy with you “junking up their inbox”. This is not one of them. I don't know how you do it, but like last year's April fool's newsletter, this is hillarious. Thanks for putting a smile on my face — and for all you do.

Wow! I've been trying to get my foot in the door at the Center for Obsessive-Compulsive Disorders for years! Are you quite sure the email address is correct? I got 46 “undeliverable” messages, but I'm going to try again…

*** 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


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


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.
