*** One Paragraph Pitch:

Aloha Ned,

I have been reading your JOTW newsletter for too many years to count. I

love it and look forward to seeing it in my inbox every Monday morning.

Thanks for all your hard work, creative energy, and social awareness.

On top of all that you have already contributed, I am hoping that you

can help me even more. I have started commuting to Key West, Florida

regularly and don't know anyone there. Perhaps you might include me in

your One Paragraph Pitch. Mahalo in advance.

Here it goes:

I have recently found myself dividing my time between Hawaii and Key

West, Florida and seeking to expand my client base in either location or

a stop in between. I have a long term solid background in all aspects of

communications and public relations management, research and

development, analysis, partnership and event marketing, promotion, and

advertising; all of which resulted in consistent company growth. I have

developed and executed full communications and public relations

strategies, and marketing plans with the goal of advancing professional

relationships, and creating a positive public image. I also served on a

mayoral appointed commission for the Sustainable Santa Fe Commission

assisting with the advancement of existing programs, and the creation of

new ones. These programs encompassed public policy, public outreach and

education, organizing community groups, and research and development.

My experience has provided me with a great and varied amount of skills.

You will find me to be a person who is capable of not only identifying

needs, but of implementing a strategy to meet those needs creatively,

effectively and efficiently with dedication. I have worked in agency and

in-house settings for large corporations and small start-up businesses

across many industries. I am capable of creating and implementing a full

communications plan or working on a project basis on specific strategies

and tactics. Please contact me at debbiehuggett@gmail.com. Thanks for

your consideration!

*** The JOTW Network and the Population media Center's Resource Library

in Addis Ababa:

I met with Bill Ryerson and Dr. Negussie Teffera here in Washington at a

reception at the Population Institute on Capitol Hill (in back of the

Supreme Court). Bill, Negussie and I were talking about the generous

donations made by JOTW ned-workers who sent so books to PMC's Vermont

offices that they simply can't all be carried to Ethiopia as luggage

when Bill or Negussie travel that way. Now there are 12 heavy boxes

awaiting shipment to Addis. Does anyone have a suggestion on how we can

ship all the books from the PMC HQ to the PMC Ethiopia offices in Addis

Ababa? If you have an idea, share with me at lundquist989@cs.com.

*** Introducing Effective Media Training … Online

It's like a teleseminar, only better. The online version of At Ease

With the Media is now available at its own website

(www.AtEaseWithTheMedia.com).

This self-study program provides spokespeople with tools and insights to

manage exchanges with reporters to win-win outcomes, while applying risk

management strategies to protect their reputation and their

organization's.

The program consists of 10 audio-visual modules that vary in length from

four to 13 minutes and cover a range of topics. Each module is

accompanied by a five-question quiz. Spokespeople view the modules and

complete the quizzes. Those who earn a combined score of 45/50 receive

a Certificate of Completion for the program.

“The quizzes serve two purposes,” says Eric Bergman, ABC, APR, who

designed the program and is also author of the train-the-trainer guide

Media Training With Excellence: A Balanced Approach

(http://iabcstore.com/prmediarelations/mediatraining.htm). “First, they

force participants to listen to the information contained in the

modules. Second, they help internalize the concepts taught. Testing

has shown the program to be extremely effective at achieving both ends.”

The modules cover topic areas that include: Managing Polarization;

Working With Reporters; Negotiating the Interview; Print vs Broadcast;

and Managing Risk. “Participants have commented that the 'Managing

Risk' module alone is worth the cost of the program,” Bergman says.

The program is extremely flexible and adaptable. Organizations can

offer all modules to their spokespeople, or only offer specific modules.

The online version can be used as stand-alone training, or offered in

conjunction with “live” training — either in person or via

teleconference.

“The original idea was to bring cost-effective media training to a wide

geographic audience,” says Bergman. “And there is no better program

available for doing that. But beyond that original aim, At Ease With

the Media sets a new standard for media training that helps an

organization's spokespeople create strategic outcomes from their

exchanges with journalists.”

Hey Ned!!!

Why don't you ever visit the lovely state of NJ??!!

New Jersey welcomes you with open arms….!

Keep up the great work!

Best,

Jersey Jessi ;-)

(I can't figure the currency conversion.)

*** I usually bank my USAirways miles on my United Mileage Plus

account. I have enough for a free trip on USAirways, but I have enough

for Premier status on United. But since I am coming up on 18 months

without a “transaction” on US, they tell me I'll lose my miles. So I

decided to try and put the DCA-PHL leg of my recent flight to SFO on US.

But that automatically included the connection. And, since I do not

have elite status on US, they wanted $40 to take my two bags. So I

changed that flight back to my Mileage Plus account so I wouldn't have

to pay.

The CRJ overhead compartment is too small for my laptop backpack, and

since I was in the front row I had to “valet” check it, a convcern

because while the backpack is paqdded, they toss those bags around

loading them and unloading them.

Our flight was late boarding because we the aircraft hadn't arrived.

But once it did they boarded quickly and we were pretty close to leaving

on-time. But we got to Philly and circled for a long time in the clouds

and landed late, enough so I sweated my connection. Of course, my

connection was on the other side of the airport. In fact, I walked up

as the boarding was being completed and was the last to board. Somebody

was in my seat, so I took hers on the opposite side, but that required a

bulky elderly gentleman to have to get up, and that was difficult for

him (and he seemed to convey that too me). Once airborne, he put on his

enormous glasses and read an anthology of poetry to himself, eyes right

next to the pages. Occasionally he would read some aloud to his friend,

and finish, “Isn't that beautiful. Isn't that, just, I mean, it's so

beautiful.”

seems to revolve around them, and their personalities have a kind of

gravitational pull on clients and coworkers. Equally comfortable in

print or new media, they can do it all – plan projects, work directly

with clients, and design anything from an identity to a website. They

turn marketing strategy into killer concepts. And, of course, their

names are on most of the awards.

These people are the best of team players. They don't have oversize

egos, but they know they're good. And the agency knows it too, so

they're treated well. Yet, they eventually move on.

That's where we come in: we are a leading Washington, DC design and

advertising studio that gives top talent everything that they want most

in their work life. That's why our people have turned their positions

into careers, staying with us for an average of a decade and counting.

Great people doing great work on great accounts. Real pros who are

highly respected by their colleagues and clients – and who are

generously rewarded for the success that they create. It's all wrapped

up in a refreshingly sane environment that combines responsibility with

freedom.”

years of experience working consistently as a professional Graphic

Designer in an agency, studio or corporate setting. No exceptions,

please.

*Portfolio that includes at least fifteen samples of design work that

was produced for agency, studio or corporate clients.

DATES & TIMES

seeking a full-time, onsite position. This is a regular (approximately)

9am to 5pm position, and there will likely be some overtime. Please do

not inquire if you are looking to work less than 40 hours each week,

organization's downtown Washington, DC offices.
