*** One Paragraph Pitch:

It’s been a few months since I parted company with my long-term employer after declining to join the firm’s headquarters relocation. Since then, I’ve recharged the batteries, gotten some long-delayed travel out of my system and am chomping at the bit to find my next professional challenge. Please consider my attached one-paragraph pitch.

Mike Dickerson – I am an award-winning, results-driven senior public relations practitioner with extensive experience in national and international media relations and virtually all facets of corporate communications. As corporate director, media relations, for a Fortune 200 technology firm, I built an outstanding record of achievement in leading global media relations activities to enhance and protect the organizational reputation. I worked closely with all levels of senior management to deliver effective communications strategies, manage disclosure of material and corporate information, and build the brand globally. I have extensive crisis communications experience and served as the company's chief spokesperson to the media for more than a decade. I am also an accomplished outdoor author, publication editor and photographer. As a highly motivated, strategic-thinking self-starter, I have much to offer my next employer. I’m willing to relocate for the right opportunity (emphasis on western/southern U.S.), with special interest in the technology, defense and outdoor sectors, although I will consider a broad range of opportunities. Please e-mail me at mtd1@roadrunner.com or call 805-495-3560.
