Unseen, inquisitive, confounds himself.”

***  One Paragraph Pitch:

 

Is your business doing great work but nobody knows about it? Are you using language your prospective customer can understand? Can they appreciate the value you bring to their bottom line?

 

Communicating the right way to the right market at the right time is how I help mid-to large-sized businesses market themselves and grow. As an award-winning writer and media relations consultant, I’ve worked to increase visibility for my clients by communicating with impact, clarity and effectiveness.

 

With more than 20 years experience, I’m an expert in writing and managing a wide variety of marketing communications projects, with specialties in the aerospace, credit union, manufacturing and technology industries.  One of my most valued skills is the ability to understand a wide variety of complex information and translate it into reader-friendly copy for broad audiences, and media story placements that increase visibility for my clients.

 

Long-time clients say I always exceed expectations in every assignment. Past employers credit me with outstanding initiative and willingness to do whatever is necessary to reach communications goals, expertly balancing high quality and cost-effectiveness.
My typical clients are businesses who are growing and/or large enough to invest in marketing or those who need help executing existing marketing programs. I’m new to the Denver area and actively looking for local contract and part-time assignments.

***  JOTW Community Conversation:

 

While enjoying a proper Sunday afternoon pub meal with Gloria Walker, we came up with a good idea.  Using the power of this network, we want to plan a JOTW community conversation—perhaps a global “chat” discussion over a 48 hour period (so people could come and go depending on where they are in the world).  The subject could be something such as “What is the future of our profession?”  It would be like going to a roundtable discussion, but virtual, sort of global, yes, that’s it, global, so a reeeaallly round table.

 

Stand by for details…although I’m open now to any suggestions as to format, method or subject matter.
