***  One Paragraph Pitch:

 

Angela Lapre 

 

I am an award-winning communications professional with 14 years of experience in both corporate communications and public relations. I have experience working at a Fortune 100 company and have served as a trusted counselor for C-suite executives.

Driven by effective strategic planning, I also possess strong project management skills and have successfully led cross-functional teams on a number of high-profile projects. My experience also includes serving as corporate spokesperson and crisis communications. Unafraid of both developing strategies and executing them, from internal communications to enterprise change management initiatives and beyond, the true enjoyment and dedication I have for my profession is bar none.

I am comfortable working in a number of industries and have served in both PR agencies and in-house internal communications departments and can be a valuable asset in either environment.

 

As a final note, which demonstrates my keen ability to write for a number of different audiences and key stakeholders, I’m pleased to share I have published my first children’s book, “Mika, The Little Snail.”
