John Primm

Senior Communications Consultant

 

I am an accomplished communications professional, an internationally award winning television producer and a seasoned counselor and communications advisor to executives.  I have successfully reached diverse audiences; junior and senior employees, managers at all levels and executives and the public.  The key is in knowing who, where, when and what is needed—and then doing it. I work with my client’s to create and shape their  messages— I believe that communications plans should be all-encompassing, using every possible methodology and platform —evolving and growing until success is ensured. Social Media is another tool in my box to gather information and to disseminate your messages. As a deadline driven manager and leader I will use my extensive experience in crisis communications and team building abilities to meet the specific objectives you seek whenever you need them, whether you need it a few hours from now or a year down the road.   I also hold a current TS clearance.
