***  One Paragraph Pitch:

 

Hello Ned and JOTWers! Over the course of my career, I’ve found two great opportunities through JOTW. Needless to say, I am a big fan and I’m hoping the third time is the charm. Are you looking for a communications pro who can see the big picture, but will still sweat the details? Someone who is results-oriented, but also mission-driven and as focused on delivering social value as economic profit? I am a communications strategist and management consultant with 20+ years of experience developing high impact communications and public affairs initiatives within the federal government, corporate, and non-profit sectors. I have a deep passion for working across the boundaries of business, education and the public sector to create positive social and economic impact. My experience and interests span strategic and corporate communications, thought leadership, public and government relations, public policy advocacy, legislative outreach, strategic partnership development, corporate social responsibility, social entrepreneurship, and investor relations. With advanced training and experience in leadership, business strategy, organizational design, training and facilitation, and change management, I am adept at connecting the dots between an organization’s high level strategy and the communications needed to drive its successful implementation. I am currently seeking both consulting and full-time opportunities and am based in New York State. Ideally, I’d prefer remote work, but I’m willing to relocate for a great opportunity. If I’ve piqued your interest, please contact me through LinkedIn (www.linkedin.com/in/amygergely) or directly at acg79@cornell.edu. Thanks for reading! – Amy Gergely, MBA, MSPPM
