Along with my writing and speaking, I've offered private consulting services for about four years, ever since I left my job as an EVP of Social Media for a Top Ten PR Firm. When I worked in PR, I counseled senior-level managers at companies like Gillette, P&G, Merck, HP, Monster and multiple startups for B2B and B2C engagements. Most of my work involved creating marketing and PR strategies based on analyzing genuine sentiment from users in social or other channels to communicate as transparently, effectively, and profitably as possible.
I am also the founder of a non-profit Foundation called, The H(app)athon Project and have an expertise in measuring wellbeing via emerging media and economic metrics. We have recently created a Corporate Workshop for H(app)athon you can learn more about by clicking this link if you/your organization wants to better understand the ROI for making your employees feel happier/more fulfilled at work.
I'm going to be updating this page with links to past/current clients, but wanted to post this in the meantime to let any visitors know I'm always happy to be contacted about my consulting services. You can check out my LinkedIn profile to see the 30+ testimonials I've gotten over the years for my work.
My Core Strengths for Clients:
Strategic Ideation/Strategy - I love a blank page. Especially when I can help clients brainstorm in ways that will bring greatest value to their clients while also exciting them about better defining their brand.
Content Creation - I find the best way to create content is to leverage a client's existing Rolodex. I like to interview their key clients, audience members, and thought leaders in their industry to make them a go-to location for content.
Business Development/Networking - I find when I introduce my clients to my other contacts, I typically am able to get clients speaking engagements or new clients. While I do not specialize in Sales, I do love to connect people/organizations to each other where they'll both mutually benefit from the introduction. This is the best type of development I know.
Research - After writing eight books (three of them ghostwritten) and being a contributing writer for Mashable and The Guardian, I've gotten good at researching with a goal of producing original content that can help establish a client as a thought leader.
PR/Marketing Strategy - As part of any campaign I create, I'm always happy to look at a client's existing Social Media or marketing platforms to make sure any work I help with aligns with existing networks and messaging.
