Some of our tactics in our PR programs:

Personal Branding
We have developed the personal brand of hundreds of leaders through consulting, mentoring and workshops/presentations. We work closely with you to capture what is unique about you as an individual including who you are, what you do and the characteristics that connect you to the people that matter.

Once we have developed your personal brand we use our communications expertise to create quality thought leadership content and then we promote it through traditional PR and social media to drive credibility and profile.
