What does that mean to be a Communications Specialist?
To start with, someone who is a storyteller – because if you can’t capture the ear and attention of your audience, you’re in the wrong professional.
Equally important is to be an engaging writer, creative thinker, strategist, great listener, project manager and so on. These days you also have to be at the cutting edge with social media and other aspects of digital communications, have a graphic artist’s eye for design, be an expert with InDesign, Photoshop and other software tools and it doesn’t hurt to be skilled in photography and multi-media.
Hey! That sounds like me.

In a nutshell, I’m a Jack-of-all-Trades with an eye for detail and a view of the big picture. What that means for my clients is I bring everything to the table – the skills, experience and knowledge, vision and strategy.
And with a changed communications landscape – weakening of traditional media, growth of social media and digital democracy and the rapid increase in the mobile web – we need every advantage we can get to be heard above the rest.
