I specialize in language and persuasion. For many years I provided marketing communications in organizations and agencies which included content and copywriting, public relations, campaign ideations and strategies, and social media. I like helping others communicate well.
I’ve also led teams, managed departments, and taught and coached teams and managers. But I also have a heart for seeing individuals flourish. So in 2014, I left a senior communications position to head out on my own so I could assist not only organizations but individuals as well. Today I work with clients to:
✦ Makeover and revitalize resumes, LinkedIn profiles, cover letters, and other career-branding documents into modern marketing collateral designed to persuade and differentiate.
✦ Provide job search and interview coaching and strategies by staying up to date on current job search trends, strategies, and career conventions.
✦ Conduct certified DISC behavior/temperament assessments and coachings/trainings/presentations for understanding the individual temperament types in the context of work, teams, and leadership. (In other words, I help people understand people!)
✦ Conduct "I Said This, You Heard That" workshops/classes for churches and ministry organizations for understanding the temperaments in the context of personal relationships, communications, parenting, and marriage and premarital enrichment.
✦ Provide social media ghostwriting and management and other marketing communications services to organizations.
Presentation and workshop topics include:
• DISC Temperaments/Behaviors for Teams & Individuals
• Temperaments/Behaviors for Churches & Ministries
• Winning Social Media Strategies
• Building Strategic LinkedIn Profiles
• Leveraging Social Media for Your Job Search
• Writing a Better Resume
• Strategies for a Modern-Day Job Search
Let me know how I might assist you.
