I've been working in communications for technology companies for almost 20 years. I help B2B and B2G companies bypass the media filter and tell their own stories directly to customers and prospects. By leveraging thought leadership and engaging in conversational marketing, companies can drive brand awareness, support revenue growth and affect public policy.
