      Re-introduction time.

      I was here before. I think I've kind of been here all along (at least for
      a long time). But it's been a long time since I got anything from PRB and
      an even longer time since I sent anything along.

      But that's all got to change.

      For those who don't remember me from this list's start or don't know me
      from the other PR lists I haunt, I'm primarily involved in high-tech (think
      Silicon Valley) and healthcare (think hospitals and doctors, not major
      pharma-cos.) public relations and marketing communications. I put in some
      time teaching, adjunct, at a couple of universities, and I've had a few
      books on PR published ... but mostly, I just try to do a good job for my

      I do care passionately about our profession, and about doing a good job for
      my clients (and about getting paid up front). I've worked for big and
      small agencies (if you count Fleishman-Hillard as big and Notch/Bradley as
      small), but I like working for and with myself best. So I network a lot,
      bringing in other independent PR pros when I need help with an account, and
      pitching in to help others when they need my brand of PR services. Some of
      the things I do include:

      Strategy and tactics (PR-Marcom-driven business plans, too)

      Market research (focus groups, online research - and turning them into
      "factoid" coverage among other things)

      Competitive market research ("cockroaching")

      Media Relations (of course)

      White Paper development

      Grass-roots issues advocacy (of conservative issues, mostly)

      Contributed articles and ghost-written books, articles and speeches

      Crisis PR (planning or reacting to crises)

      Non Profit stuff

      PR-driven NFP fund-raising

      Other stuff, too, but that pretty much covers the bases. For 30 years,
      I've specialized in being a generalist; in that time, I've pretty much done
      a bit of everything.

      So that's me. Again. Looking forward to getting to know all of you. Again.
