Portfolio

Professional Profiles

image1

A profile tells who you are, what you provide and why others should think of you when they need the services you offer. Bio-style pieces and LinkedIn profiles help attract customers or secure new jobs.

Newsletters

image2

Newsletters connect associates within organizations or across geographic operations. The end-product should reflect brainstorming of topics, content writing, design and collaboration. 

Business Stories

image3

For a B2B organization seeking growth through acquisitions, sellers' stories have been an effective way to attract prospects or start conversations with business owners considering retirement or a transition. 



Podcast Previews

I'm proud to contribute columns to Startland News, a Kansas City-based online  publication covering entrepreneurism and innovation. My posts cover select marketing, business and lifestyle podcasts. 

Retirement Planning

image5

Financial literacy is sorely lacking. A  client project was an opportunity to write 75+ summaries of financial professionals' conversations about retirement planning, a topic we all must embrace in time. 

Blog Writing

image6

Blog writing helps establish credibility. My experience working  in multiple roles and industries, along with an ability to understand others' businesses, allows me to write in relatable terms on clients' behalf.

Branding

image7

Crafting a brand promise and beliefs tells others what they can expect from working with you.  This example has timeless information about an organization that promotes workplace disability inclusion.

LinkedIn Profiles

image8

A well-written LinkedIn profile includes a summary of professional accomplishments, community involvement, honors and off-work interests. It helps others feel they know you before you ever meet.

Recognition

image9

Through relationship-building and targeted asks, I've placed clients in the media as guests and thought leaders to increase their visibility and recognition in the communities where they live and work.

Website Content

image10

In a search-first market, helping product or service providers concisely state their offerings is highly beneficial. This  project complements the client's LinkedIn profile, which I also wrote.

Event Awareness

image11

Since 2003, Head for the Cure has raised $10 million for brain cancer research. Connecting with survivors and getting their stories told through print, TV and radio is among my most gratifying work.

Trade Publications

image12

Whether for print or digital, trade publication articles take on an advertorial appearance, allowing sponsors to conversationally inform or engage readers about the services they offer.

Website Creation

image13

I built a site to provide visibility to an alternate business of mine, communicate its Brand Promise and describe the available services. I can do the same for other service providers.

TV Appearance - KC Live

image14

This appearance by the CEO of Kansas City-based Global Orphan Project helped draw 800 volunteers on a Saturday to create 100,000 meals for families in crisis across the world.

Tutor Doctor Blog Post

image15

For a Toronto-based, global franchisor of tutoring services, I draw on my experience as a student and parent to regularly blog about the benefits of education.

Scriptwriting

Sponsorship of a trade show's keynoter - sportscaster Greg Gumbel - was a CEO's opportunity to inform attendees about his company and to creatively connect Greg to the  industry. Image credit -  LP Gas Magazine.

Direct Marketing

image17

Direct Marketing starts conversations that generate  leads or sell a product or service. This B2B execution boldly announced both a geographic expansion and the buyer's value proposition to prospective acquisitions. 

Testimonial Print Ad

image18

A print ad featuring endorsements from happy stakeholders can not only convey trust and satisfaction, but also be the spark that moves prospects to call, send an email or go online to learn more - and connect.

Panel Moderator

image19

Moderating a panel discussion is an excellent opportunity to educate an audience, think on your feet and keep a lively conversation moving. I've done this several times for The Freelance Exchange of Kansas City.

Panel Participant

I was honored to represent The Regnier Institute for Entrepreneurship and Innovation at 2018's Global Entrepreneurship Week, speaking about mentoring to an audience of early-stage venture entrepreneurs.
