at the Right Speed

Whether you’re a multinational corporation or a startup at the edge of success, your relationship with the media can often feel overwhelming. I can help you learn the ins and outs of working with the media, what to expect and provide a roadmap to creating a strong media relationship. My experience in the news industry means I know what journalists are looking for in a story, and I know how to provide answers that satisfy their needs while keeping you on brand. This is media coaching from an insider’s perspective.


With your reputation on the line, you can’t afford to wait to get ahead of the story. I can help calm the communication waters during a crisis. Learn how to manage any crisis with proactivity, transparency and accountability. Between policy miscommunication, departmental misinformation and the speed of modern escalation, you need a trained professional before, during, and after a crisis.

It’s a tried and true idiom: It’s not always what you say, but how you say it. With inadequate presentation skills, even the best ideas often have a hard time reaching your audience. That’s why I provide communication training and presentation assistance. My goal is to change your organization’s presentations from tired, exhausting slogs through information-dense slides, to stories that are woven organically and capture the attention of your audience. You know your subject and are passionate about your work, now let me help you ignite that same passion in others. 


What’s your point? Can you sum up your business, your project or your issue in a way that is both concise and impactful? Coming up with the strategic plan is only the first step. An Australian research team found that 90% of employees don’t understand their company’s strategic goals.  How those goals are communicated to employees, investors and customers is a critical part of success. Whether it’s internal or external messaging, I can help you refine and simplify. Most importantly, everyone will know your point.  

Poor communication is costing your organization money. Rick’s keynote, Communicating at the Right Speed, is an entertaining and effective way to energize your team or association. It’s a compelling story about a group of good people who achieve something amazing through great communication. Most importantly, your group will leave with several key concepts to improve the way they communicate immediately.
