COTD: The world's fastest high-speed trains

America's most advanced and fanciest train, the Acela, when moving through Baltimore, needs to slow down 30 mph. The train needs to brake often as it goes around sharp turns and through a tunnel built shortly after the Civil War. For the rest of the world, they enjoy modern trains that move at high speeds and on infrastructure built this century.

Based in Washington, DC, I specialize in thought leader communications and global public policy for public affairs professionals working at the intersection of globalization, disruption, and politics.

Clients hire me to ghostwrite, engage influencer networks, manage media relations, produce events, audit their communications infrastructure, consult on hiring, provide issue briefs and news generating talking points, as well as manage end to end communications projects where I assume a role of project leader and general contractor.

I work independently but provided access to a substantial global network of collaborators with expertise in websites, graphic design, audio, video, polling, data analytics, and research.

Using the latest tactics of an American political campaign with expertise shaped by being a practitioner of global business communications, I help clients tell their story and build trusted relationships with all necessary stakeholders.

Successful communications are all about STOCK = strategy, tactics, organization, consistency, and know-how.
