I HELP BRANDS
THE RIGHT THINGS
THE WORLD MOVES FAST
AND IS NOT FORGIVING.
EVERYTHING YOU SAY
AND DO MATTERS.
IT'S TIME TO STEP UP
YOUR COMMUNICATIONS GAME.
Success comes to those companies which actively carry out the smartest communications protocols and campaigns, done with discipline, strategy, and imagination.
They continuously define their brands with their constituencies and media coverage through creative engagement, strong storytelling, and cultivated relationships.
For over 30 years, I have helped many companies -- from start-ups to some of the biggest global names -- achieve their goals of brand visibility, clarity, and strength, while bringing new revenue streams and productive alliances.
This is more than just public relations. It's a collection of shrewd and powerful communications tactics that leads to healthier, prosperous and authoritative brands.
I WILL HELP YOU
SOLVE THESE CHALLENGES
People have trouble understanding who we are, what we do, and how we do it.
Everybody knows more about our competitors than us.
Our sales staff needs to be smarter and better armed.
We have a publicity crisis on our hands.
Our data should be monetized, but how can it be done?
We want to be thought leaders, but don't know where to start.
Every successful brand has a story. How do we tell ours?
I want to be an effective speaker on panels and to my staff.
We are always the ones giving ideas to our public relations support instead of the other way around.
I want to meet more interesting people who are my peers.
ENGAGEMENTS + TESTIMONIALS
"Impactful, well-connected and relationship focused, experienced, and a consummate professional. Drew is truly the best PR and comms professional I've ever worked with."
-- Christina Hungspruke
CMO, MarketView Research
"There are simply too many positives to provide about him. However, the net net is that he is a partner in the truest sense of the word, he loves the field of PR and Communications and is excellent at coaching individuals as it relates to stage presence at public appearances. I could not be more appreciative of his contribution to our collective success."
-- Keith A. Grossman
"During our nearly ten years of working together, Drew's press placements resulted in many inbound inquiries from Fortune 1000 companies, which resulted in millions of dollars in incremental revenue. He delivered our research in a way that helped to make our business successful and raised our reputation as a major player in the research and insight industry."
-- Ted Marzilli
CEO, YouGov Direct
"Drew has been a pleasure to work with and instrumental in helping with our communication efforts in such a critical phase of the company. I have personally benefited greatly from his guidance, advice, and support during our time working together."
-- Michael Bologna
My clients see me as a trusted and plainspoken adviser. Strategic coach and teacher (one calls me his "third base coach!"). Organizer, speaker, and relationship creator.
It is second nature to me to engage clients with their external and internal roles, as well as grow the voice of their brands in creative productive ways. It's about taking advantage of brand assets for impression and revenue-building purposes.
After several years at CBS and Radio City Music Hall Productions, I opened up my own communications consultancy to help founders and C-suite executives shape their visions -- sometimes from scratch. I orchestrated the communications behind successful launches at Hearst, Dow Jones, CBS, Future, Dennis Publishing, The Able Channel, and Hyphametrics, while creating franchise events, many of which continue to this day.
I write commentaries about communications strategies and best practices for AdAge, Dow Jones Marketwatch, and Mediapost.
In October 2018, I was lucky enough to be chosen to tell a story in front of a live audience for The Moth.
My online photojournalism exhibition, Queens Chef Project, launched in January 2022 and was featured in the New York Times. The project helped me earn the Queens Centers for Progress "Spirit Of Community" Award.
I spent many years delivering workshops and mentoring first-generation students at LaGuardia Community College.
I live in New York City, but go everywhere for my clients.
