B2B Communications That Make Sense
Introduction

THE PROFESSIONAL ME:

As the owner of DKR Communications, I help businesses — especially those in the B2B technology space — solve the puzzle of how to use traditional and digital communications to achieve revenue goals and grow thought leadership reputations. 

My 20+ years of real-world, hands-on experience includes:
  • Public Relations
  • Content Creation & Marketing Strategy
  • Message Development & Organizational Positioning
  • Internal Communications
  • Executive Communications
  • Media, Speech & Presentation Coaching
  • Social Media & Digital Marketing
  • Writing & Editing

I’d love to help your business meet its goals and solve its communication challenges. Learn more at www.dkrcommunications.com.

THE PERSONAL ME:

  • Always planning the next trip experience.
  • Always searching for the perfect bottle of red wine under $15 (research, research, research).
  • Always looking for an excuse to avoid dusting. 
  • Always having fun with language, grammar and spelling through my Facebook page Word Porn. FYI: Some posts can be a bit naughty. If easily offended by wicked language, you may not want to go there. ;)

Bragging rights
I know how to properly use a semi-colon.

Talking non-fiction stuff here. And the answer is "Well, yes." 
 “Do I need a ghostwriter for my book?” This is a question I am asked frequently by advisors. And the answer is, “no, not necessarily.”  But it does depend on many things, including: 1. Do you have  the time? 2. Would you enjoy doing it? 3. Do you have a natural talent for [...]
