Communications Consulting & Business Development

I work with various partners and together we can assist in many different ways, including: 

  • Branding, marketing communications & storytelling, with an experienced editor's eye.  
  • Media relations, copywriting & PR assistance, helping multinational firms via established agencies such as EMG in the Netherlands. 
  • Content creation -- I'm writing for UL Prospector,  and the Society of Plastics Engineers' Plastics Engineering magazine. I'm also now serving as managing editor of Plastics Engineering magazine.
  • Connecting with design and innovation strategy firms that can help drive product development and go-to-market approaches -- here and in China, via my partner CBi China Bridge and its Successful Design Awards program.  
  • Managing social media efforts for Messe Dusseldorf's interpack 2017 & K 2016 trade shows. 
  • Conference organizing and promotion, for groups such as the Plasticity Forum, China's Successful Design Organization, SPE and IDSA
  • Facilitating penetration into the high-barrier, high-reward healthcare and pharma packaging sectors, via my partner Peter Schmitt at his firm, Montesino Associates. I also assisted Montesino in organizing its "Tuesday Night at the Drake" event during Pack Expo 2016 in Chicago.
