Communications Consulting & Business Development

what we do.

  • I organized & moderated a first-time design conference -- Design in Plastics 2016 -- in Providence for the Society of Plastics Engineers, and we held it again at CCS in Detroit in Nov. 6-8, 2017. For more than a year, I served as managing editor of SPE's monthly Plastics Engineering magazine, and I now am editor of The Journal of Blow Molding for SPE's Blow Molding Division. 
  • I work with the EMG PR agency in Europe, helping manufacturing & materials companies to build their brands and tell their stories.  
  • I partner with Plasticity Forum founder Doug Woodring to organize and moderate this sustainability-themed plastics conference. 
  • My colleagues at Montesino Associates  have the expertise to help companies develop business in the pharma and packaging sectors. 
  • Shanghai-based CBi China Bridge is the leading design strategy & innovation firm in China, working with many top brand owners. Together, we can help you successfully introduce products & services to the China market. Its nonprofit sister organization, meanwhile, hosts the Successful Design Awards in Shanghai.  
  • I also moderate the LinkedIn groups for Messe Duesseldorf's huge Interpack 2020 show, and for its K 2019 fair, the world's largest plastics show.
