Tom is available to speak about his book, The Secret Sauce for Organizational Success: Communications and Leadership on the Same Page, along with his other communications and leadership experiences. With his background working with the media for his entire professional career, organizations would benefit from his experiences and learn from his nearly 50 years as a professional communicator. In his discussions, he can share examples of:
‘What works’ with the media and ‘what doesn’t
The importance of media access
How to prepare for media interviews
How to be ready for the crisis and when the media come banging on your door
How to convince the head of your organization that he/she needs to be visible and available to the media
