Communications

Professional summary

WHAT I DO: Matt helps corporations communicate to their internal and external clients in a professional manner that they will appreciate; via video, newsletters, town hall meetings, brochures, emails, and other digital forms of communications. His 22 years of communications experience has helped his clients have a more engaged conversation with their target audiences.

HOW I DO IT: Matt takes the time to get to know his clients and what makes the company special. Then he asks questions to understand what makes the clients employees special. Once he understand that as well as what the client wants the audience to know, think, believe and do he can start working on the communications piece.

Matt’s goal is to insure that client’s have the tools necessary to train their associates, communicating information to them in the most appropriate form. Matt specializes in all types of corporate communications including: Onboarding, Engagement, Training, Employee benefits, Informational meetings, OSHA, Change Messaging, Sales meetings and Labor Relations videos.

Matt knows how to engage, educate, and even entertain employees. Matt’s videos and learning processes are proven effective. Even so, Matt constantly researches new ways to improve communications and training methods to insure the best possible return on investment for his clients. Why else would such a broad mix of companies consult with him on training and communicating key messages to their employees? His extensive experience has taught him that continuous communication with employees, keeping everyone “in the loop” if you will, not only helps maintain high morale, but can mitigate any potential problems should they arise.

Engagement overview

I like to have a face to meeting with the client so I can meet the key players and consult with them.  I also find it invaluable to see the audience we are talking to.  This meeting typically takes anywhere from 4 to 8 hours.  Once the meeting is completed I write up my notes and provide a proposal our outline of what I think we want to accomplish and the best way to accomplish it.  Once this is signed off on I go into production mode and start working on the communication project.  I give the client lots of opportunities to give input and progress checks.  Since I don’t like surprises I don’t want my client to have a surprise either.
