the press members to focus on Mr. Clapton's sincere interest in providing a safe haven for those
needing to restart their lives; not on his "Rock-God-ness"!

Truth and Passion . . .
. . . have been my buzzwords for over twenty years.
I’m a straight-shooter with experience, skills and contacts.
I'll assess the reality of your situation and then carefully design a plan to promote,
advertise and propel your business, product or service to the next level. I’ll
accurately explain how PR works, and doesn’t work. I focus on long-term goals and
write powerful action plans, encompassing big picture vision, and believe public
relations strategies should also consider sales expectations, in addition to creating
industry and consumer buzz. I'll also look at:
How good, effective, necessary is it?
2) The market. Do current trends indicate that what
you have is needed by the target group?
3) How effective is your marketer? That’s me -
