What’s Inside Triangle Comms about anyway?
This blog is here to give you the scoop (or at least some of it) on the PR, marketing, advertising and communication industry in Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill and surrounding areas.
Who is that blogger man?
It’s me, Patrick O’Neil. I’m a seasoned corporate and marketing communication executive who’s fascinated with people and communications.
Over the last 20 years, I’ve had the privilege to work with folks from every point on the spectrum – race car drivers, hamburger company mascots, mommy bloggers, septuagenarian ironman nun triathletes (seriously), roofers, mortgage brokers, vacation rental car company execs, airlines mechanics, organ donor counselors, public health specialists, university chancellors, information scientists, airplane coffee maker manufacturers, education innovators, railroad engineers, Olympic athletes and executives of every stripe I practice in the corporate arena, but also have edu-creds from the UNC School of Journalism and Mass Communication, Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University and East Carolina University.
I also run a LinkedIn group for professionals in the area – Triangle PR and Marketing Professionals. If you’re in the Triangle area and not a member, request an invite and we’ll work something out.
Who is that blogger lady?
It’s Carol Steckbeck. She’s is an independent PR pro with clients in the nonprofit and transportation sectors. Her expertise includes strategic planning, writing, media relations, website content management, social media and event management. She’s worked with firms, agencies and clients in Washington, D.C. and New York (and worked for a former member of Congress). Originally from upstate New York, she now calls the Triangle home.
And we’re damn glad to have her here with her family.
