If your organization wants the guidance of an experienced marketing professional but it's not quite ready for a full-time, senior-level marketing leader, then you're like many of my other clients. Others hire me because they want an outside perspective on their marketing and research strategies, but they are not interested in retaining an agency. This is my niche.

Based in Knoxville, I've served clients throughout North America and Europe for more than 20 years, in industries that range from IT/telecommunications and healthcare to real estate development and professional services. My clients want to engage their customers in conversations that spread the word, improve their products and recruit exceptional people.

My blog (http://catheycommunications.com/blog) reveals my perspective on public relations, media relations, crisis communications and corporate communications.

Finding solutions for your business starts with listening, so let's have a conversation about what you'd like to accomplish and the communications opportunities that can help get you there.
