How I can help you
My background is 35 years of experience in corporate marketing, creative services, brand development and visual identity, public relations and product publicity with intensive industry experience in professional services, consumer products and higher education. I look forward to helping you in branding and marketing your business and helping you establish an online presence. I retired in January 2012 and now devote my time to writing (see my blog https://nancybishopsjournal.com/) and volunteering for SCORE. I'm editor and publisher of Third Coast Review (thirdcoastreview.com), a Chicago arts and culture website, as well as a theater and art critic. I formerly was arts and culture editor and theater critic for Gapers Block, a now defunct Chicago-centric website. I spent five years managing a creative services group at Mayer Brown LLP, a large global law firm. Before that I worked for 20+ years at A.T. Kearney, a global management consulting firm, where I held various positions in public relations, marketing and creative services. I was director of thought leadership marketing, including managing the commercial publication of books on management and leadership, written by management consultants. As an executive speechwriter, I wrote speeches and articles dealing with corporate leadership topics. I worked in previous jobs in public relations at KFC (formerly Kentucky Fried Chicken), Montgomery Ward and three public universities. My mentoring location is the LGBT Chamber of Commerce in the Lakeview neighborhood of Chicago.
