let rich smith drive your next conversation

You're launching a new product. R&D costs, out the wazoo. Down deep in the pit of your stomach, something tells you the supporting PR/ad campaign will bomb. Big time. Buh-bye, upbeat ROI expectations. Or maybe instead you're revving up an outreach to investors. So, where are you? Tossing and turning in bed at night over the prospect that the big money guys won't be enticed by a word you're saying. Possibly you're looking to restore reputation following an avalanche of bad press. Perhaps there's a crucial sales push coming. A muy important trade show. An invitation to give testimony before Congress. Whatever it might be, of this you're certain — everything's riding on it. If so, then it's time to put RICH SMITH on your communications team, front and center. Contact Rich Smith by email at and tell him your needs.
