Thanks Michigan Chronicle for a great story on the front page of your website about our event last Saturday — No Baby Left Behind: SIDS Risk Reduction Workshop. We want to make sure every baby has a safe place to sleep and live to be one-year old and beyond.

One of my favorite activities in public relations is creating good key messages. It’s the first thing I create – either with the client or without. Otherwise, it feels like everyone is working in a silo, instead of singing from the same hymnal.
Your key messages are the foundation for your 30-second elevator speech. If you can’t explain who you are, what you do and why in 30-seconds or less, and in turn, receive an affirmative nod from the person you’re talking to, then you’ve missed your opportunity to tell your story or at least interest them enough to find you through Google or on Facebook.

This group of Kappa men are 100% committed to promoting health and wellness in our communities. As members of the Healthy Kappas-Healthy Communities Committee, they’re putting in the extra hours executing a variety of health-related programs impacting communities across the country. The Global Infant Safe Sleep (GISS) Center and Thornhill Communications assisted this team in developing their 2017 Strategy over a weekend, setting goals relative to the health priorities and disparities affecting African Americans, and how men, in particular, can make a difference in reducing infant mortality and other initiatives. Nice job, gentlemen!
The book is out on Amazon and it’s a BESTSELLER! I worked with CleRenda McGrady and the team at DP Marketing Strategies as editor of Mrs. McGrady’s first book, Push Thru! Redefine and Create Your Own Success Story with forward by her husband NBA star Tracy McGrady. It was an exciting journey. I promised her we would cross the finish line — and we did.
McGrady has a powerful message for woman about the importance of finding your purpose and identity on your own terms and creating your own success story. Many women have ideas, dreams and desire that they carry deep inside, but never pursue. They’re searching for the identity as they carry out the duties of being wives, daughters, mothers or more.
Thornhill Communications along with Motor City Media Group worked with the team of ATT&T employees responsible for granting the wishes of children who have life-threatening or chronically debilitating medical conditions.
