Strong writing skills is something that good communicators share with journalists. That’s one reason why some reporters change fields during their careers. What is less common is to find a public relations professional gig as a freelance reporter, but that’s what Colleen did. Working for Crittenden Publishing, Colleen reported for three magazines, PreLaw, the National Jurist and Golf Inc., earning front page covers for a number of her articles. She has also written speeches for executives (one earned a Globe and Mail “speech of note” mention), scripts for videos, presentations and training materials, content for websites and social media campaigns, major municipal plans, reports and so on. Her work has earned her recognition from both the Canadian Public Relations Society and the International Association of Business communicators.
