With ten years of experience supporting tech giants and leading Internet and technology initiatives, and another ten years of experience supporting global technology consortia, I’ve expanded my portfolio of services to include an even greater focus on energy efficient technologies.
This includes sustainable information and communications technologies (ICT), the technologies that may help drive the deployment of greener clouds and the development of communications strategies and tactics to help organizations position and differentiate in these areas. – Russ DeVeau
Such an honor to be asked by PR Newswire to participate as an expert in global communications for their first ever webcast focused on communicating across cultures!
I developed my portion of this presentation based on my experience working in London and Paris where I managed global communications for companies and initiatives positioning in international markets.
The presentation serves as a good starting point for any organization looking to communicate messages and drive visibility in markets around the world. – Russ DeVeau
Epic #McFail or social media growing pains?
There are some great lessons from the McDonald’s #McDStories campaign that should be noted by any organization or PR firm looking to leverage social media as part of their overall communications strategy.
Every possible angle – including what could possibly go wrong angles – must be considered and addressed during the campaign planning process.
The substantial – and pretty much negative – press and social media coverage resulting from the McDonald’s #McDStories campaign did spark my interest in taking a look at the McDonald’s Twitter page.
I generally believe the majority of tweets issued by an organization should come from a single enthusiastic voice and help support brand positioning objectives. That doesn’t seem to be the case right now over at @McDonalds.
Perhaps the McDonald’s Twitter team should consider issuing a “Good McMorning!” every now and then. – Russ DeVeau

I use them all and have some very strong preferences and requirements when it comes to search engines and search capabilities.
