My name is Darrell S. Pressley and I have three decades of experience as a journalist, public relations executive, and crisis communicator. When you need someone who is experienced in communications, I am the one you call. I’m a calming voice in the midst of chaos, and a subject matter expert when you need to know how all this “communications stuff” works.
I’ll be right there with you before and after your groundbreaking and ribbon cutting. I’m your partner in the situation room; part of your team on the ground; standing with you when the lights are on and when the cameras are off.
I’m invisible when you're on stage, but you’ll know that I’m right there with you. My skill set starts with 10 years as a reporter covering crime, politics, education, and breaking news. I’ve covered the news in Detroit, Cincinnati, Boston and across Kentucky.
For the past 20 years I’ve been a public relations executive, crafting stories that reporters want to cover, creating messages that meet people where they are, and handling crisis communications for government officials, including Commissioners, Judges, Superintendents, and agency Directors in Massachusetts, Maryland and the District of Columbia.
My writing is thought provoking, emotional and authentic. Working together, your messages will be clear, concise, consistent, and will seize the moment.
Whether you’re promoting a business, a new product line, or business model, or if you’re faced with trying to overcome a crisis, when you work with PMG, people will remember you for the quality of who you are and what you do.
PMG will help you change the way you communicate with the world.
PMG provides media training, speech writing, and can serve as your on-the-record spokesperson.

There are Three Keys to Communications:
1) Communications is all about making connections.
2) Communications is about creating a message that is clear, concise, and consistent. And for our clients: authentic. It's your message; and
3) Communications is about telling your story, and not letting other people tell your story for you.
At PMG, we are committed to delivering your message. Your story. Your way.
At PMG, we have learned that when you hear, "You need to tell your story," or "You need to be "proactive," or even what "strategic communications" means to your business. Sometimes you don't know what you don't know.
That's why we offer a free consultation, to help you figure our exactly what type of "Brand Ensurance" you need.
