We can work with you to define the overall communication strategy for your company or yourself or assist with the execution of it. We truly strive to be your external communication advisory.

All our advisory services are provided through either one-on-one or small groups meetings. These sessions can be done in-person, over the phone or via the Internet. The format depends upon the nature of the project. This work is conducted exclusively by our senior staff all of whom are veterans in the communication industry.

With more than twenty years of experience in the fields of public relations, investor relations and corporate communication, Ms. Lancioni has experienced and counseled clients on nearly every facet of the communication industry. During this time, she has worked as a journalist, a public/investor relations executive and as a college professor.

In the early-1990s, Ms. Lancioni worked as a journalist for a variety of trade and business publications including Ziff-Davis’ PC Sources, PC Magazine and Crain’s New York Business.  After several years in journalism, she moved into the public relations arena.

Since the mid-1990s, Ms. Lancioni has worked with dozens of blue-chip and emerging companies in designing and implementing their corporate communication programs. Her clients have included: Analog Devices, Creditsafe, Deloitte Touche, Forbes, Hoover's, IBM, Iridium, IntelliSpace, LookSmart, Monroe Litho, NCR, PanAmSat, Prysm, Renewable Choice Energy and UPS. This work has ranged from press/investor relations to media training, presentation training, branding, corporate strategy, crisis communication and merger communication.

From 2001 to 2006, Ms. Lancioni served as Vice President of Corporate Communication and Investor Relations of PanAmSat where she directed the communication and investor relations programs for the $3 billion global satellite operator. Reporting directly to the CEO, she led the Company's global communication efforts through a variety of scenarios as it was publicly traded, privately held and acquired during her tenure. Ms. Lancioni was one of the Company’s top spokespersons to the media, as well as to Wall Street analysts. She also took the company public on the NYSE.

After PanAmSat was acquired in 2006, Ms. Lancioni formed Communication Insights-a communication consultancy focused on helping small to medium sized businesses navigate the world of public relations and marketing.
