JTPR Inc. is a full-service public relations and marketing firm that develops and implements communications campaigns that get results. Quick studies who can hit the ground running on nearly any subject, Jen and John Thomas specialize in simplifying complicated subjects and communicating clearly with the audiences that matter.

COMMUNICATIONS STRATEGY
Identifying your objectives and the actions needed to reach them.
Our proven process not only helps you identify your communications objectives and the strategies and tactics that will help you achieve them, but it also has proven to be an eye-opening experience for leaders and their teams, helping them identify gaps in mission awareness, disconnects among silos and unrealized assets. As such, it tends to do more than simply help you plan communications -- it helps you build a stronger organization.

COMMUNITY RELATIONS
Driving positive change
When a historic church in Cumberland was on the verge of being torn down, the Town of Cumberland turned to JTPR to save the structure. As she has done on countless projects across the state, Jen helped organize public meetings, connected Town officials with the right people and organizations, and drove a traditional and social media campaign that raised awareness throughout the area. Today, that same church -- once at risk of being replaced with a gas station and convenience store -- remains standing, poised to become part of a senior housing project. Jen can bring that same experience to your initiative, whether it's focused on a neighborhood or the entire state.

WRITING SERVICES
Putting your words, uhm, into words
Often, you know what you want to say, but can't find time to organize your thoughts and put them into words. Or maybe you write well for your role, but writing an engaging speech, op-ed, stakeholder letter or other key document isn't your thing. Or maybe that annual report, employee-engagement piece or other essential organizational document is just one task too many for you or your team. JTPR delivers by understanding your organization and your communication need, putting together the right words for what you need to achieve, and doing it all in your "voice." If you'd like some samples, let us know ... but we'll also mention that you've probably already read some of our work on op-ed pages, in corporate reports and more ... it's just that it carried someone else's "signature."

MEETING FACILITATION
