Evaluating Your Life & Appreciating Accomplishments

Public relations and marketing continues to evolve before our eyes, but as members of the public, we can only see these changes from the perspective of a consumer. Today, communications professional Jeanette Brown gives us a peek behind the curtain for a full picture of what it is like to work with a variety of famous brands. We delve into what it means to be successful, and how we should adapt the meaning of success to fit our daily lives 

Jeanette Brown Green Founder of Excellence & Presence Communications - an integrated PR & Marketing Agency providing corporate, lifestyle and non-profit clients with brand development, communications campaigns, culturally relevant programs, crisis communications as well as Diversity, Equity and Inclusion consulting. 

Jeanette is a Brooklyn native whose family tree branches reach the Caribbean, including Trinidad and Tobago and Jamaica. Her appreciation for community, family, and culture developed while growing up in a multi-ethnic neighborhood, Bushwick. The sounds of Latin music filled every bodega, the aroma of exotic dishes infiltrated the air, and everyone was treated like family at celebrations.

Jeanette has led marketing communications strategies for brands like Ketel One Vodka, Maker's Mark, Pisco Portón, Bacardi Global Travel Retail, MillerCoors, Pepsi Global, Audi, Reebok, and many more. She has overseen the development and execution of all channel-neutral communications plans in support of a brand's PR and trade programs in addition to experiential and strategic partnerships.
