A 20-year technology executive, veteran entrepreneur, and MBA, Douglas O’Bryon has helped launch three technology start-ups and directed multiple product launches, including Personal Computing Environments, which recently went public. An accomplished writer, speaker, and charismatic leader, his expertise spans business strategy, competitive economic and environmental research, trend analysis, and product positioning...but his true love is writing. "Words are my sandbox and my shovel, my canvass and my palette. I love words because they are the simplest, most granular life forms for crafting, inhabiting, animating, and communicating a brand, a message, and an idea. In fact, often, the right word IS the idea. My passion is capturing “lightning in a bottle” for clients – that divine moment of serendipity and euphoria, when the company, the brand, and the product all align to birth a brand new idea and distill a compelling experiential promise for the customer. My words and ideas help clients unleash the full force of their brand messaging through advertising, brochures, websites, business plans, and public relations – advancing profitability, growth, and customer loyalty. With a strong background in a diverse cross-section of industries including biotech, healthcare, alternative energy, software, risk management, regulatory compliance, major media, and consumer products, I offer that rare, unique balance between critical, analytical, and strategic thinking, and unencumbered blue-sky visioning."
