Who I am. I’m Edward Klink. At heart I’m a marketing and communications professional. Today I’m a marketer and knowledge manager for one of the world’s largest professional services firms. I have a knack for breaking down complex topics and delivering them in creative ways that get measurable results.
What I do. I’ve worked in start-ups and Fortune 500 companies and over the past 10 years I’ve created hundreds of marketing resources and led multimedia programs covering niche marketing, branding, business development, motivation, networking, social media, client psychology, team-building and success for boutique financial services firms to Wall Street corporations.
My experience. My background is a mixed blend of multimedia journalism and training grounded in two decades of real-world on-the-job experience. Sectors I’m familiar with include technology, financial services, public policy and regulatory reform, and organizational change and development. Much of my work takes place at a desk, but it doesn’t mean I sit still. From auditioning for Donald Trump for The Apprentice, or driving a truck with relief supplies to Gulfport, I’ve been known to tackle offbeat challenges. I also have an intense interest in the fast-changing world of multimedia publishing and and how they can solve evolving business challenges.
Who I’ve learned from: On the academic side I have a masters degree from Stevens Institute of Technology, and a BA from Seton Hall University. I’m also a graduate of the Securities Industry Institute leadership program at Wharton. I have learned from co-workers, bosses and subordinates as well as clients and competitors. Reading is a lifelong passion, I’m always in the middle of several books. I particularly enjoy stories based on real-life tales of perseverance and achievement. I’d love to hear what you’re reading.
