You’re only as good as your reputation.
It’s easy to be the tooter of your own horn, but it takes a band to make real music. Here’s what others have to say about my work:
“Cedric Brown was introduced to me a few months ago as a new writer. I have been very impressed with Cedric’s work as well as his professionalism. My organization feel that we have found a person who can really help us get the identity that we need to our message out. I feel Mentoring Youth Network will work with Cedric for a very long time.”
“Mr. Brown has done two media releases for our organization and they were Meals on Wheels and Project: Warm Detroit. WWJ news radio reported on our Meals on Wheels event which was held Thanksgiving morning. Working for us on another event which was Project: Warm Detroit, Cedric’s amazing writing was picked up by a reporter from the Detroit News online edition. Our children were interviewed by the Detroit News and when they saw their names in the newspaper it made them feel very special for one day. Because of Cedric’s hard work and professionalism shows that he has what it takes to change lives.”

“If you meet Cedric Brown, there will be several things about him that will impress you. Cedric Brown is definitely a young marketing professional who handles himself well. Plus, he really cares about finding ways to make his community better.
Cedric has formal marketing knowledge, and he has emotional maturity beyond his years. He is a young man, but he already seems to understand how important it is to remain calm during seemingly stressful events. He takes the initiative to get more marketing experience by involving himself in different organizations around the City of Detroit, and he accepts various leadership roles within those organizations. He finds ways to market these groups, including promoting events.
Cedric Brown gave me a personalized consulting session for submitting press releases to offline resources, like local community newspapers, daily papers, and magazines. He’s done this before for himself and different organizations he represents. He gave me some great tips about ways to find different media contacts and get their attention—the right type of attention. His customer service is better than many other consultants, too. A week after the session, he gave a follow-up call, asking whether I had a chance to apply any part of his lesson and if I had any other questions.
Cedric created a press release template for me to use, and the template looks great. I’ve already used it to submit something for an upcoming event I am promoting.”

“Cedric served as my research assistant on the National Black Public Relations Society grant. He was a dedicated and professional assistant. He went over and beyond the call of duty, giving great ideas, presenting research and helping us to meet deadlines. I hope to work with him again on projects.”
