In short, Dawn Bryant is a fanatical communicator who loves helping others be great.
After more than 11 years in corporate America, she leaped out of her comfort zone and launched Simplicity Communications and Consulting in 2009. Dawn believes too many people and organizations either over-think communications, or gloss over it. She’s seen great communicators and great communications strategies strengthen organizations and individuals; she’s also watched bad communicators and ill-developed strategies unintentionally damage reputations.
Helping others be genuine and effective communicators is a healthy obsession for Dawn. She coaches clients by asking hard questions, understanding audiences, learning different perspectives and building relationships that strengthen business, non-profit and personal brands. She is a thoughtful and accomplished strategist known for insightful counsel, critical thinking and bringing a human face and voice to organizations in good times, and in seasons of crisis. She believes credibility and authority come from humanness, openness and simple communications, and that those things only mean something if you stay true to who you are as an individual and as an organization.
Her 13 years of experience includes expansive work in public relations for large technology and entertainment retailers (Best Buy Co., Inc. and The Musicland Group), and unique projects for individuals, small businesses, start-ups, non-profits and churches.
Hundreds of individuals at all levels of organizations (CEO to individual contributor) have experienced her training and counsel. Those people have gone on to give powerful speeches, effective presentations and successful news media interviews (including The Wall Street Journal, Time, BusinessWeek, Fast Company, Seventeen, ABC World News Tonight, NBC Nightly News, 60 Minutes and NPR). She’s also prepared dozens of crisis plans, and successfully managed uncountable, potentially damaging issues (including one recognized by the FBI as exceptional work).
Dawn is a wife, a mom to a darling Jack Russell Terrier, a pastor, a church planter, a volunteer, a foodie, a news junkie and an all-around communication-crazed lover of friends, family and God.
