"A company that aims to lead in its market must first embrace change."
Mary Eaddy, APR, President
The Wordsmith, Inc.

We believe that organizations should embrace change, because the ability to simply adapt to change is no longer enough. Dynamic corporate leaders must continually initiate, implement and interpret change. They must harness its power to benefit everyone they serve. This is the enduring legacy of great leadership. Public relations is the premier precision tool in engineering change. Great public relations programs start with this four-step process-a RACE to develop and implement a public strategy based on Research, Action, Communication, and Evaluation.

Research The Wordsmith was the first PR firm in Northeastern South Carolina to conduct original research on public issues. Founded in 1989, we have access to nearly two decades of opinion evolution in one of the fastest-growing markets in the nation.

Action Our firm has led dozens of clients in developing effective action plans to earn the respect, consent and patronage of specialized and mass audiences.

Communication We build client power through coalitions and unexpected partnerships, paid and free media, events, endorsements to build trust with the right people.

Evaluation The Wordsmith has helped clients garner more than one billion dollars over the past 17 years in federal, state and local funding; matching corporate grants, and free time and space for clients' causes and corporate messages. But not all results can be measured in dollars. There are other tests. Opinions changed. Attitudes evolved. Beliefs challenged. Dreams realized.
