JD Thomas

Jade Stragetic Relations, Chief Communications Officer - Public Relations

Picture of JD Thomas

JADE Strategic Relations is built on the idea that public relations is more than just the medium, it’s about the message. It’s about understanding the client’s values, purpose and story; and developing a message that showcases those attributes to reach their potential customers.

The goal of JADE is to bring value at every possible level and be a trusted advisor to it’s clientele. We believe in understanding our clients, providing quality advice and use clear, effective communications to help advance their business. These truths about branding are some of the core principal of Public Relations. It’s not about the logo, it’s not about the colours on the web site, it’s about the experience.

Branding is about the reasons for getting into business and getting the message out to those that you believe will get you. Over several years, JD has worked with companies and helped friends looking to accelerate their company’s success. Many times companies espouse making cosmetic changes in the name of branding; or suggest that Facebook updates and blogging about products in the name of PR and never touch the real heart of what the company is about. By helping distinguish the difference between the medium and the message, and making strategic messaging the core of communication to their audience, these companies have become more accessible and profitable.

JADE Strategic Relations is built on the premise that you are the subject matter expert for your business, we are the communication and branding experts. Let us manage your communications while you manage your business.
