Frances Cole Jones founded Cole Media Management in 1997. From the beginning, the companyâ€™s focus has been cultivating clientsâ€™ inherent strengths to develop the powerful communication skills that will enhance their professional and personal performance. The scope of her work includes preparation for television and print interviews, IPO road shows, meetings with potential investors, and internal meetings with partners, sales staff, and in-house personnel. She also provides presentation skills seminars and speechwriting for clients.
Prior to founding Cole Media Management, Frances worked at St. Martinâ€™s Press, Viking Penguin, Doubleday and Broadway Books as an editor of commercial nonfiction. The experience of helping authors translate their ideas into books that retained their unique voice is what makes her valuable to her clients. â€œThereâ€™s no point in my writing a perfectly crafted sound bite that you have to strain to remember,â€ Frances says. â€œYou have to sound like you-you on your best day.â€
Frances has also written for Centurion and Executive Travel.
Frances’ new book, How to Wow: Proven Strategies for Presenting Your Ideas, Persuading Your Audience, and Perfecting Your Image, is available now through booksellers such as Amazon.
