My name's Brent Trotter and I'm a Digital Communications Strategist and Writer. I specialize in solving problems with persuasive communications, particularly with content marketing.

I believe that the key to influence and persuasion is at the fusion of authenticity, storytelling and understanding people.

Most recently, I worked in Account Management at Ogilvy & Mather. I was hired when the agency won the global S.C. Johnson business to help plan, execute and optimize their digital marketing programs.

Previously, I spent some time at iProspect as a Junior Search Marketing Analyst, learning about paid search, SEO and display advertising.

Prior to iProspect, I interned at Edelman Berland where I gained first hand experience conducting corporate secondary research, media analysis and reporting for a range of client from automotive to technology.

In these various roles, I've gained an array of experience managing projects, clients, cross-functional teams and looming deadlines.

My passion for the industry is driven by my desire to greater understand people and words and use that info to solve problems -- ranging from social to interpersonal to commercial.

If you have a problem that you think might best be solved with enhanced communications, shoot me a note and we can chat about what I can do to help.
