Good communication is essential to your success and all you hope to accomplish. It has to be authentic to who you are and thoughtfully integrated into everything you do.

Testimonial from Pete Taft

“It’s very rare to meet someone in the communications game who really and truly ‘does it all’ — thinking, strategizing, problem-solving, writing, persuading, leading. Ted is one of them. What’s more, he delivers those goods in such a cool, calm and reassuring way, it makes working with him an absolute pleasure. I can’t think of a pro I’d rather have by my side than Ted O’Meara. He’s one of the best.”

Testimonial from Robert Knudsen

We have enjoyed our relationship with Ted over several years and multiple assignments. He started with a simple recommendation but has since become a trusted confidant who we seek out for our outreach program, representing us at public meetings, and dealing with the media. He is part of our team and always does what he says he is going to do.

Testimonial from Bill Cohen

“I’ve worked with Ted in multiple public affairs and public relations projects across a number of business sectors. Ted is thoughtful, thorough, innovative, and most importantly highly effective. With his skillful guidance, we were always able to achieve our desired outcome.”

Testimonial from Roberta Scruggs

“Ted has an incredible talent for zeroing in on messages that resonate. One of our working groups started out with 26 ‘essential’ points, but Ted helped us focus on what really needed to be said. We ended up with a few great messages – ones that were read, heard and remembered.”

Communications director, Maine Forest Products Council

Testimonial from Eliot Cutler

“I have relied on Ted’s judgment, strategic vision and candor in two campaigns and countless other circumstances. He knows not only what to say or do in challenging situations, but also what not to say or do. He has a sense of humor and a long perspective that makes him a good friend as well as a great advisor.”

I love to wade into a challenge — to pull apart the issues, size up the players, and then develop the messages, strategies and means to deliver them effectively. 

My work has taken me all over Maine (and beyond), working in partnership with leading companies and organizations in fields such as energy, health care, law, manufacturing, tourism, education, natural resources, aquaculture and real estate development. 

I’ve spent a lot of time at the intersection of business, government and politics. I’m equally comfortable being out in front or working quietly behind the scenes, but every client gets the same things — sound thinking, objective advice, creative solutions and total professionalism.

My company works with a small group of clients at any one time, focusing on long-term, multi-faceted relationships, usually involving major communications challenges and often with a strong public affairs dimension.
