“Ted did a great job for us. He was able to take our very complex issue, boil it down and provide a message that resonated with the stakeholder group we were trying to influence. Ted is one of the most talented communications people we have had the pleasure of working with.”

Chris Fogg
Chief Executive Officer
Maine Tourism Association

“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.”

Roberta Scruggs
Communications director, Maine Forest Products Council

“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.”

Eliot Cutler
Attorney, businessman and
former Independent candidate for Maine Governor

“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.”

Bill Cohen
Retired Verso executive
Principal, Leeward Communications Maine

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.

“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.”
