I, Susan Vaillancourt, am an independent practitioner who owns and operates SV Communications -- a strategic communications firm with a focus on public relations and marketing communications. During my career, which spans more than a decade, I have acquired a unique set of expertise that enable me to provide you with the highest caliber communications services.
Because of the solid relationships I have developed during my years in business, I have access to a network of seasoned professionals in other disciplines with whom I can collaborate on your behalf. This business model allows me to provide you with a la carte services or a complete package, whichever you prefer. It also enables me to avoid significant overhead costs and ultimately pass my savings along to you in the form of high-quality services at reasonable prices. I am committed to building and maintaining solid partnerships with my clients, with an overriding goal of exceeding your communications needs and expectations.
As a member of the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA), I honor the following PRSA values to guide my behavior and decision making process:
Advocacy - I serve the public interest by acting as a responsible advocate for those I represent; and provide a voice in the marketplace of ideas, facts, and viewpoints to aid informed public debate.
Honesty - I adhere to the highest standards of accuracy and truth in advancing the interest of my clients and in communicating with the public.
Expertise - I acquire and responsibly use specialized knowledge and experience.
Independence - I provide objective counsel to those I represent, and am accountable for my actions.
Loyalty - I am faithful to those I represent while honoring my obligation to serve the public interest.
Fairness - I deal fairly with clients, employers, competitors, peers, vendors, the media, and the general public.
SV Communications offers flexible billing options based on your preferences. I can provide services at a fixed hourly rate; base costs on the duration and complexity of a project; or, I can determine a monthly retainer that extends over a longer period of time and includes a fixed subset of services.
