Make Your Point Communications Testimonials


"I have known John Schmied for 18 years. First as a reporter who covered my news conferences and then as an employee, when I hired him as a writer.

He has a very unique talent for being able to assess a situation or a piece of work and look at it from number perspectives. At the same time he'll be formulating

a solution or the words to tell the story.  As a reporter, John always asked the most difficult but relevant questions of all his media colleagues.

As a writer, his approach to the subject matter is always comprehensive and written in a way that makes complicated material easy to read and understand.

John gets the job done, with results."

 "John has an exceptional ability to see through the haze of an issue and focus on the relevant details that impact the targeted community or audience most.

I consider myself fortunate to have had the opportunity to tap his journalism experience that helped me craft headlines that grab an editor’s attention

and shape news releases that make the point."
