SpeakingJerryJERRY AMERNIC is a writer, but he’s a lot more than that. Journalist, author and novelist, he’s an expert on the media and communications with clients that include many of Canada’s leading companies. When he talks, people take note. Listening to him could change your entire approach to Marketing and PR.

Most organizations and business leaders don’t have a strategy for Media Relations, never mind Marketing, PR and Communications. That’s why Jerry is so passionate about getting equipped with the right tools and developing a plan to make it happen. He has worked with leading executives and top companies from a wide variety of sectors, and shown them how investing in new skills and strategies can lead to a major turnaround in both the quantity and quality of their media exposure. It can also earn them huge points with key stakeholders. Jerry is a dynamic speaker who informs and entertains, and leaves his audience energized.


Managing The Message


Getting the right message out to those who matter is no easy task. But how come some organizations and people manage to succeed while the huge majority don’t? Jerry applies his expertise as a writer and journalist to the corporate world, and shows how communicating with the right words, tone and clarity makes your audience sit up and take notice.


How do some people and organizations always seem to get their name out there, and keep doing it time after time? It’s no mystery really, but it can be an art. Jerry reveals the key skills and critical elements that show you how to rise above the crowd and make yourself ‘media friendly’ so they will always come back for more.

Take Back My Time

“Jerry helped me gain exposure in ways I never had before by showing how to reach out to the media and build profile. It’s an important part of marketing that many organizations never learn.”

Marc Spector
Partner, Steinecke Maciura LeBlanc, Barristers & Solicitors

“Jerry has been both a colleague and supplier to me for over 20 years, and I can attest to his wide breadth of experience, excellent writing skills, enthusiastic and dogged determination, and creative solutions that get the job done.”

Jan Carnegie
Principal, The Osborne Group

“Considering baseball’s enduring popularity, ‘Gift of the Bambino’ [by Jerry Amernic] has the makings of a family oriented Hollywood movie, a cross between ‘The Natural’ and ‘Field of Dreams’.”

The Wall Street Journal

“It [Gift of the Bambino] could be the sports version of ‘The Da Vinci Code’.”

The Los Angeles Daily News

“In [Gift of the Bambino] Amernic generates a sepia-tinted Field of Dreams nostalgia. The truly moving scenes show the loving counsel of old age, the awakening of a young mind, and a friendship that spans generations.”
