Go ahead. Poke around the bio. Get to know me.

If you’re thinking about hiring DKR Communications, you should know if the person leading the company — Diane K. Rose — has the expertise you need.

The Professional

I bring to the table 20+ years of real-world, hands-on experience in corporate communications, including public relations, content marketing, message development, internal communications and change management, executive and investor communications, M&A communications, social media, writing and editing, and more.

The last 15ish years have been focused on B2B technology companies of all sizes, both public and private. My experience ranges from working in-house as the director of global public relations at a NYSE-listed technology company to providing outsourced public relations and marketing consulting for organizations with less than 50 employees. I’ve taught public relations, news reporting and business writing at the university level, and spent time as a journalist and editor.

My tech expertise includes work for a broad range of companies. I’m well-versed in mobile and telecommunications, enterprise technologies, IoT, marketing tech, energy, managed services, cyber and network security, cloud platforms, and a number of other SaaS sectors.

The Personal

If you not nosy about my personal life, just check out the services page. If you do want some more info, here are a few non-essential Diane facts in no particular order:

  • Prefers an adventure over a clean house. I regularly kayak the warm waters of Florida’s west coast and hike sections of the Appalachian Trail; I’ve completed the four-day trek to Machu Picchu and crossed Icelandic streams in a Jeep. You’ll find photos of my adventures on Roaming After Sixty, my Instagram feed.
  • On a quest to find the perfect bottle of red wine that costs under $15. Research. Research. Research.
  • Understands semicolons. If you aren’t easily offended, check out Word Porn, a Facebook page I manage for fun for 50,000+ followers.
  • Ran a marathon (26.2 miles). Once. Checked the box.
  • Fan of the Tampa Bay Rays baseball team. I’m willing to cheer on the Washington Nationals and the Baltimore Orioles unless they are facing the Rays.
