Long Island public relations, personal branding, social media, special event promotion and government affairs services are precisely what my firm and I are best prepared and most successful in providing for our clients. As President of Corbett Public Relations, based in Floral Park, Long Island, New York, I work with individuals, businesses and nonprofit groups to position them as leaders in their sectors. We seek extensive local, regional and national media coverage and create effective business growth strategies for clients. Our efforts have secured hundreds of hours of television, thousands of newspaper, magazine and online and blog print coverage. These outlets include Fox Business News, CNN, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Newsday, Entrepreneur, Crain’s New York Business and national and world media. My Grow Your Personal Brand program has assisted businesspeople in instituting personal marketing programs for themselves and their organizations, and my LinkedIn to Grow Your Personal Brand and Business program supports the needs of the entire small business community. In addition to conducting workshops, and making presentations at business conferences, trade shows and forums, I write articles and blogs about media relations, networking, social media and personal branding. I offer hundreds of tips and free advice to small business owners and entrepreneurs through media interviews and my Twitter accounts @wjcorbett and @liprguy, Facebook page and blog – Corbettprblog.com. Personally, I enjoy the outdoors with my wife, Laura, and our twins, Vita and Billy. My hobbies are photography, fishing and skeet and trap shooting. Backyard grilling and concocting BBQ sauces are my passions; I relish grilling challenges. I have visited most states in the continental United States and over 25 countries. It was great fun photographing the spectacular lava fields and frozen lakes of Iceland, Iguazu Falls in the Amazon Jungle and Glacier National Park.
