Please allow ME to tell YOU about my activities in only 330 words. I coined the term: PRAM: Public Relations – Advertising – Marketing which is what I have been doing since the third grade, back during that other century & millennium that we all came from 13 years ago: The 1900s. My father ran for mayor and I was there - his ‘write’ hand helper. The promotional bug bit me, we could say. In 1979, I started my own biz called:
KOOPERSMITH’S GLOBAL COMMUNICATIONS
“People read what ASK writes about…”
whose motto was influenced by the incomparable, Tommy Silverman, the founder of the New Music Seminar in NYC – the people who discovered Madonna and many other hot bands in the 1980s.
Today, as I always do: I wake up every morning with one thought in mind:
Who am I going to influence today?
Who is going to receive my posts, buzzes, 'sweet tweets' and messages?
Who is going to see things they’ve never seen before!
With social media networking all the rage, this is not hard to do, especially so since I am at the forefront of PRAM-ology and have built up considerable fanfare not only for my clients but my own stories/articles/features for a long time coming. I consider myself a:
NATURAL BORN WRITER.
Having the distinct ability to write about 1,900 Topics and constantly putting myself into my clients’ shoes (whether they are sneakers or stilettos) all helps, by making it as incredible as can be.
My resume below shows my credentials that I’m most happy to share with you as we kick start the New Year (minus 21 days, of course). I look forward to hearing from you and learning more! After all, that’s what it truly is all about, isn’t it!

CAREER OBJECTIVE #1 – SOCIAL MEDIA NETWORKING LIAISON IN THE FIELDS OF POP CULTURE / LITERATURE / PUBLISHING / ENTERTAINMENT BASED:
According to the new Literary Genre, EVENTOLOGY that I introduced to ‘The World’ on Wednesday, July 25, 1990 at 9:45 PM, because the ART (Pop Culture in vein with heavy doses of Branding in its Concepts) has gone ‘viral via several major Social Media Networks,’ intermediate marketing knowledge asserts that Fortune 500 Companies (universal in nature) would be highly interested in the 1,900 Topics contained in my Roster that can assuredly advance their ploys in a platitude of ways in today’s highly competitive arena. Therefore, I envision myself as the(ir) ‘Spokesperson(ality)’ for any of the ever-popular and ever-green EVENTS (aptly renamed as HOLIDATES systematically falling into 34 precise Categories) that I have creatively housed in:
THE ART OF EVENT-MAKING
ADRiENNE SiOUX KOOPERSMiTH’s CAMPAIGNS FOR HUMANITY ©1990

EDUCATIONAL HIGHLIGHTS and Misc.:
Washington University - (St. Louis, MO)
Bachelor’s Degree, May, 1974 – Throughout my post graduate career I have pursued on my own time my passion for writing. I have competed several books and screenplays; had my articles published in several magazines and my material used in a multistate million dollar advertising campaign for a major Chicago based retailer. Other topics I have written about range from Cave Men to Ice Cream/Candy – to Birds to Book Reviews to promoting Music to the Introduction of EVENTOLOGY® as a Literary Movement where 1,900 HOLIDATES in 34 different categories ‘grace’ my calendar. Life, in general, interests me from each and every angle.
In July of 2010 I placed as a semi-finalist in an international screenwriting competition called Scriptapalooza based in Hollywood, California “beating out” over 3,164 other submissions. As a writer, this recognition sets me apart from ‘the proverbial pack.’
Additionally, I have been twice honored by the Southern Poverty Law Center for my writings advocating race relation improvements.
As a firm believer in how Internet Technology aids the ‘Written Word’ (especially so as to when a life-long writer as myself strives ‘to make a difference in the world’ and set her compositions/manuscripts apart), I am extremely pleased to say that one of my copyrighted ‘HOLIDATES’ called NATIONAL SPLURGE DAY ©1994 recently ‘went viral’ via Twitter (one of the top 3 Social Media Networks) on Tuesday, June 18, 2013 and was ‘The Talk’ of such companies (many you will recognize as household names) as:
Pepsi, Mastercard, Bloomingdale’s, American Greetings, Dunkin Donuts TBay, Crate & Barrel, Belle Chevre, Herman Miller, Inc., Kiplinger, Jewish Tweets, Cole Haan, Auntie Anne’s, Fast Company, Milwaukee News, Capital One, OK! Magazine, USA, Parks and Recreation (retweeted 486 times); Hillside Chevrolet, Atlanta Fashion Week, MET-Rx, Stylitics, The Adult News Wire, Circuit Specialists, Majestic Athletic, Better Living, BlueFly.com, Mint.com, Keland Partners, Kendra Scott, CBGalleria, Texas HS Football, Swagbucks.com, Popsugar Beauty, The Office, Go Banking Rates, Casey Bond, Deal Moxy, Shenex Prom Dress, Whatsonlasvegas, High & Mighty, Jensen Karp, Pictureline, Inc. Accion – Microfinance Council, Anthropologie, Kirvin Doak, Trenz Las Vegas, Riviera Las Vegas, Idle Worship, Tanda, Carlo’s Bakery, ME! Bath, Cassie Leik, Garmental, Lauren Cosenza, Twotoneatlanta, Cycle Blogs, Stretton Climate, Cheap Date Cleve, R/S Boutique Wind-Up Dreams, Savism, G4BlogFeeds, KaBlog!, Carl’s Jr., Bonefish Grill and Fabu Daily.
AN INSIDER’s VIEW: In the PRAM: Public Relations – Advertising – Marketing Industries what can happen when such an opportunity presents itself (in a lackluster economy that Americans and others worldwide are currently finding ourselves in and experiencing) is that these companies (who are always looking to set themselves apart) can be approached as to IF they wish to participate in next year’s ‘HOLIDATES’ Celebration. Luckily, in this case, the twentieth (20TH) Year Anniversary/Birthday of NATIONAL SPLURGE DAY ©1994 happens on June 18, 2014. From the vantage point of how an Event-Planner thinks: The timing could not be better! This is because the playing field has been widened and I now have over 100 companiesv in which to approach to see if they would be interested in featuring my Writings about NATIONAL SPLURGE DAY ©1994 to their audiences, thus giving a salaried position to me (from July of 2013 – July of 2014) and in return, they receive new customers; more visibility; and an assortment of promotional perks that happen (features in both off and online newspapers, magazines, TV, radio stations and websites).
NOTE: vThe number may very well grow to be over 100 because when a topic ‘goes viral,’ that news can be retweeted so that tens of thousands of people receive it. A savvy marketing department of a major Fortune 500 Company knows this. Seeing the merit and longevity of NSD, they hire me in order to carry the Event out for their clients, customers and fan-base. It turns out to be a win-win situation for one and all.

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:
It is with great enthusiasm that I write in support of Adrienne Sioux Koopersmith. I have known Adrienne since 2008 when we became acquainted at the Wilmette Public Library. I am a professional translator and interpreter and began to work regularly there, making use of the reference materials, computer room, and other library resources, and we soon struck up a friendship, both personal and professional. During the time that we have known each other, I have had ample opportunity to witness first-hand Adrienne’s work as a writer, publicist, and eventologist. She would often show me the various projects on which she was working, both for clients and her own creative compositions. In particular, I was struck by her skill at combining the written word and visual imagery and her engaging prose style. In addition, she is highly knowledgeable about the various forms of social media, such as Facebook, Twitter, Linked-In, among others, and the facility with which she uses these media is impressive.
About a year after we became acquainted, I first turned to her, seeking assistance with my own work. As a translator, I work in the legal and technical fields, for the medical and pharmaceutical sectors in particular, and the tight time constraints and lengthy size of many of these projects sometimes prevent me from adequately reviewing, editing, and checking my drafts before meeting a deadline. Impressed with Adrienne’s excellent command of English, coupled with her writing and research abilities, I sought her help as a copy editor and researcher, and her assistance has proven to be invaluable, time and time again. She was often to devise solutions to problems – whether linguistic or conceptual – for which I was unable find a satisfactory solution. If my volume of work could justify it, I certainly would hire her on a regular basis.
Based on our working relationship of five years and the impressive strengths that Adrienne would bring to any job, it is with confidence that I commend her to you in the strongest possible terms.
