After a stellar PR career spanning three decades in the corporate world working for blue chip companies in senior positions in public relations, such as her most recent past role of Vice President of Consumer and Entertainment Public Relations at Univision Communications, Rosemary Ravinal decided to leave the corporate world to pursue her lifelong passion to launch RMR Communications Consulting LLC, to address gaps in presentation skills, public speaking and media readiness among C-suite executives in both English and Spanish.
“Public speaking as always been a passion of mine,“ Ravinal stated. “It is common knowledge that public speaking is one of the public’s major fears, However, for leaders and Top Executives, not mastering the art of the spoken word is not an option. When you are in a position of leadership, people expect you to be fluent, engaging, confident, persuasive. But not everyone is born with those set of skills. So, I saw an opportunity to do what I do best and love, and help Executives become master communicators. Once they do, it will change their lives and catapult their careers to the next level,” she remarked.
As a communications expert, Rosemary has more than three decades of experience in the U.S. mainstream, Hispanic and Latin American markets, and has held senior public relations positions at multinational corporations, non-profit organizations and agencies in New York and South Florida.
Before she joined Univision, Rosemary was vice president of communications and content at multicultural agency República Havas, and director of corporate communications for A+E Networks Latin America.
She is past president of the Hispanic Public Relations Association, and has lectured nationally and written about Hispanic marketing, multicultural competency and Latina achievement. She was the first Hispanic contributing news analyst for MSNBC cable news network and hosted various award-winning local public affairs television and radio shows.
Rosemary holds a Master of Science in Global Strategic Communications from Florida International University and an undergraduate degree in broadcast journalism from Adelphi University. She is Accredited in Public Relations (APR) by the Public Relations Society of America, and alumna of the National Hispanic Leadership Institute (NHLI).
