James T. Chido

Writer, Editor, and Strategic Communications Planner

Location icon United States

I craft articles, speeches and tell stories. I also am a crack researcher, editor and strategic communications planner.

I have more than 30 years'​ experience in corporate communications and reporting, in fields such as energy, IT, cybersecurity, heath, and international relations. I design, lead and implement successful communications campaigns that boost employee morale and productivity, influence customers, and inform shareholders. I also mentor and train staff, network, and stay abreast of best practices. My analytical, research, and writing/editing skills are well honed. I translate technical writing into layman's language. In addition, I have authored a book and several short stories, and edited a book as well.

A Cybersecurity Expert Joins the "Super Brains"

"I love information security," Terri Phillips says. "Cybersecurity, computer security-all the iterations it's gone through.
