About Ed

Ed Hollett is a public relations and public policy consultant with 25 years experience in the public and private sectors. 

Since 2005,  Ed Hollett has been informing and provoking readers of  The Sir Robert Bond Papers, the longest-running and most widely-read blog on politics and public policy in Newfoundland and Labrador. He is an experienced executive public relations coach and a commentator on public relations and public policy in the conventional media both for local and national outlets. 

It's all about connections 

Ed brings insight and humour to his speeches in a way that is every bit as unique as Bond Papers. His style is enthusiastic,  frank,  and personal. Ed customizes each presentation for the audience and adjusts during the presentation to connect to the people in the room. 

Whether he is talking about the craft of public relations or events on morning news,  Ed can take an audience from 30,000 feet down to the grassroots in a way that is accessible to everyone.  In person or online, Ed's goal is to get beyond the obvious to explore what is going on out of plain sight.
