Matt DeCample, the former TV newsman who learned a lot about the other side of the camera as spokesman for the Beebe administration for eight years, is going into the consulting business.
His Capital C Consulting will focus on “strategic communications and media relations, as well as on crisis media, corporate improvisation training and public speaking.”
I’m sure the Hutchinson administration doesn’t think it needs any consulting help from DeCample, but I’m hopeful they’ll be as quick with responses to phone, e-mail and in-person requests for information — even of the nasty, impertinent and accusatory variety. The Huckabee administration definitely COULD have used some advice in this area.
Improv? DeCample has done improvisational comedy for 12 years. He writes:
One skill that can benefit any professional is improvisation. While an entertaining form of spontaneous comedy, improv has real-world applications for business interactions. A popular team-building pursuit in other parts of the country, there is very little corporate improv training available in the Mid-South.
