I am Monica Vendituoli, Founder of MAV Media & Messaging, and I am a Media Relations, Messaging Framework, and Resume Editing maven.
I am a former journalist turned Duke University School of Business MBA student turned founder of MAV Media & Messaging. I’m a real-life version of the “Explain It Like I’m 5” subreddit r/explainlikeimfive at your service. I thrive while pinpointing what differentiates firms from one another and then translating that knowledge into copy anyone can comprehend.
My specialties include media relations and messaging work for finance, real estate, and tech firms. Through my pitching prowess, I’ve secured top-tier media coverage for firms ranging from Series A startups to state-run investment funds with more than $9 billion in assets.
But pitching isn’t the only key to a winning media relations strategy now. And that’s where my aptitude for explaining difficult concepts comes into play. I enjoy ideating with company leaders to identify the right messaging framework for any marketing channel, whether it be an awards program or influencer engagement. I also enjoy editing resumes for executives and novices alike. Here are the services I offer, and here’s how to get in touch.
