The shortest version:
Roger Gillott and Eden Gillott Bowe
The short version:
Roger, Founder of Gillott Communications, is known for the breadth and depth of his expertise. He has held high-level positions for more than 30 years. Before founding his own consultancy, Mr. Gillott was a partner at one of the nation’s top strategic communications firms and a senior member of its Crisis Practice. Prior to that, he was a public relations executive for a Fortune 100 company, Occidental Petroleum Corporation. Previously, Mr. Gillott was a highly regarded reporter and editor for The Associated Press and the head of its West Coast news operation for business, economics and labor relations.
He is known for his love for Brooks Brothers suits, Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf’s Vanilla Ice Blendeds with whipped cream, and for his daughter that everyone cannot wait to meet!
She’s a damage control expert and a former business professor, and has nearly a decade of Crisis PR expertise. She resolves issues both in and outside the media’s glare — from celebrity scandals and corporate fraud to criminal and civil litigation. Educated in business and communications on three continents, Eden has worked in Manhattan, Seoul, and Los Angeles. She is co-author of A Lawyer’s Guide to Crisis PR (Second Edition) and A Board Member’s Guide to Crisis PR.
She’s the Los Angeles Non-Profit Affinity Group Leader, which brings together non-profit executives, consultants, and Board members to discuss challenges, learn behind-the-scenes industry tidbits, and build a stronger community.
She’s appeared in the LA Times, Wall Street Journal, NPR, the Washington Post, Forbes, Eater, Food Quality & Safety Magazine, Food Safety Magazine, Disaster Recovery Journal, Construction Executive, New York Nonprofit Media, Verdict magazine, California Lawyer, Attorney@Work, Attorney at Law: Downtown Los Angeles, the National Federation of Independent Businesses magazine, PR News, PR Measurement Guidebook, and Deborah Shames’ book Out Front.
She frequently speaks to bar associations, law firms, CPA firms, non-profit organizations, companies, and at conferences.
She’s also known for her love for Bay Cities sandwiches, always being out-of-town, and as Roger’s daughter (mostly by members of ProVisors).
