A journalist and public relations professional, Elliott decided to use the knowledge he’d gained during both his career and studies to consult businesses of all shapes and sizes. With that being said RCC is focussed on tailoring media solutions to small businesses wishing to rise to the top in a very competitive market. Whether you’re a startup technology company needing assistance in drafting press releases and generating media coverage or a restaurant looking for a social media presence, RCC can design and implement a package suited to you.
