Allen Carrier, Founder, and CEO of Carrier Media Company is an award-winning journalist, media strategist, and White House political appointee who has served three presidential administrations and covered some of the most controversial and public affairs issues of our time.

His experience with newsmakers and the reporters who shape the news lends credibility and authority to his approach to teaching clients the skills necessary for dealing with the media.

His credits include ABC World News, MSNBC, CNN, BBC, Dateline, Larry King Live, ABC 20/20, C-SPAN, and CNBC.  He has been awarded three Silver Anvils for excellence in communications, two Bronze Anvils, and two Emmy awards, and received a Grammy nomination for a Simon & Schuster-produced audiobook.

Allen also has the significant governmental experience, having managed communications for U.S. Reps. Norman Mineta (D-CA) and James Lloyd (D-CA), wrote numerous floor speeches and contributed to policy formation with the U.S. House Select Committee on Intelligence, U.S. House Armed Services Committee, and U.S. House Subcommittee on Aviation.

As the National Media Director for Shandwick North American, Allen created hundreds of communications imperatives and advised senior executives across industries. He developed the first public health campaigns around HIV/AIDS, and served as Senior Director, Global Public Affairs for Pfizer, bringing additional expertise to Carrier in global healthcare, biotech, pharmaceutical, and NGOs.

Allen excels in preparing clients to relay their key messages and stories to the media by showing them how to transform their ideas into compelling stories — the kind that reporters use for soundbites and quotes and enjoys sharing his knowledge and expertise with the next generation of journalists and newsmakers.
