Hello, I’m Brett Gray.  I’m a 30+ year professional communicator. I’ve helped Fortune 500 companies sell their products and services, launched brand new start-ups, elevated worthy causes, and even promoted a United States Senator.  I’ve handled significant crises, and I’ve helped companies and causes better express their purpose, their goals, and their value. I’m based in Dallas with a nationwide clientele.

I believe that effective public relations begin with the basics – understanding your story and mission, developing a solid plan to meet your goals, and executing on it.  I’m a listener, strategist, and communicator at heart, and I believe that the best stories are told by those who are served by my clients – satisfied customers. 

Like the man who received excellent medical care that saved his life or the owner of a start-up business whose enterprise thrived as the result of her collaboration with her small business banker. 


A public relations plan is not a one-size-fits-all thing.  Each client is different, and we’ll spend time up front so you can share your story.  I’ll want to see the big picture – the challenges and opportunities that you face.  I’ll listen and develop a customized, strategic plan to meet your goals. 

I’ll be your communications partner, and together, we’ll develop an approach that is tailor-made to connect with your stakeholders and generate results.

“Working with Brett Gray at Weber Shandwick and at the North Texas Food Bank gave me a front row seat to learn from a gifted communicator. He is analytical, practical, has the ability to lay out a brilliant strategy and has done PR for a myriad of industries. From crisis work, to advocacy to media pitching, Brett is a top PR talent, and a joy to work with. My favorite phrase to hear Brett say is “this might be a crazy idea…” that usually meant that he had an out of the box plan that would make the client/leadership very happy.

Brett Gray was a colleague of mine in the eighties when we met on staff in the office of U.S. Senator Pete V. Domenici in Washington.  His considerable communications skills greatly enhanced the Senator’s work on behalf of New Mexico, and were most valuable to my own work.  I have closely followed Brett Gray’s career for close to 35 years now and am continuously in awe of his knowledge, energy, and creativity.

Brett advised executive level leadership on the initial media roll-out and communications of the After8toEducate collaborative initiative. I depended upon his dynamic expertise in working with multiple agency partners and steady guidance which resulted in broad-based coverage on a variety of media outlets.
