International and Strategic Communications Expert

Who Is Jeff Raleigh?

Jeff Raleigh can say with a high degree of certainty that he is the only

man alive who has been a butler for the Honcho of Hedonism, Hugh

Hefner, and senior counselor to two Sultans of Sharia, the presidents

of Islamic Republics of Afghanistan, Hamid Karzai, and Pakistan,

Pervez Musharraf.

He is also a former top level US diplomat, a 30 year veteran of the

public relations industry, a former Army intelligence operative, an

expert in mid-east and south Asia politics and communications and a

sought after commentator on current events.

Raleigh was the senior communications counsel to the US Mission to

Afghanistan in 2004-5, the senior communications counselor to

Pakistan’s President Pervez Musharraf in 2005-6, the head of a counter

narcotics program in Afghanistan in 2007-9 and a strategic

engagement consultant with the DoD in 2009-10.

Prior to that spate of work, Raleigh was a 25 year executive with one

of the world’s largest Public Relations firms, Hill & Knowlton, managing

its flagship New York office and heading up its Global Client service

portfolio. He has represented a number of Fortune 500 companies as

well as a gold mine in Guyana, the inventor of a silicon brain, which

ended up having the same power as Charlie Sheen’s, and two

gentlemen who were convinced they had found a methods to turn base

metals into gold. ( In case you’re wondering, they hadn’t.)

He now owns his own communications consultancy, Raleigh Strategic

Engagement.

Designer and Producer

Cindy currently works as a gallery curator. She also has an online gallery she designed and maintains, www.crfineart.com.

She comes from a technical background starting at National Semiconductor in the early 1980's. Several years later she landed at a container leasing company where she designed and programmed container tracking systems installed in the US, UK, Hong Kong and Rio de Janeiro.

Cindy's creative skills combined with her technical background make her the perfect producer. Why do it ugly when it is just as easy and more fun to make it aesthetically pleasing as well as entertaining.
