Brown and Martin, Inc. was a typical public relations/marketing firm with one key difference; Dale Brown was a ventriloquist. Dale’s imaginative use of ventriloquist puppets as serious communications tools in the business world resulted in articles in The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Time and many other publications. It also led to TV appearances on Good Morning America, ABC World News Tonight, CBS This Morning, The Today Show and others. Believing that “Humor makes the message medicine go down easier,” Dale and his staff wrote hundreds of scripts for “puppet-centered” corporate presentations. B&M’s list of Fortune 500 clients is a testament that successful companies are not afraid to poke fun at themselves if the humor helps to get across serious messages.
