About Rita

Rita Smith has 37 years’ experience as a communications professional including all phases of internal and external communications planning, stakeholder management, media relations, managing earned and paid media campaigns, presenting, instructing and training in both the private and public sectors with extensive experience in speech writing and copy writing to deadline. She is a Certified Dale Carnegie instructor, with professional experience in team building and motivation.
Having launched her career as a humour writer, it seems appropriate that Rita Smith uses her blog, “Food for Thought” to observe the many facets of life – family, work, politics, business, communications and human relations – to share the humour she finds in all areas.
The only thing Rita has been doing longer than writing, is cooking. And now, she writes about that too.
