Since Ybonie Communications began its quest to make change in the human condition in 1995, our mission has been to use our human relations education and experience to "STEER THE WHEELS OF INDIVIDUAL'S SELF-AWARENESS" and to provide information from which members of society can "choose" to form constructive images of each other. The human interest consulting approach created and used by Ybonie is referred to as the Complete Targeted Communication System (CTCS). With CTCS, our firm specializes in designing individual human relations and communications programs that promote improvement in the quality of our clients' personal, professional, and social lives. Unlike any other, our specialty is the integration of great communication, creativity, and vision as well as superb research and relentless discipline, which allow us to achieve our goals. Our mission is based on the dictating philosophy that . . .Communication is Everything!
Who are we? Ybonie Communications is a grass roots human relations office that has been in business for more than seventeen years. We started as a temporary employment agency for administrators. In 1999, we streamlined our efforts and have completed some extraordinary goals. It is our company's ambition to become one of the nation's top specialty human relations firms. We believe that a constant drive for excellence will get us there. Ybonie Communications People's Magazine epitomizes our commitment to changing lives! Salome G. Rowe founded the company in 1995. Prior to that, Rowe worked as Director of Public Affairs for GreenHouse Productions - producers of "In the Mixx," a broadcast that aired on Fox 36 in Atlanta. She worked as a contracted written communications expert for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution and as a staff writer for several Georgia newspapers. Rowe has published hundreds of articles and is author of one fiction novel, "A Tale About Lilly," a book of poetry, "Abstemious Doves," illustrated by photographs taken by the author. Rowe also published Opened Vistas: Changing Minds One Brain at the Time, a book of children's stories written to improve the self-images and self-confidence levels of children ranging from 8 to thirteen years old, which is a sector of society that includes rapidly developing brains that are being strongly influenced by socio-ecological elements that swing from one end of the spectrum to the other. These children's brains have to interpret information from the mass media, peers, parents, teachers, and clergy, but those ideas have to be synthesized in the minds of these young champions and used to make critical decisions. People in today's world will one day depend on its youngsters to take them forward, and the quality of how well people communicate with themselves and each other will determine whether that good change that everyone is seeking can really be made manifest.
