- Community Outreach & Public Process
When done well, community process results in a better-informed decision, broader and deeper support for the outcomes and the ability to implement a solution or project so that it is truly embraced by its stakeholders. I can help you to engage successfully with stakeholders by providing good groundwork, preparing supporting information in ways that are relevant and meaningful, and by providing strong facilitation structures.
- Strategic Planning
Knowing who you are and what you do is only half the battle when trying to sustain or grow an organizational vision. Having a clear plan for making key decisions as you come to various crossroads can make a big difference. I can help you define your organization’s direction, and develop a roadmap for how to best allocate your resources and pursue a particular course of action to realize that vision.
- Communications Planning
There is both an art and a science to reaching the audiences you care most about. I can help you rethink who to target, when to reach out to them, and design the kinds of messages that most resonate for those you need to communicate with effectively.
- Video Production
I work with non-profits, organizations, businesses and others who are looking for innovative and compelling ways to tell their stories digitally. Working with a stable of some of the brightest young talents in video to shoot and edit your projects, I have a growing list of happy clients.
As a former economic development and government geek, I particularly enjoy bringing to life stories that are often told in – well, I’ll just say it – a predictable, uninspired way. Let me help you tell your community or organization’s story in a way that gets everyone else as inspired as you are every day doing the work you do.
- Government Affairs
Responsible advocacy ensures that the voice of an organization is heard such that it can help influence the actions and policies of government from the local, state and/or federal levels. I can help initiate, prepare, interpret and review relevant government actions, and help clients reach those who can most benefit from this kind of dialogue and information sharing.
