Our promise

We’re smart and we’re scrappy. We find opportunities others miss. We don’t mind getting our hands dirty and uphill battles don’t scare us. We will find a way to win because that’s how we’re wired.

We’re former journalists, elected officials, campaign operatives, digital experts and corporate communication executives. We love what we do and we’re really good at it.

We will shoot straight with you. Always. If we disagree with you, we’ll tell you. Respectfully. We’re pros and we know you’re looking for good advice, not someone who tells you what you want to hear.

Crisis Management

Sometimes bad things happen. When they do, keeping a clear head and telling a credible and consistent story is imperative. We help our clients protect their reputations in times of crisis. Our services include:

  • Message development
  • Spokesperson training
  • Media relations
  • Digital communications
  • Media monitoring and analysis

Issue Advocacy

Lobbyists work inside a capitol building or a city hall. We work outside. Our job is to make sure the external environment regarding our client’s point of view is supportive so their lobbyists can be successful. Our services include:

  • Media relations
  • Digital communications
  • Ally identification and outreach
  • Grassroots activation
  • Collateral development

Grassroots Activation

Moving public opinion or changing public policy rarely happens without widespread public support. We’re business-savvy networkers, campaign people, connectors. We find the connections between people and issues.  Our services include:

  • Message development
  • Organizational outreach
  • Coalition management

Coalition Management

Nowhere does the adage about ‘strength in numbers’ apply more aptly than in the world of politics. The most effective political strategies often involve mobilizing like-minded individuals and groups to advocate for a shared policy objective. Our services include:

  • Ally identification and recruitment
  • Message development
  • Media relations
  • Fundraising
  • Board relations

Internal Communications

The number one employee complaint in most companies is a lack of communications. Employees want and need to know how they are doing in their jobs and how their work contributes to the overall success of the company.  We help companies tell their story to their employees in a systematic and efficient way. Our services include:

  • Communication audits
  • Content development
  • Presentation training

  • Story placement
  • Editorial board briefings

  • Message development
  • Media relations
  • Digital communications
  • Collateral development
  • Thought leadership strategies
  • Paid advertising

Ballot Campaigns

Getting at least 50%+1 on Election Day is a matter of strategy, mathematics, messaging and lots of hard work. We’re strategists, communicators and campaign junkies. We love politics and we love to win. Our services include:

  • General consulting
  • Campaign management
  • Message development
  • Brand and collateral development
  • Media relations
  • Field operations
