Communications strategy for
innovators and people who work for change
Are you working for social change? Are you challenging the status quo? Are you innovating new solutions to old problems?
I want to help.
Whether you envision a healthier planet, a more just society or a world in which humans treat all living beings with kindness, I'll help you communicate your vision so it inspires action that makes an impact.
I can help you with a variety of challenges:
“We need to launch a new communications initiative but don’t know where to start.”
“We need to research our options.”
“We need to know more about our audiences – who they are, what they value and how to talk with them.”
“We need to get clear on our goals so we choose effective strategies and tactics.”
“We need to make our messaging stronger, clearer and more compelling.”
"Our website is a mess! Do we have to do a full redesign or can we get away with an update?"
I'll serve as a catalyst, collaborator, co-creator and problem solver, working independently or as an adjunct to your staff.
Using design thinking strategies (another way of saying I ask a lot of questions -- good ones), I'll help you go:
from overwhelm to order
from fighting fires to setting priorities
from guesswork to informed decision making
from vision to strategy to action!
The results: You choose the best solutions, save money and capture the hearts and minds of your audiences.
About Me (& You)
I've spent many years helping nonprofit organizations, advocates and innovators communicate more effectively. I’ve worked in large organizations and small, consulted with nonprofits and entrepreneurs.
What I Do
It is my pleasure to bring structure, order and process to your projects. I approach each project in the larger context of your mission so you maximize its value and make the most of your resources.
How I Work
I worked with consultants in almost all my staff jobs so I know the benefits and pitfalls of having an outsider join a team for a limited time. Those experiences had such an impact on me that they shaped how I approach consulting today.
