“We didn’t need to reinvent ourselves, we needed to rediscover ourselves. Colin helped us articulate what we do and, more importantly, why we do it. He understands that brands are built on values, and he knows how to make them shine.”
Susan Rushing, CEO, Burke

The simplest way to describe how I help clients is to think “message out.” If what you are doing affects the messages audiences receive from or about your company or cause, I can help. Most often, my clients have internal communication staff. They want a partner that can help them plan strategically and get prepared for a campaign, announcement, opportunity or crisis. But I also help clients that have little or no internal communication support.

The list of communication services can seem infinite. I have found that most of my clients need help with a fairly straightforward list of core communication activities, including:

  • Strategic communication planning
  • Branding and positioning
  • Message development and execution
  • Writing technical, scientific, political
  • Earned media campaigns
  • Presentation, storytelling and branding workshops
  • Public speaking and spokesperson training
  • Presentation, pitch and speech development
  • Crisis management
