Who are we and why do we do what we do?
We’re problem solvers, consultants, advisors, creators and strategists.
We know that communications strategies and challenges shouldn’t be siloed but instead integrated into every aspect of the business to support the end goals. And we believe the sharpest tools in any box are strategy, message and story. Those are the tools with which we work.
We love telling stories and helping other people figure out how to tell theirs. And we like our clients–as consultants we get to spend a lot of time hanging out with clients, getting to know who they are and what makes their company tick or tock. We value those long term relationships, some of which extend back 30 years.
What would we be doing if we weren’t doing this?
Nora would be off researching the history of story, narrative and fairytales. And learning more languages (she speaks French and can get around in Italian, German and Spanish). Mike would be cooking and collecting wine and rescuing dogs. Lots of dogs.
Nora started her career in sales for a start-up tech company and moved into marketing communications, working with Verizon, AT&T, Lucent and Avaya.
