How we work
Each client is unique, but the approach always begins the same—Mindy and Mike listen to understand and then act to develop a comprehensive strategy and provide support that positions clients for success. They offer clients a different, educated and experienced perspective, knowing what to say, how to say it, where, when, and to whom.
They work to influence public policy at the state and local government levels through direct lobbying and coalition building with public opinion leaders and organizations, using an effective communication plan and strategy that is specially designed to help achieve client goals. They do the research and intelligence gathering to help position clients to maximize their opportunities with procurements. They help broaden a client's key relationships through introductions and opportunities to build partnerships and friendships. In the area of association management, they perform all services from membership development to meetings and direct lobbying, operating as in-house staff without the significant additional cost of in-house staff.
