“We brought Craig in to do a comprehensive assessment of our Marketing and Communications Department. He performed a thorough analysis and clearly identified our strengths, weaknesses and opportunities. Craig is incredibly knowledgeable about marketing and communications, has great insights and worked well with our team. He was able to dissect a complex organization and create a clear understanding. His analysis was an invaluable tool when we were in the market for a new leader. It guided us and allowed us to select someone who perfectly matched our needs.”
"I have worked with a good number of consultants over the years, and Craig is absolutely the best. His expertise and insight was invaluable as he helped me develop a strategic plan for the communications function at a time when the organization was going through a complex transformation. A true thought partner and gifted strategist, Craig helped deliver a stellar global communications conference that included strategic planning and training and development. His efforts helped to transform the communications function and allowed us to think and work more strategically."
“I used to think of employee communications as a series of activities – newsletters, town halls, written communications, etc. Now I see the critical nature of approaching organizational communications in a more strategic and intentional manner. At the end of the day, if your employees don’t believe in the mission, they won’t be the ambassadors of change that you need.”
“With Craig’s perspective and coaching, I now have a far better grasp of how best to structure my communications team for better alignment with the business, and to drive greater performance from all members of the team. As a result, we’ve become far more valuable partners to our business leaders across the organization”
“Storytelling was little more than a buzzword to me until I went through the training. Once I did, I became much more aware of the power of telling a story and also more intentional about how I addressed our executives and my team. Now, I tell stories that will energize my team and give them a reason to believe. The examples crystallized a lot of this for me.”
“For too long, I took communication for granted, always feeling I had ‘more important’ things to do. I now see that little else matters if I can’t communicate effectively about why we’re doing something, how we’re going to get it done, and what I need from the team in order to accomplish it.”
