Our Thought Leadership Approach
Executive communications is increasingly vital to company culture, brand reputation, leadership credibility and trust.
Today’s business leaders are increasingly expected to be active ambassadors and thought leaders for their companies, and to tell authentic, compelling stories that go beyond the numbers. Your leaders need to be seen and heard from more and across more channels, especially as our working world continues to straddle the physical and virtual worlds.
We see you, and hear you, and we help make sure your stakeholders do too – whether employees or customers, prospects or investors. Every leader is different, as are their voices, platforms and messages; therefore our executive communications strategy is unique to you, developed to spotlight the inner strengths of your leader(s) and company in ways that will best reach and inspire your target audiences. Our customized communications approach may include messaging counsel, media relations, content/publishing opportunities, speaking and events, social media, SEO, digital marketing and more.

A top-ranking female executive who heads the second-largest division of a major technology company is an outspoken advocate for women in STEM and defense, and diversity and inclusion (D&I). When we launched our partnership, she had an established reputation in workplace culture and D&I. And her social channels reflected that. Her network – primarily comprised of current and former employees – engaged highly with her mentorship and culture posts. But as she took on a greater role within the organization, she needed to expand beyond her “niche.”

Is an Executive Communications Strategy within Reach?
When it comes to corporate reputation, your executive communications strategy can make or break your brand. Jeff Bezos, Meg Whitman, Rupert Murdoch, Elon Musk.

Measuring Thought Leadership and Executive Communications: What’s the Difference?
Through executive communications, there are clear indicators of success. These range from how the presence and impact of business leaders can be viewed among industry peers.
