President and Partner
Governmental decisions are often critical to business success, and Strategies has the expertise and political relationships necessary to effectively represent clients and advocate for their interests in the lawmaking and regulatory process.
Often, a successful business strategy requires a strategic effort to educate relevant stakeholders and communities of interest and motivate them to act. Strategies crafts and deploys cogent and winning narratives that lay the groundwork for business growth and successful public policy outcomes. We have expertise in using public opinion polling and other tools to drive success.
We partner with industry leaders, forward-thinking innovators and market disruptors to identify opportunities to reconcile real or perceived conflict between societal issues and business objectives. Together with sound strategic and operational consulting, this results in tangible win-win scenarios, aligning our clients’ core business strategy with community benefit. Sometimes referred to as “Shared Value,” these strategies create a sustainable framework for social responsibility that not only fosters business growth, but favorably positions our clients as thought leaders and valued members of their communities. Our Business and Community Solutions team regularly advises clients on business partnerships and coalition building; workforce analysis and development; and Board of Directors retreat planning and facilitation.
Active engagement in the political process is an opportunity to protect and advance your business and industry interests. We utilize our strong relationships with state and federal campaign teams to guide our clients in creating and maximizing valuable political relationships.
