I'll get to the point.
You're a visionary. You have big ideas and you want them executed.
But here's the thing:
Your vision has been articulated in maps and plans
but not in the court of public opinion.
If you've ever stood in front of a room full of people who didn't quite understand your mission, asked questions you weren't prepared for and left you feeling like the enemy - you know what I'm talking about. It's not a good feeling.
When your messaging is missing the mark it can slow you down and make you feel like your energy, money and social capital are better spent elsewhere.
This is where I come in (and why you should call me first):
I hone your messaging, facilitate better meetings and help you accomplish your engagement goals before you're in too deep. As a result, your relationship with the public improves, your key stakeholders actively participate, your time, money and energy are rewarded and your projects run with less resistance.
Who I work with:
Real Estate Developers (large and small)
Municipal Government Agencies
Councils, Boards and Commissions
Community Development Corporations
How I help:
I develop strategies to: 1) identify, engage and retain the right people for your projects and 2) effectively communicate your vision in any setting.
So you need to stop trying to do this on your own.
You wouldn't want someone to develop their own neighborhood, am I right? digging up streets and bringing in 4X4s like they know what they're doing...
I assume not because specific knowledge is required to perform these tasks effectively (and safely), which you know.
The same is true for engaging the public and retaining your key stakeholders.
I know because I've worked with CEOs, elected officials, regulators, architects, urban planners, citizens, religious leaders, non-profit executives, you name it and let me tell you...
There is an art to this.
