Our content and connections yield tangible results for companies

  • Then we get your content seen in all the right places by all the right people

We get help get companies from ‘what’ to ‘why’

“Colleen and her team have done an amazing job with our PR at Splashtop including taking the lead on our unicorn funding announcement. They put together a comprehensive plan, coordinated with us on thought leadership materials, helped craft a compelling press release, did outreach to get press coverage beyond my expectations, and gave us great suggestions on making the most of the announcement. We couldn’t have done it without them.”

“Colleen is an exceptional talent and one of the most outstanding strategic marketing communication leaders. I’ve had the pleasure to work with Colleen and her team on numerous projects and in multiple companies (StreamSets, Ayla Networks and Echelon) and each time results were impeccable! She has great experience in dealing with complex technologies and always delivers high impact results through aligned brand and campaign messaging, and press strategy. She uniquely understands both the traditional and new rules for PR to help a company dramatically improve its visibility – and provide a foundation for product, success and thought leadership. I am looking forward to continuing to work with Colleen and her amazing team!”
