Branding & Transformation
"Eventually everything connects — people, ideas, objects… the quality of the connections is the key to quality, per se." — Charles Eames

When the conversation is about transforming brands, organizations or issues.

Old strategies and successes no longer plot a predictable path forward. The context is shifting. Understanding where you are today and where tomorrow can take you is essential to managing your reputation, building your brand and driving the conversation. We create roadmaps – positioning platforms rooted in strategic and creative insight that enable our clients to best build their future. From there we design tools, content and experiences that empower organizations to build momentum for the new vision inside and out. The result is a truly transformed culture and conversation.

Corporate Communications
"After nourishment, shelter and companionship, stories are the thing we need most in the world.” — Phillip Pullman

When you need to own your organization’s narrative.

Every organization has a story to tell: the value you create for customers; the contribution you make to communities; the innovations you deliver to the market; the opportunity you create for employees and shareholders. If you’re not telling that story, then your competitors and critics will tell a different story about you.

GPG’s Corporate Communications team helps organizations take control of their own narratives. We mine your operations to find those things that make you fascinating and unique and then we expertly craft a storyline that sticks with and moves your audiences. Finally, we develop programmatic communications efforts that integrate earned, social and owned media.

The result is impactful communications that allow you to shape the perceptions of the stakeholders who matter most.

Marketing Communications
"Quality is not an act, it is a habit." — Aristotle

Your brand isn’t what you say it is. It’s what people say it is. That conversation has a huge effect on your bottom line.

GPG’s Marketing Communications team helps ensure that consumers and other audiences experience brands consistently across all promotional touchpoints and moments. We craft integrated programs to spur awareness and favorability for organizations, products and services in support of our clients’ business objectives. And we help prevent the distractions and distortions that can undermine a seamless experience.

For companies, this might mean a research-based, consumer-facing campaign to drive sales or promote investment using a full mix of earned, owned, shared and paid media. For non-profits, it might mean generating charitable donations through strategic partnerships, or tapping influencers to foster engagement at events, in-store or online.

Across all channels and devices, GPG’s marcomms team helps clients build and maintain constructive, consistent relationships with their valuable audiences.

Policy Advocacy
"The government is us; we are the government, you and I." — Ben Franklin

When the conversation is about regulation or legislation.

GPG’s Policy Advocacy team helps organizations navigate the world of federal legislation and regulation.

We work with our clients to define their priorities and positions. We use research to create sharp messages and attention-grabbing advertising. We change minds and drive actions on the biggest issues of the day.
