We’ve been there and will guide you to impactful, results-oriented marketing.

Executive Communications and Coaching

Every day, we partner with CEOs, superintendents, presidents and board members to refine the how and what of communicating with their key audiences. We’ve spent decades helping those who are charged with charting the course also connect with those who matter most—clients, employees, stakeholders—in ways that are authentic, forthright and timely. Sometimes this also includes being a sounding board for issues large and small or helping leaders enhance their communication style, method and delivery.

Employee Communications and Culture Architecture

We believe strongly in communicating your intended culture and to honestly engage your key constituents, particularly in times of change. How you communicate matters to your bottom line through employee motivation and retention. It also impacts the confidence and engagement of your stakeholders.

Fundraising Planning and Campaign Communications

Reaching your organization’s potential often requires strategic fundraising. O’Connor Connective has the campaign experience necessary to help you with pre-campaign planning, campaign messaging, promotional materials and volunteer training so you reach your fundraising goals. We partner with experienced fundraising executives to conduct feasibility studies and provide counsel for your campaign strategy. Together, we will work with your leadership, boards, alumni and volunteers to reach your engagement and development goals.

Facilitation and Team Alignment

Great planning starts at the top. We will partner with your leadership team to develop planning sessions that will prioritize where you are headed and how to get there. We’ll also lead your small group sessions, board or senior leadership retreats or department planning sessions with grace, diplomacy and agility. It’s all about defining your team’s path to innovative results.

Public and Community Relations

Let us help you tell your story. O’Connor Connective will help shape messaging and gain visibility and recognition for your organization through social media, media relations, community relations and crisis communications. We will also partner with your organization’s spokespersons to ensure your message and delivery are spot on.
