More Yes…Less No

Top marketing leaders have smart, creative ideas. They see opportunity in every conversation with customers and sales. They paint big picture images in business stakeholders’ minds, create consensus and excitement and know how to build momentum.They say yes, when others say no.
But increased demands on marketing organizations, competing priorities, tighter budgets and fewer resources are making it near impossible for most marketing leaders to harness the energy needed to be successful at what they do.
We inspire, re-energize and deliver solutions for clients who feel this way every day. Find out how we can help you.

Broad experience in public relations, social media and marketing to a wide range of clients across industries, including legal.


I hired Nicole on two occasions — once to work on building a community site (which involved everything from UX to member invitations) and once to create an internal communications campaign to engage employees in improving customer experience. In both cases Nicole rolled up her sleeves, created a thoughtful and collaborative workplan and drove to execution in record time. Her work demonstrated a clear understanding of her customer as well as her own creativity to make the programs look and feel more special. The entire team was grateful for her work and leadership and looked to her as a trusted advisor, as did I.

Senior Marketer | Strategist – CPG, Data, Technology

I have hired Nicole several times to create and implement marketing plans for my clients’ meetings. She creates multi-media conference marketing strategies that provide maximum reach, drive interest and increase attendance. She is able to work within the confines of limited budgets and has developed strong value propositions and compelling messaging for events. Nicole is effective at lead generation and awareness programs. I highly recommend her for anyone who is looking to effectively market a meeting or conference.

Nicole is an excellent product marketing resource, with excellent writing skills, ability to manage multi-faceted projects across geographies and deliver excellent product within budget and on time. I would most definitely hire her again.

Nicole is rare talent; she has consistently delivered superior results, as well as communicating throughout the entire process. She is fabulous at generating ideas and getting key stakeholders involved and responsive. Don’t hesitate to hire her.

Lucretia Lyons
President, Business Valuation Resources (BVR)

Nicole has taken leadership for our growing line of live events. She’s got a unique background that includes top-tier skills in marketing, event management, negotiations, working with experts, development, and project management, so she’s made it extremely easy for our company to delegate these new projects almost 100%. The results have been better than we budgeted on every project Nicole has run, and everyone who works with her loves her, so she’s kept the morale and energy very high. I recommend her highly in any of these difficult-to-staff areas.
