The House Difference
We provide a core senior team of proven strategic communications and PR professionals with decades of experience as your "in-House team." We create the news rather than waiting for it to happen, and leverage thought leadership to increase your visibility and create opportunities. The House team is creative, often irreverent and, almost without fail, disruptive. We deliver strategic messages to ramp up growth while building the real and perceived value of your organization.
We don't wait for you to feed us stories. Busy founders, CEOs, and marketing directors have better things to do than hand feed their PR agency. We get into the fabric of the business, find the stories that will make a difference, and push those stories through the channels that are most effective.
