We listen, we dig, we delve, we discuss—all to focus and prepare you to take full advantage of meetings, events, and communications. We help organize your content into stories that will resonate and connect with both your internal and external audiences. Together we decide how those stories will be told, shown, or revealed.
Then we write, coach, create and produce, all the while guided by your brand, each executive’s unique personality, and what unites us all as humans: Our need for understanding, acknowledgement, and respect.
We’ve crafted written communications, coached executives to develop and hone their presentation skills, created animated and live videos, produced large-scale musical extravaganzas featuring entire leadership teams, and created cinematic PowerPoint and graphics to bring our
clients’ stories to life.
From helping to organize your content, ferreting out the behind-the-scenes drama and triumphs, crafting the stories, creating the reinforcing bang! and pow! of video, graphics and powerpoint, to our proven personality-based coaching that helps presenters make the most of their unique personalities and talents. Add a keepsake takeaway to reinforce key messages and your events live on in the minds of your audience.

"I want to thank all of you for helping me prepare. I don’t want to think about how it would have gone without each of you in the mix. I was better because of you. Thank you! "

Salespeople used this retro-style animation approach to take customers on a trip through their "business space", which helped make the business case for their solution.
High energy, vibrant colors, and anime style drawings brought to life how to differentiate this global company’s offerings against the competition.
When employee benefit changes needed to not only be explained but accepted, we scripted (and acted in) a sketch comedy variety show video. Metrics measuring adoption went through the roof!
Coaching meets direction when we get execs on camera. We cast them in appropriate roles and make sure we keep them in their comfort zone while showcasing and revealing their personalities to their audiences.
Creating real moments with real people helps to bring the stories in this often-used format to life, providing an emotional connection.
We often hear, "You do that, too?!" And chances are pretty good that we do. From custom songs with catchy choruses and lyrics that rock your messages, to costumes, to comic books that feature the heroes who work alongside you, even shopping for clothes that will enhance an exec's onstage personality. We've been called a high-touch creative consulting agency (we're guilty as charged!). Our theatrical backgrounds give us a breadth of experience and knowledge, and we encourage our clients to leverage all of it.
Message Glue sticks with you...all the way from concept through connection.
"For onstage, onscreen and behind-the-scenes...you are my core storytellers and messaging consultants."

We’ve had our award-winning short films showcased at Sundance and at film festivals around the globe. And our client videos have captured corporate awards for writing and acting. But the best reward was an attendee rushing the dais at a conference and saying, "I need a copy of that video to show my customer. On Monday! In Germany!"
