“Public sentiment is everything. With public sentiment, nothing can fail; without it nothing can succeed. Consequently he who molds public sentiment, goes deeper than he who enacts statutes or pronounces decisions. He makes statutes and decisions possible or impossible to be executed.”
— Abraham Lincoln

Digital / Creative
We create content through digital, video, and graphic design. We have the skill and experience to not only make our content look appealing, but we also have advanced social media and digital strategies to target audiences and influence behavior.
You only get one shot to get it right and let’s make it count. ISG handles all aspects of media relations including interviews, announcements, reactions, editorial boards, and opinion writing. We believe in preparation and training for media opportunities.
People need to be singing from the same script. Any leader or organization is only as good as it’s ability to communicate. If people don’t understand or believe in a vision, then it’s hard to be successful. At ISG, we are conductors leading an orchestra. We write the score and lead rehearsals on how to perform our symphony in concert together.
Communications Planning Training
We have developed the Ignition Communications Template and a 15-minute Communications Strategy Tool for any issue no matter how big or small, professional or personal.
We offer trainings on how to speak with the media, how to be comfortable in front of a camera, and how to prepare your organizations to handle times of crisis.
Get your team singing from the same script. Oftentimes people can have very different interpretations of values and goals. The only way to be successful is for everyone to have a shared understanding of a mission.
