Testimonials

“Andrea Goulet Ford is an excellent, organized and effective speaker. I heard her speak at a recent Washington DC Meetup on digital communications. Her message is clear and compelling.”
Bernadette Hyland, CEO, www.3roundstones.com

"I'd recommend Andrea to any business or brand because of how well she is able to take high level concepts and break them down into digestible actions. She joined us this semester as a guest speaker in the VCU Entrepreneurship Program and our seniors were blown away by her knowledge on brand, brand voice, and startups. One student commented that Andrea was the best speaker we've had in class all year because of how she tied her experience into practical takeaways for the students to apply to their senior capstone projects. An all-star, without a doubt."

Book Description

Think of a brand you love. Every time you interact with them, it's a joy. They just seem to have their stuff together, which just makes you want to do more and more business with them. What makes these brands so great? It's not a secret. They have a Culture of Content. They've invested in their prose, their people, and their processes. They have a collaborative spirit. Leaders know how to articulate visions. Messaging foundations are documented. Approvals are swift and nimble. And creative professionals have the resources they need to execute engaging content in real-time. They've made communication a priority and that shows in their bottom line.
