Our Approach

Consultants and agencies often like to think of themselves as partners to the clients they serve.  JMSC is often referred to as a partner by our clients.  We structure communications strategies that our clients believe in and can execute.  We do this by understanding their businesses and strategic objectives, their unique cultures and personalities, their strengths and inevitable quirks.  We work collaboratively and creatively, relying on our experience as a guide, not a template; and we provide straight, actionable advice.  While we like the recognition of doing a great job as much as anyone, we know it’s really all about the client:  we measure our success on the results they achieve with their key constituents.
