Bernard Gauthier Headshot

“Strategic Communication Planning is much more than writing a list of tactics. It’s about establishing clear outcomes for the campaign — knowing exactly what changes you hope to bring about and selecting the key audiences who can truly make those changes happen. Strategic communication planning also requires a solid strategy that makes the very most of your resources and the environment in which your campaign will run. Finally, it’s about being prepared to carefully measure your progress toward those goals. I help organizations with every one of these crucial steps.”

About Me

I work hard to learn. I always have. I strive to learn as much about the delicate and complex process of communication as possible. I then use that knowledge to help my clients, my workshop participants and my students become more strategic, more powerful and more responsible as communicators.
