O’Neill and Associates’ message development workshops help our clients define the messages that most succinctly and strategically support their goals. These services begin with research of the client’s organization, its industry and its competitors. O’Neill and Associates reviews previous quantitative research studies, press coverage, and trends affecting the client’s marketplace. Our professionals lead members of the client’s leadership team through a series of exercises to help identify strengths and address weaknesses in the client’s organizational story. The results of this session are shaped into messages for use in communication to clients, potential customers, vendors and internal audiences.
