Denise Kennedy — President
Writer. Listener. Observer. Storyteller. Not necessarily in that order.
With 20 years of strategic communications experience, Denise understands what it takes to connect with your audiences and stakeholders. She spends her days working with clients to think beyond a New York Times interview or single success metric because she knows that successful organizations play the long-game. They look at how to connect with audiences across social media, traditional news, events, content and much more. Her approach is to help organizations focus on their goals through integrated communications and collect wins along the way. Her specific skills include strategic planning, media relations, messaging, stakeholder engagement, communications strategy, thought leadership, editing, facilitation and interpreter between clients and creatives and communications experts and business leaders.
In her 20 years, Denise has worked with organizations across a variety of issue areas. Veterans, healthcare, mental health, workforce development, economic development, education, software development and B2B technology are just a few.
Denise graduated with a bachelor’s in Journalism from the Indiana University of Pennsylvania. She completed General Assembly’s Digital Marketing Certification in February 2018 and is a certified facilitator. She has run exactly one marathon and countless half marathons and other races. Raised in the City of Brotherly Love, she is a diehard Philadelphia sports fan and is still basking in the Eagles 2018 Super Bowl victory.
