"There’s nothing that a sense of humor and a deep breath can’t help."
I empower companies and organizations to tell their stories better. Whether that story is about who they are -- (branding/strategic communications) – how they want to change the world -- (advocacy/behavior change) or what they offer (product/services) -- I help them evolve beyond building brand and awareness (“us”) to sparking conversation and action (‘we”).
My work ethos is built on the idea that listening is the first step to reaching the hearts and mind of your audience—whether they are customers, users, donors, activists or other stakeholders.
Thanks so much for sharing this application and its potential for use within our project in South Sudan. We will contact you further in the event our project gets greenlit. Only 3 more days of waiting! : ) We appreciate all the work you do on behalf of the disabled and hope to have an opportunity to work with you soon. -- Virginia
Many thanks for your support Malte, and for taking the time to discuss ways we might complement and enhance the work Light of the World is doing in both services and livelihoods for persons with disabilities should we get the green light to develop this idea!
Thank you so much Kat, we will most certainly document and share each step as well as plan to improve as we go, should we have an opportunity to be one of the winners. Was lovely to meet you at SF Design Week’s “Designing for Social Impact!” Readers, here’s a shout out of appreciation for Kat’s work-- she is a leader in the inclusive design “movement” and now Founder of KATA + @designdotco.
