ABOUT ADEO

We are communications, advocacy and brand leaders who revere authenticity, respect nuance and value collaboration.

Our team builds public education campaigns that break through, delivers relationships with the people and institutions that matter, facilitates meaningful coalitions and fosters consensus to win support for our clients—across industry, interest and approvals at all levels of government.

Decades of work in diverse, and often contentious public affairs engagement has fostered what we believe is a unique perspective on impacting policy and process. We know what works, and often more important what doesn’t work, in educating decision makers and their constituencies.

This experience, coupled with an unwavering commitment to innovation, drives our appreciation for the idea that what we learned 20 minutes ago may often be more relevant and compelling than something we’ve practiced for 20 years. While staying true to the basic principles of human emotion and psychology, we thrive at the cutting edge.

Where politics and policy meet, we know how to influence. We are strategists and problem solvers, sophisticated advocates and community organizers and thoughtful advisors. We find solutions that deliver wins for both our clients and the constituencies they serve – for it is only at this delicate intersection that real engagement and change can occur.

Our clients are leaders in energy, health care, retail, real estate and non-profit issue advocacy —and nearly any other sector seeking support from state and local governments and the people they represent.

Our work has secured historic public financing approvals for local infrastructure projects, shifted public dialogue around intensely emotional issue narratives, positioned executives as sought-after industry thought leaders and supported local organizations to inspire their memberships for greater community benefit – inspiring loyalty, commitment and action to achieve measurable results.
