Public Strategies is a service offered by Knox McLaughlin Gornall & Sennett, P.C. providing strategic communications, public affairs and public policy consulting services to private and public entities in the Erie and northwestern Pennsylvania region.
We are local, connected, and invested. As attorneys, we understand how business and government operate and provide a uniquely practical perspective into our regional governments and businesses. As community leaders, we actively cultivate relationships in government and regional development organizations — relationships that are critical to the success of major projects.
We are prepared to translate this knowledge and these relationships into tangible success.
Government and business often desire to work together, but ultimately they speak different languages and must serve different and demanding constituencies. We are fluent in both government and business. We have the necessary expertise to help business and government articulate their vision and achieve their goals.
To achieve a goal, you must first articulate your goal. The path to success begins by articulating your goal to the right audience in a strategic, consistent and coordinated manner.
Our professionals work with you to develop a Communication and Action Plan (CAP), which not only identifies what you should communicate, but also to whom, when, where and how, all in a manner that matches your project goals.
Achieving “change” in our local and state governments often requires conducting an awareness campaign on two fronts: raising awareness that an issue exists, and educating specifically targeted constituents to help them understand why they should care and why they should act to support your issue.
Whether it requires designing web-based grassroots efforts, coordinating traditional educational and advocacy campaigns, or facilitating public meetings, we have the necessary resources and experience to help you meet your goals.
As government revenues decrease, government operations are also becoming increasingly complex. Your business often must adapt to work within government’s multifaceted structure to remain successful. Whether you need to develop new models for service delivery, compete for work, or create more efficiency, we have the experience, resources, and relationships to advise on the latest and best methodologies.
