With a new vice president for University Communications, Brown University needed to know how many decentralized communications professionals were employed throughout the institution, and they were hoping to strengthen their core central marketing and communications unit. Working with Human Resources, a detailed staffing assessment was conducted. Recommendations were made for streamlining reporting lines, improving efficiencies and creating a greater sense of shared branding. The central office received recommendations for a new staffing plan that increased their ability to serve the rest of the university. By assessing its existing talent and taking inventory of outsourced services in areas like graphic design, photography, videography, writing and Web development, the University will be repurposing outsourced dollars to create a more robust and functional in-house staff.
Teaching teams to fish. Or, helping individuals to learn to fish. Both are important parts of organizational success. LML Marketing and Communications coaches professionals to navigate organizational structures, create presence for themselves and their responsibilities to senior administration. Knowing how to guide an organization toward shared messaging and create a strong sense of ownership and inclusion in the process is an art form. We help you know how to best approach branding in your organization.
We also help teams move from traditional structures that once focused on media relations and print publications to the digital era and working with nontraditional media to tell your story.
