Molly Brady

Past President, Oregon Fuels Association

Our organization has improved leaps and bounds with the help of The Galvanizing Group. From a strategic name change of our two largest programs to a customized Internal Brand Strategy, we are finally in a place to where our staff has the confidence to cut past the internal ‘marketing speak’ when speaking with our stakeholders. Our organization (Board of Directors and staff) can now effectively convey our complex program in a way that is simple, effective and consistent.

Janet Kenefsky-Henderson

Deputy Director, Western United States Agricultural Trade Association

We engaged The Galvanizing Group to work with our association’s charitable foundation on reworking the foundation’s brand and developing a new brand message. Ellen Galvin was professional and easy to work with. She walked us through each step of the process to help us clarify and distill our key messages and foundation goals from many divergent ones, ultimately creating a brand document that we are using as our roadmap going forward. Ellen’s knowledge, experience and passion for her work made what can be a challenging process for an organization a much more pleasant and gratifying experience for us.
