My New Company: The Mannakee Circle Group

Today I am launching a new company called The Mannakee Circle Group. This will be an extension of some of the work I already do, but it also represents a renewed focus on helping organizations engage better with their public. The name comes from a crossroads of sorts in the town where I live — read the story about that here.

Visit our web site here:

The Mannakee Circle Group

We work with organizations to help them do their work better– advising on strategy and social media, and designing, executing, and telling the story of large civic projects. We understand how people interact with issues, how they talk to one another, how to hear what they are saying, and how to speak to them to be heard.

We will help you improve public life.

  • We can advise your organization how to use social media and how to connect that with public benefit.
  • We design civic projects and help organizations map out their strategies.
  • And we develop discussion materials about issues. This is harder than you might think to do well.

If you are a public leader and are wondering if we might be able to help you with a project, initiative, or problem – chances are we can.

Drop me a line at and let’s talk.

P.S. The logo is a general representation of an aerial view of Mannakee Circle.
