“When business gets complicated, and it always does, I believe it’s critical to take a moment to think and get the best advice you can. For years, I’ve turned to Gagen MacDonald for that counsel. The Gagen team has supported me through almost every imaginable corporate change, crisis and opportunity – to solve problems, address issues and bring really good communications to my organization. I have relied on their judgment, expertise and deep commitment through mergers, bankruptcy, executive changes, you name it. I trust them to work thoughtfully, fast and well and to help me come through, crisis after crisis, announcement after announcement, change after change.
It has been one of the longest and most fortunate partnerships of my career, and I am grateful for their support."
Director, Communications | Fortune 500 medical devices and equipment manufacturer
“Gagen MacDonald has become my single go-to resource for consulting and advice regarding change communications. My organization has undergone significant changes in the past two years, and there’s more coming. Gagen spent countless hours really understanding the depth and breadth of the changes impacting the company and our people and provided solid and insightful advice on how to communicate through these changes.
One aspect of Gagen's advice that particularly struck me was the constact focus on employee engagement...
...and its importance to everything we were doing. I wouldn’t hesitate to call Gagen again for any communication project, large or small."
