The past 25 years have been an amazing journey, full of incredible people, great clients, rich blessings, and countless opportunities for Public Strategies to create real solutions for some of the world’s most pressing issues. As we celebrate our silver anniversary, we also celebrate the amazing people who make up our team. Their inspired ideas, contagious enthusiasm, and relentless dedication to our clients are integral to our success—and we are more than a little proud of them.
Since our founding in 1990 by Mary Myrick, we have never stopped envisioning, developing, measuring, and refining solutions to meet the needs of our clients and community. As a result, our best-practice programs have been studied, replicated, and regarded nationwide for excellence. Our organization is nationally accredited by the Council on Accreditation, and our marketing and events team consistently receives awards for creativity across a range of mediums including web, print, and video. Public Strategies team members are highly sought to teach others about ways to improve performance and achieve the outcomes they seek. Our corporate and non-profit clients have increased their impacts and results through working partnerships with Public Strategies.
We are proud of every one of our clients, and we consider them friends, colleagues, and people with shared purpose. Through the talents of our team, in collaboration with our partners, and with the trust and confidence of those we serve, Public Strategies has been able to achieve some incredible things over the course of our history. Below is a brief glimpse into the scale and nature of that work.
Public Strategies began as a public relations firm, and our passion for communications, strategy, design, storytelling, and event management has only grown since then. Through the acquisition of Cicero International Advertising, we have expanded our ability to deliver award-winning marketing services for clients across diverse industries. Highly regarded for our strategic communications expertise, we consistently excel at effective communications to a wide range of audiences.
A leader in the fields of family and relationship strengthening, Public Strategies has helped hundreds of thousands build stronger and more resilient families. Through programs such as Family Expectations, the Oklahoma Marriage Initiative/Project Relate, the National Healthy Marriage Resource Center, Thriving Marriages, and TRUE Dads, we help equip individuals to succeed in their most important relationships.
Businesses, non-profits, and government agencies have come to rely on Public Strategies to develop and implement approaches that yield results. Our innovative and performance-driven solutions have brought us national and local recognition for excellence, but more importantly, they have helped our customers address some of their most significant problems. Combining high standards, hard work, compassion for others, and best-in-their field professionals is at the heart of everything we do.
At Public Strategies, we invest the time and energy necessary to develop evidence-based practices that result in positive outcomes. Our place-based strategy, Whatever It Takes, combines all the elements of community into a seamless approach designed to turn intergenerational poverty into plans for the future. We count it a privilege to be “difference-makers” and to have our work serve as a best-practice guide for others seeking to positively impact their part of the world.
Public Strategies fulfills its mission through strategic alliances, excels at helping clients form similar collaborations, mentors small businesses and non-profits in establishing effective partnerships, and provides training and coaching nationally to groups seeking to leverage their relationships for good. We are expert conveners, skilled in forging partnerships that yield results and forming friendships that will last a lifetime.
Our cross-functional understanding of project management, research, training, and communications has helped Public Strategies be at the core of best practice work across a number of industries. It is, however, our commitment to ongoing learning and improvement that sets us apart. Whether for ourselves or our clients, we establish and achieve standards for excellence that others seek to follow.
Above all, at Public Strategies we are driven by the desire to affect meaningful change and to leave the world a better place. From our incredible team’s dedication, to our work with our strategic partner, It’s My Community Initiative, to our partnerships with systems, organizations, and individuals whose impact literally span the globe, each day brings another opportunity to see progress and success. With 25 years behind us, we look forward to the next 25 years of partnering with others to DO GOOD WELL!
