The Power of SHE
Companies with women in leadership perform better, but women are underrepresented. On International Women’s Day 2017, State Street Global Advisors placed Fearless Girl in New York’s financial district to ignite a conversation about the power of women in leadership. She generated over a billion impressions on Twitter in the first 12 hours. In three days she drove average daily trading volume of the SHE fund up 384%.

The McWhopper Proposal
In 2015, Burger King was outspent, underarmed and overwhelmed in the incredibly competitive fast food category. Our idea began with an open letter in the New York Times; a peace offering to our biggest rival. Immediately the McWhopper idea took on a life of its own, making headlines across the country. While the campaign twisted its way through popular culture we continued to stoke the flames with iconic billboard placements, social influencers and a carefully crafted media kit disguised as a website. Although the offer was declined, the campaign was an overwhelming success - shifting all brand measures, selling a truckload of Burgers. Oh, and we helped World Peace, too...

Groceries Not Guns is the ultimate example of driving effectiveness. Due to the explosion of awareness, public engagement, and ultimately the policy changes it brought, the ROI of our efforts is incalculable. All proving that pivoting our target from Government to Corporate America was a battle winning strategy in the war on gun reform.
