Stand up. Stand out.

Flamingo Strategies tells stories that connect business strategy to engagement.

Stories of impact and purpose. 

I serve education institutions, businesses, and marketing agencies in need of support. And I help individuals of all ages access their creativity, attract notice, and navigate education and career transition through the stories they tell.

The narrative arc

Over time, individual stories build larger narratives that persuade, inspire and serve a higher cause. I write and provide strategy for:

  • Interviews, profiles, features

  • Leadership communications

  • Organizational and resource audits

  • Internal and external communications strategies

  • Messaging workshops

  • Digital and print marketing materials

  • Coaching of writers and media relations teams

“The interview, conducted by Barbara Brooks, is one of the most engaging I’ve encountered...[It] manages to sound like a genuine, unscripted and thoughtful conversation about one writer’s understanding of how fiction gets made.”
