Compelling stories based on your data or work
You turned your data into an awesome analysis and report or publication.
It’s no longer good enough to let your awesome work sit on a shelf for only other researchers to understand. Work with MMC to get your results out there. We help you translate your evidence back into the narratives that motivated your work in the first place. Reach different audiences to inform, inspire and empower….and, ok, influence.
Podcasts. Blogs. Videos. Television. Newsletters. Strategy. And, more.
You have some great stories to complement your technical reports and presentations. Or, you need to keep hundreds of stakeholders updated.
Your stakeholders, clients, funders and the general public want more than text-filled newsletters, emails or blogs. Take your communications up a notch. We help you choose the best creative tools for you to really reach large audiences, especially through mass media. And, we can produce it for you.
Production. Connections. Community Engagement.
You have a great fiction or non-fiction story with a public health or health services angle, or you are developing a show, documentary, film or online series. From a communications perspective, there is no “Now what?.” Still, we can be a great resource for you, too.
+ ORIGINAL CONTENT. Podcasts. Blogs. Films. Events. And, more.
