Partial Client List
Developed in response to the calamitous loss of trust in the financial system in 2008, The Power and Profitability of Trust was introduced to top-tier Financial Managers at Merrill Lynch.

The relationship with L3 Communications (one of the top 10 defense contractors) began as a producer of videos for their 3D airport scanners. The relationship quickly expanded into other product lines. Post 9/11, we brought L3 into a deal with the Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (CTPAT) under the auspices of US Customs. (see below).
CT-PAT stands for Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism. A program initiated by US Customs, it sought to create a world-wide network of all the businesses that traded internationally. The goal was to share and enforce best practices to combat terrorism. The entire supply chain - the linkages from a a shirt manufacturer in Mongolia to the shelves of Walmart - is ultimately vulnerable to terrorist activity. I helped put together a consortium between US Customs, L3 Communications, and Fed Ex to develop an online portal and knowledge management system for CT-PAT members.

Remember the cell phone controversy? Are they safe? We became both the marketing company and scientific advisors for TecnoZone. We travelled to Paris, arranged for scientific research at major universities, and developed one of the most provocative marketing campaigns of its day, bringing attention to the issue of cell phone safety. An exciting time battling major corporate efforts to suppress exposure of the published scientific data that cell phone radiation does impact the human health.
Peace Starz was a collaboration with the late Reverend William Grant. We created a program to promote cooperation between warring factions - both in the inner city environments and internationally.
