The Ashford Agency.
Many years ago, I fell in love with faith-based and values-driven organizations because of their ability to build our communities and drive people to good actions in the world. Early on, I worked internationally for a global nonprofit. Later, I served as a college professor, finally, in executive leadership roles.
I realized then, as now, that these types of organizations--such as nonprofits, faith-based businesses, and Christian colleges--make the world go 'round. To the extent they succeed, our communities are a better place.
Too often, however, the people who are out there telling bad stories in the world hog the microphone and wield outsized-influence. That's why we, the Ashford Agency, help leaders move their organizations to center stage, take the mic, and tell a better story.
Let's partner together. We'll focus energy and resources on one, or a very few, pivotal objectives whose accomplishment will lead to a cascade of favorable outcomes.
