Following Nashville Next, the city's next 25 - year general planning process, we began working on a series of strategic planning projects with Metro departments.

We disrupt the status quo. 

We don't believe in business as usual. Building trust or a brand goes deeper than writing a press release or sending a tweet. Instead, our commitment is to make our campaigns accessible to a diverse cross section of community members. That happens by developing a true connection with a variety of communities, not just the general consumer market, and targeting the communication strategies to support the needs of each audience.  Simply, we believe our responsibility is to listen more than we talk, have a neighborhood discussion rather than send a mass email blast, or develop a blog, video, or podcast series versus pitching a story to the media. We want to shift a culture, change an audiences behavior, and connect with the human emotion to develop trust and a deeper impact. We aim to truly relate to the public. 

MEPR Agency - teamwork

We're stronger together.

We co-create greatness with our partners - clients and strategic collaborators. Our relationships are built on trust and a desire to dig deeper than {PR} business as usual. To continue our work, we're looking engage with organizations that believe "we're stronger together".  

We work with organizations, and the people behind them, that we can truly get behind. People we can trust and who value our brains. Those that understand our work is not a quick or immediate fix but one of clear thought and comprehensive strategy. Those who enjoy and appreciate, celebrate even, innovation and entrepreneurial creativity.  Those who understand we won't be pitching the media every other week, but their story will be told. Those who are looking for a global perspective through a hyper-local lens. Those who want to make an impact on a community (beyond what the media can reach) and that is often left out of the conversation. Those who want to build trust more than receiving likes. Those want a long term partnership.
