You have ambitious plans.
Perhaps you want to:
- increase funding (or sales)
- promote an event, study, book or film
- influence public opinion (and action)
- pass legislation
- pressure leaders or corporations
- or simply be recognized as an innovator among your peers, funders, media and raving fans.
The challenge is that you’re overworked, maybe underfunded, or simply stuck in a rut, not sure what to do.
You need help. But maybe you can’t afford a full-fledged contract. Maybe you just need a perspective shift or some quick, actionable advice.
This package is for you. It’s designed to be fast, affordable, and impactful. An antidote injection.
It's also a low-risk way to determine if we're a good fit for a more involved engagement.
What you get
- one-on-one consulting session(s) — up to 2 hours each, as needed
(in-person or by phone/Skype, as convenient to both)
- pre-session immersion
- email follow-up
What we’ll address
Strategy or tactics, depending. Areas could include:
- Strategic Communications
- Branding + Messaging
strategy, identity, framing, positioning, naming
- PR + Publicity
campaigns, media relations/outreach, influencer + partner/grassroots outreach, online/social media, book + film publicity, event/conference publicity
- Content + Creative
content planning, PR + marketing materials (newsletter, website, collateral), storytelling, writing + editing, design
How we’ll work
I’ll send a pre-session questionnaire so you can think deeply about your issues and get a good sense of what they are before we speak. Then we can really dig deep during our session. We’ll discuss the areas you should be addressing, begin to work through the issue(s) you’re struggling with the most, and decide on some tangible steps to help solve them.
Once you’ve had a chance to digest, you might have more questions. I’ll be available by email for some post-session support and may send additional thoughts and resources.
The whole process could take as little as a few days, depending on scheduling availability.
Hi, I’m Scott. Equal parts strategist, publicist, marketer, social entrepreneur, nonprofit leader, and writer — and founder of Antidote Collective — I bring 20 years of experience and a broad perspective promoting ideas, products and services in various culture-shaping domains.
I’ve done media for the Dalai Lama and publicity for Phil Donahue’s anti-war film Body of War, PR for healthcare "whistleblower" Wendell Potter and groups like Rainforest Action Network and the Business Alliance for Local Living Economies (BALLE), branding for Rippel Foundation, strategic communications for the Local Economies Project of the New World Foundation, and creative naming development for American Express and global visual rebranding support for Coca-Cola with Ogilvy & Mather’s Brand Integration Group (BIG).
I’ve helped clients on both US coasts and places in between, in Europe, and down under in Australia.
I also founded a social venture (BEAHIVE) and a nonprofit (Re>Think Local) and continue to lead both, and am a producer of Social Venture Institute / Hudson Valley and TEDxLongDock. These are just a few highlights. Read my full bio for more.

You may prepay by credit card, bank transfer or check.
I take pride in my work. If you find that this process is not helpful, I’ll try a different approach or offer a partial refund so that we’re reasonably and mutually satisfied.
If the fee is truly unaffordable, let me know. If I’m inspired by your work and feel it can have real impact, I’ll consider a sliding scale or barter or somesuch. Before trying to negotiate, though, I ask that you consider the true value of this process and the impact it could have on your work.
Contact me. Tell me what you’re struggling with and I’ll tell you if I may be able to help.
