Angela is strategic brand leader that I would recommend to any team or organization.  Her expertise and understanding of how to build brands helped us evolve one of the strategic pillars for the Holiday Inn brand globally.  In addition, her collaborative style was well received from the team and allowed her to lead from day one on the project.

BREAKTHROUGH Marketing Consulting did a tremendous job in delivering outstanding results for our statewide Georgia DRIVES campaign! The Georgia DRIVES project was a huge undertaking for the State of Georgia with 159 counties to resource and represent, in addition to multiple stakeholders to inform including the general public, government officials, law enforcement, business partners, and tax commissioners. Our project had a tight timeline and a lean budget, but Angela was able to develop a comprehensive marketing strategy and communication plan that met the needs of our various stakeholders and leveraged multimedia channels to drive awareness and prompt response from our customers. Breakthrough Marketing Consulting helped make our launch efforts both successful and effective!
