A unique team

Joni Wickham and Sly James spent eight years together rebuilding the confidence of a city that needed a reason to feel good about itself again.

We now apply our experience, expertise, and diverse perspectives to help clients with strategic communications, crisis communications, government relations, public policy, political strategy and mediations. We’ve been in trenches together finding solutions and developing strategies under circumstances that felt like scenes from West Wing one day, Veep the next, and Parks and Recreation the day after that. We know what it’s like to live under the microscope every single day. And we know how to not only achieve goals, but surpass them.

We collaborate with our clients to promote and advance strategies that foster effective leadership, good governance, and cutting-edge solutions. With us, you get an award-winning, one-of-a-kind team who won 16 elections over eight years in the Kansas City mayor’s office and have become renowned across the country for getting things done with their own unique style.
