VALEO is a strategic communications firm serving as embedded partners to corporate, nonprofit and trade association clients.
VALEO supports clients of all sizes across the public, corporate, nonprofit and trade association sectors. Here are some recent accolades from our clients.
I could always count on the VALEO team to be there when I needed them. From last-minute calls requesting that they to spend a full-day in the corporate office offering their counsel on rapidly changing issues, to strategic planning a six-month arc of activities for an announcement, the team was responsive, attentive and productive at all times.
When VALEO graciously offered to provide their three hour media and speaker training session on a pro bono basis, I eagerly took them up on their offer. While I received similar training nearly a decade ago, VALEO’s training was much more comprehensive and tailored to my specific needs. In particular, Michael Mills and the team provided their extensive knowledge of media relations and public speaking to help better prepare me for handling media inquiries and delivering more impactful speeches, which are two important components of my job. In addition to providing the basics, they were able to provide real life examples of several of the techniques from their own experience which helped to drive home the lessons learned. I would highly recommend the VALEO team for media, PR, and speaker training.
VALEO guided Worldpay US through several major announcements for the U.S. brand, including the acquisition of two companies, a national headquarters move, and the gift of $1 million to Georgia Tech’s Advanced Technology Development Center (ATDC) to further entrepreneurship in the FinTech industry. Their comprehensive PR campaign catapulted the Worldpay US brand and company executives to top of mind status for media, the business community and elected officials at the state and local levels. Eighteen-months later, the brand is still top-of-mind in local media and any time the payments industry is discussed.
Michael and the VALEO team helped bring the ATPC to life, from an idea on a napkin to an organization that just celebrated its two-year anniversary. They are instrumental to the success of the Coalition, working alongside the state and federal government affairs consultant teams, creating content for newsletters, website, and earned media in Atlanta, Washington, D.C., and trade publications. The firm’s expertise in planning, and day-of operations has helped produce numerous successful events with participation of media, high-ranking elected officials and industry executives.
