Clarendon Group launched in 2000 as a group of young working moms convinced they could continue to make a difference professionally while also raising growing families.  We did really good work for clients doing great things -- extending health care coverage, launching major real estate projects and luxury retailers, guiding university leaders on strategy and communications, polishing hospital brands, and helping win ballot initiatives that increased voting rights and affordable housing.  It was fun. 


Clarendon Group continues to work at the intersection of strategy, communications, content, and social impact. We draw on the talents of colleagues and affiliates around the world for projects in media relations, crisis communications, digital and social media, communications strategy, social impact strategy, and projects in film, audio media and speechwriting. We have advised public and private sector leaders, multi-national corporations and non-profits, and the world's most respected philanthropies, colleges and universities.  


We are smart and trustworthy strategists, writers and producers, partners, and opportunity-spotters. We are a group of professionals who are constantly energized and inspired by the way words, stories, and images -- online, on screen, out loud -- can shape and change the world. We bring a commitment to excellence to all we do.
