At Beacon North Strategies (BNS), we do not like boxes. The world and the political context are constantly changing. Your government relations efforts must be creative, dynamic, and adaptive to cut through the noise. With a career in lobbying, and experience in podcasting, blogging and content marketing, our founder enjoys solving problems, and (when required) disturbing the status quo.
