Trust is the ultimate result. Trust advances important ideas and moves the sales needle. It drives donations and is at the heart of our most powerful brands. And it can be the difference between a small stumble and a debilitating crisis. Nothing — no clever ad, social campaign or other short-term attention maneuver done in a vacuum — has equal value.

West Third Group helps organizations create, build and maintain trust. Because anything less is just noise. 


Public Relations icon


In policy, politics or even Main-Street business, nothing happens until two conditions are fulfilled: You have to be seen, and you have to be trusted. We deliver results across the full spectrum of earned, owned, shared and paid media to deliver the authority and engagement that is more than a good idea — it’s what buyers and other decision makers demand before engaging with any organization.

Solutions include: Media and social media relations, corporate social responsibility, community relations, corporate newsroom services, event publicity, public-opinion research, behavior-change campaigns and others.

Public Affairs icon


At the nexus of public policy, public opinion and politics, do you know your organization’s next move? Important ideas, almost universally, are ideas that face opposition — for every proposed advancement, there is an adversary; for every cry of “forward,” voices shout back with “Wait!” It’s not a marketplace of ideas — it’s a battlespace. And West Third Group helps clients win.

Solutions include: Grassroots coalition building and activation, legislative outreach, expert tesitmony, policy analysis, opposition research, coalition development, online campaigns, stakeholder mapping and engagement, and direct advocacy.

Crisis icon


In a crisis, preparedness and sureness of vision are absolutely necessary — one wrong step and an organization’s very existence is on trial in the court of public opinion.
