Our Work

Phillips 66, Houston

Phillips-66It’s an exciting time to be part of the dynamic energy industry, working with a company that is committed to safely and responsibly capturing the opportunities of the North American energy renaissance. We feel privileged to have supported Phillips 66’s Communications and Public Affairs group since the company emerged in 2012 as an independent energy manufacturing and logistics company – and before that, for its heritage company ConocoPhillips.

We are called on for a broad scope of support, from strategy and planning through  execution. We have particularly enjoyed helping its leaders give voice to their vision for the company, through media interactions, written communications, speeches and presentations.

National Engineering Forum, Washington

National-Engineering-ForumWe love working with engineers and helping drive awareness of the important work they do. Together, with the founders of the National Engineering Forum (NEF) – Lockheed Martin and the Council on Competitiveness – we are supporting a growing movement to address the challenges facing engineering in the U.S.

We design communications for NEF’s series of C-suite level dialogues in engineering hubs across the country. We manage everything from traditional PR to new media and “turn up the volume” on engineering’s impact on our nation’s security and prosperity. We partner with our hosts at top universities and national labs to celebrate the unique engineering culture of each city we visit.

And we’re excited to help launch NEF’s new initiative for 2014, NEFGen, to capture the energy and excitement of students and young professionals around these engineering challenges.

Ameena Project, Portland, Oregon, and Kiang’ombe, Kenya

Ameena-ProjectIn 2012, we came alongside the 100 percent volunteer-driven nonprofit Ameena Project to raise awareness for its mission to provide regular nourishment, academic instruction, and structured social activity to children living in extreme poverty. Ameena Project’s current effort is a preschool within the small and isolated community of Kiang’ombe, Kenya.

We provide pro-bono, event-specific PR consultation and execution for Ameena Project fundraisers – everything from landing coverage for benefit concerts featuring a former American Idol contestant, to a series of events featuring Ironman and professional endurance athletes. In addition, members of Team Mathews help produce Ameena Project’s electronic newsletter, which you are welcome to sign up for here.

CNN, Hong Kong

As you might imagine, launching a new television network isn’t easy. In addition to all the technical issues, there’s the matter of making sure you have a staff operating with a shared editorial vision.  Especially if you’re CNN.  That’s where we came in to help.  We developed two training modules for CNN Content Sales as part of its training and consulting program for broadcast affiliates.

We love helping clients communicate better through targeted training and coaching in key skill areas, such as writing, presentations and multi-media development. We serve new and established clients with a wide variety of customized courses. Each has focus and structure that is tailored to your unique needs and utilizes your work products. You will never get “pre-packaged” training. Interested in helping your team grow? Reach out to us!
