report refined and enhanced
top private university, its law school, and
a national foundation sponsored a major symposium
on the controversial Presidential election of
2002. All the parties were eager to get the
results of this symposium published on their
various web sites. But the first draft of the
symposium report, designed to distill the word-for-word
transcript of participant remarks, didn’t do
justice to the subtlety and intricacy of the
arguments. So the institutions turned to Communication
Partners to help them revise and edit this conference
report to reflect accurately the complex and
nuanced views of all the speakers who participated.

opportunity, helped senior management establish
a new set of customer and market categories,
worked closely with senior financial
staff on revenue and profit projections, and
helped codify and articulate key customer and
market value propositions for the firm.

can easily understand the concepts involved.
