As the unique collection of more than 60 human service agencies in Franklin County, G2G consulting helped us synchronize the multiplicity of health and human services into a succinct message to local and elected officials. They led our successful advocacy campaign to deliver this message to government.

I've always known the value of government affairs, but thought we were too early to get any attention on Capitol Hill. G2G has consistently over-delivered on our behalf, gaining high level access in D.C. to champion our technologies and federal appropriations to accelerate our development.

I hired G2G to manage an important advocacy campaign for our organization and over 60 organizational members of our statewide coalition in Ohio. G2G created a comprehensive government affairs strategy that covered organizing a grassroots campaign, writing legislation, securing legislative champions, planning events with public officials, developing messages for the legislature and media, tracking what was happening in the legislature and advising our team on when to engage and deliver the right message at the right time to have meaningful impact, and maintaining regular and clear communications with me. Thanks to the G2G team being so strategic, hardworking, thorough, and well-connected, we were effective in raising our profile, shaping the legislative process, developing new relationships with decision-makers, and securing funding in the biennial budget.

Boys & Girls Clubs of Cleveland has been working with G2G for the past 5 years. The relationship with G2G has led to a deeper understanding of the mission of the Boys & Girls Clubs with our elected officials. They are leading our efforts at the state level for the Ohio Alliance for Boys & Girls Clubs and have organized Statehouse events, advocacy campaigns and funding awards in the state budget. G2G was instrumental in building our relationship with Attorney General DeWine which led to significant additional funding for Boys & Girls Clubs of Ohio and our Cleveland locations. Overall, they have improved our awareness in Columbus significantly. They are professional, hardworking and understand what it takes to obtain funding and support from the government.

I initially hired G2G to pursue federal grants for rare cancer research. In the past 18 months, they have planned, engineered, and executed an entire, comprehensive initiative to fundamentally change the way our country spends federal dollars on cancer research and development. Of their own initiative, G2G has drafted comprehensive policy proposals, submitted hundreds of appropriations requests, held over 1,000 meetings with various Congressional offices and agencies, and set up Congressional briefings with partners such as the NCI, NCATS, Biden Cancer Initiative, the NIH and many others. Liz and her team have blown away every expectation - I could not recommend them enough. They have my unending gratitude, respect, and will continue to be partners with SHEPHERD for a very long time.

Liz Powell and the G2G team are experts at using their influence and knowledge of government to add value to clients. They developed a strategy and executed it by building relationships with Members of Congress, including organizing tours for them of our facility and meetings with them in Washington, D.C. G2G drafted and inserted language into legislation and communicated with federal departments on our behalf. It required significant coordination with our congressional delegation and some of the most powerful people in Congress. Thanks to Liz we succeeded in enacting the legislation and continue to enjoy great relationships with these Members of Congress.
