Jane Elder Strategies
Clients: Introduction

Our diverse clients have one thing in common:  They're looking for excellent work that will provide a solution to a particular challenge.  We take pride in doing our best to meet that expectation.

We've worked with major “green group” national environmental organizations, such as National Wildlife Federation, Sierra Club, and the National Parks Conservation Association, and key regional players, such as the Alliance for the Great Lakes and the Healthy Lakes, Healthy Lives Campaign.  We’ve worked with some of the movers and shakers in state environmental policy through our partnership with the State Environmental Leadership Program.  We've worked with key players in environmental education — both formal and informal institutions — and with collaborative nationwide partnerships to shape agendas around big issues like global warming and biodiversity.


Here’s what some of our clients have to say about our work.


“Jane Elder Strategies combines communications savvy with creative and policy know-how.  She works for her clients as though she were on staff:  as a former executive director, she understands that quality work products have to be delivered with the bottom line always in mind.”

—Cam Davis, Executive Director, Alliance for the Great Lakes


“Jane Elder helped us transition from an organization that reacted to the news on our issues to an organization that shapes the news on our issues.  We are much more deliberate, strategic, and proactive in our communications as a result of her counsel and guidance.”

—Lana Pollack, Executive Director, Michigan Environmental Council


“Jane understood what I wanted and worked with me to produce exactly what I needed.”

—Chad Lord, Policy Director, National Parks Conservation Association


“Jane Elder is one of the premier environmental communicators in our country-an assessment shared by everyone I know who has worked with her.  She has extraordinary knowledge in her field-the kind that only rich experience in networking, researching, and personal commitment can bring.  She is a consummate professional and a superb writer, with a personality as clear and warm as a springtime day in Wisconsin.  I will work with her every chance I get.”

—Bill Becker, Presidential Climate Action Project
