What Others Say

We’re proud of the recommendations we receive from our clients! We’d love to help your organization as well. Give us a call.


In preparation for the 150th Boulder County Fair, we retained Stacy Cornay and Communication Concepts to conduct a series of focus groups to better understand the perceptions that exist about the Fair.  Finding that people love history, but didn’t feel totally engaged, Stacy developed a Communication Plan designed to create strategic ways to engage with all of the communities in Boulder County.

Among the highlights were efforts to ensure that the Fair was represented throughout the County.  Leading up to the Fair we attended events in each community including a steer visit to the Boulder Chamber and a cuddle cow visit to the Longmont Chamber. Proclamations were obtained from all County towns and cities.  Marketing efforts were specifically prepared for towns, cities, the County, media, and Chambers of Commerce.

Stacy also developed and oversaw a county-wide Business After Hours for all of the Chambers in the County.  Her professionalism and communication expertise provided a clear direction for a successful outcome.  We would recommend her to any organization.

Stacy led us through a Community Engagement process that enabled us to have a clearer understanding of our strengths, challenges, and ways to move forward in the short-term that will benefit us in the long-term. She was able to, through a variety of means, help us chart our course moving forward.”

“Stacy Cornay and Communication Concepts, facilitated 5 focus groups for the Boulder County Fair. Stacy planned, prepared and facilitated these sessions getting 10-15 people at a time. She explored a variety of topics but was able to hone in on some specifics that really help the Fair Board and support staff plan to plan the Boulder County Fair. Surprising to us was the reason that people come to the Fair aligns with our mission and that we need to continue in our grass roots educational programming. Stacy was very professional, provided a detailed report on each session and an overall consensus of the groups and was willing to meet with the Board. We recommend Stacy Cornay.”

“The Longmont EDP hired Stacy to provide media/PR training for both our staff and our Board of Directors in the wake of a complete re-branding of the organization. Stacy’s years of experience and knowledge of the subject were apparent, as was her understanding of her audience for each different session. Her approach to training created a comfortable and conversational environment in addressing a topic that might normally be intimidating. I would not hesitate to use or recommend others use Stacy’s services in the future.”
