“I hired Joy Howell’s firm Cambridge Strategic Partners to provide consulting services for my start-up venture as the first Vice Provost for Online Education and Academic Innovation at George Washington University. With enthusiasm and entrepreneurial spirit, Joy helped me build a comprehensive list of the hundred-plus online programs at GW, create a website for GW Online, and construct a working set of budget projections for the creation of a comprehensive office to support online course production and quality control.

She was a quick study, as she learned the complex nuances of academic politics and brought order to the chaotic shards of data we assembled from diverse sources all over campus. And if any new emergency popped up or new project presented itself, Joy always dove in with a get-it-done attitude that made the process of drinking from a firehose consistently fun.

In addition to her bright can-do spirit, Joy’s strength is that she never lets her ego get in the way. She offers advice, but never overwhelms, and she enthusiastically can turn on a dime if a new project needs her attention, all without complaint. She quickly builds networks and makes connections.

I enjoyed working with her and hope to have the opportunity to do so again.”

“Our firm has worked with other firms, but we have found CSP to be the most capable, responsive and cost-effective media consultants in the field. In one major litigation matter, CSP was able to formulate and implement a media outreach campaign within a matter of days that generated favorable coverage in multiple major markets nationwide for a fraction of the cost associated with similar projects undertaken by other public relations firms.”
