We are ADVO.
Greg and I met at the prestigious Yale School of Drama in 1998. We’ve been roommates, shared the stage, produced plays and film together, fought -each other and Placido Domingo- on the stage at the Metropolitan Opera in New York.
When we left school with our Master Degrees, we knew that beyond acting, we wanted to use our skills to do something that matters. To make a contribution. As actors, we believe strongly in the power of authentic communication, and it’s power to shape minds and hearts. We knew that if we could put that power to work for others, we could guide them to move mountains.
Our first clients were our brothers, both attorneys. In working with them, we discovered that the challenges attorneys face in a courtroom are the challenges we all face in ANY ROOM. When we applied aspects of our acting training to these challenges, the results were transformational. From there, we were inspired to develop a process rooted in the principles of performance. Actors and business professionals have something in common. In order to succeed, they need to make others believe. At ADVOgroup, INC., we call that connecting others to your fight. Inspiring them to share your vision and moving them to take action.
The resulting principles-based training, Kinetic Communication™, develops your ability to communicate with purpose and intention, in a way that inspires any audience to want to hear more.
Since 2010, our clients have ranged from boutique law firms, to major hospitals and biotech corporations; from individual thought-leaders to universities training the next generation of social justice leaders. Being part of the process of their immense growth, both professionally and personally, is what fuels our purpose.
