SEASONED PROFESSIONAL COMMUNICATIONS SERVICES FOR COMMUNITIES, INFRASTRUCTURE PROJECTS, AND NONPROFITS

Successful community and infrastructure projects need public involvement processes and information programs that are open and honest, that engage citizens and address their concerns.

Nonprofits need communication projects and programs that are focused and affordable, and that fill specific gaps in their outreach and fundraising efforts.

As Hayward LLC, I offer all of the above, at competitive rates backed by integrity and a desire to do good things with my talents.

George Hayward’s 30-year Public Relations career began in the U.S. Air Force, where he served more than 12 years on active duty and was an award-winning military journalist.

 

That sense of service has been part of his character ever since, and after several years of corporate and agency p.r. work in a range of roles and industries, he realized that what matters most is believing in what you do.

Today, he focuses his professional services on projects, organizations and nonprofits that make their communities better.

GEORGE’S PAST INFRASTRUCTURE PROJECTS

The projects below have given George a deep understanding of the localized concerns of many Colorado Springs neighborhoods and the critical role PI plays in such projects, whether public involvement during design or public information during construction. With their varied budgets, scopes, issues and challenges, these projects give George insight when assessing PI needs and scoping projects. They have taught him the importance of remaining flexible in scope, because every project has at least one PI issue that was not anticipated when the project was conceived.
