Can you help strengthen my company in the Boston market?
The Boston market is unlike any other major city in the country. Whether your company has always called Boston home, or you’ve recently relocated, the landscape is ever-changing, and so are your company’s goals.
Whether its news coverage, speaking engagements or relationship building, McDermott Ventures will develop a plan that incorporates multiple strategies to get your company where it aims to be in this quickly growing market.
Can you help with my media interview?
Doing an interview with a newspaper or magazine reporter can be just as nerve-racking as a radio or TV interview, and we understand that. You have to be calm, confident and aware of the reporter\’s objectives, and that takes preparation. McDermott Ventures can train your spokespeople as a part of a long-term media relations campaign or a single situation.

Do you do short term projects?
Absolutely. Often when you think of consultants you think long-term and expensive. Not necessarily. McDermott Ventures often works with clients on a project or short-term basis.
Whether it’s hosting a messaging roundtable with your employees and senior executives, developing a media plan or helping to launch a specific initiative, McDermott Ventures can assist your company in achieving your goals for one-month, or one year.
What is it like to work with McDermott Ventures?

We have long-term clients for whom we are partners and trusted advisors. We are entrepreneurial and driven to achieve timely solutions. We are available, thoughtful and connected.
Which organizations should I get involved with?
This depends on your goals and if you don’t know what your goals are, we can help you with that as well. Understanding that the resource we are all short on is time, we offer recommendations on where your company\’s involvement will be the most effective, depending on your desired end result. From the obscure event to the most important relationships– we know and we can connect you.
How can I make the most of my charitable dollars?
There are so many reputable and valuable organizations in Boston, that in an effort to help all of them, we spread ourselves too thin to make an impact. McDermott Ventures believes in the silver bullet, rather than a shotgun approach.
We can help you determine charitable organizations that need a champion and create a mutually beneficial and hopefully long term partnership. In the end you have a larger impact and therefore more public relations opportunities.
Do you have experience working with the government?
We have over 25 years of experience working with city and state decision makers. McDermott Ventures has navigated the political landscape over 25 years, three Boston Mayors and five state Governors. We are involved and active in the local and political landscape.
