David has an excellent grasp of how to use communications to increase an association’s influence and impact, as well as a political sense and an eye for detail that were valuable in helping us deliver more for our members. As an outside consultant, he not only offered excellent advice, but he immediately blended into our team and worked with little supervision to take our communications products, tactics and approaches to a higher level.

Brandon Fried

Executive Director, Airforwarders Association

David has a extraordinary ability to bring out the best from a team of subject matter experts when we are trying to develop reports and other communication products that can resonate with the public at large. Not only are his writing and project management skills valuable in ensuring a high quality result, but he also has an easygoing manner that is enormously helpful in keeping complex projects with many contributors on track. We have enjoyed working with him and will hire him again! He always delivers, and does so with grace and commitment.

Margaret Zeigler

Executive Director, Global Harvest Initiative

David's work and products are of solid quality, with attention to technical details and great design. Not only his work is outstanding but his attention to clients' needs is remarkable.

Margherita Licata

HIV and AIDS Branch, International Labour Organization

David is very talented and creative, giving every project 100%. He's personable, reliable, and knowing he's there has enabled me to take creative risks as he has the skill to pull all the diverse pieces back into a coherent whole. Recommend him whole-heartedly!

Ginya Truitt Nakata

The Nature Conservancy

David is a pro's pro. He has an innate ability to capture politics and combine it with his excellent PR skills. He helped craft policy messages that resonate with association members and are effective in reaching the legislators and regulators we seek to educate on their behalf.

Clint Fisher

President and CEO, Fisher Strategies

His ability to transform technical jargon into readable copy and to deliver it on time has been the hallmark of his contribution. In addition he is personable and uncomplicated, not always the attributes of creative personalities. David's previous work experience in Geneva allows him to understand the requirements of the international marketplace and to easily adapt to various client requirements.

Tony Murdoch

The Murdoch Group, Geneva

David is great at getting to the heart of the communications goal, always has politically savvy advice, and is very fast! Plus he is always a pleasure to work with. I recommend David St. John highly! 

Danielle Deane

The Raben Group, Washington

David came on board as a consultant to work on planning and managing the launch of a major publication, the Rural Poverty Report 2011. We were impressed with how he was able to hit the ground running, fit well into our team, and begin delivering outstanding results in a very short time frame. In addition to contributing his own experience-based ideas and innovations to the process, he has demonstrated a capability to produce an enormous amount of high-quality work in a challenging and deadline-driven environment. And he handles it all with good humor, which greatly adds to his value. We really enjoy working with him.

Farhana Haque Rahman

International Fund for Agricultural Development

As a communications advisor to the Joint Center, David has been a highly valued contributor to our public outreach efforts. I have greatly appreciated his eye for quality, his excellent writing skills and his ability to help us frame effective messages on any issue.

Ralph B. Everett

President & CEO, Joint Center for Economic and Political Studies (2007-2013), Washington

Working as a consultant to the FTTH Council, David built our public relations program from the ground up. Over the past several years his efforts have resulted in the Council now being perceived as a highly professional and substantial organization. He is an excellent PR strategist who also has the hands-on skills to carry his ideas through to completion and success. Because of David’s energy and drive, he accomplishes much with little to no direction. We have enjoyed working with him and greatly appreciate the value he has contributed to our organization.

Joe Savage

President, Fiber to the Home Council (2005 - 2011)
