Culture-Change Communications

“As the head of Employee Communications, Linda Ames skillfully engaged Fluor Corporation’s 40,000 employees in high-priority change-management initiatives, including SAP implementation and the integration of a comprehensive health, safety & environmental system throughout the company’s global operations.  Her development and leadership of multifaceted, two-way communications programs directly led to the desired outcomes with both salaried and craft employees.”

Strategic Communications

“Our training website needed a revamp.  Now our story and messaging are clear and vibrant.  And the site is much easier to navigate.  Ames & Associates also developed a marketing and communications strategy and as a result more people are drawn to the website and registering for ToP courses.”
