I worked on a project with NewGround that involved six partners spread around the state. Nancy and her team were responsive to our many requests. We found them creative in their work and willing to take input from many sources. The project was completed on time and on budget! We will work with NewGround again on future projects.
DIRECTOR, EAGLE BLUFF ENVIRONMENTAL LEARNING CENTER
Nancy’s unbiased approach provides the integrity needed to find solutions that bring people together on a project or issue. With respect to her communication skill-set, she is masterful at developing the criteria and strategic planning elements that move people and their plans in the desired direction and timeframe.

Nancy not only developed sustainable marketing tools for our partnership to use, but also an amazing personal relationship that materialized in those products. It was apparent from the beginning that Nancy has a passion for people and their ability to succeed. She’s driven to understand you and your needs as well as the community you serve.
When I’ve worked with contractors in the past, they came and went and I never heard from them after receiving the product. Nancy has turned into more of a life coach who checks back with me to see how we are growing.
What Nancy taught us was so simple, yet applicable with every organization we work with. The tools she shared work. They bring in partners in both the public and private sectors, and unlike most products or tools you purchase, these evolve as you and your partnerships grow. Nancy’s ability to make a connection with her audience is unlike any I’ve ever seen.
BIOLOGIST AND FISHERS & FARMERS PARTNERSHIP COORDINATOR, U.S. FISH & WILDLIFE SERVICE
In my role as executive director of Mississippi Valley Conservancy, I was privileged to work with NewGround to more effectively market MVC’s land conservation work. Nancy North has been a great source of inspiration, ideas and encouragement for MVC. Not only does she provide excellence in design and communications, but she also brings a solid, substantive understanding of conservation issues.
Nancy helped us see the big picture, and distill and instill its most compelling essence into our marketing pieces, to award-winning effect. She goes above and beyond what is required to ensure success. I can’t think of a more wonderful and skilled marketing expert with whom to partner.

FORMER EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, MISSISSIPPI VALLEY CONSERVANCY
I got a copy of Mississippi Valley Conservancy’s 15th anniversary magazine and thought, “Wow! This is really something.” Then I looked in the Table of Contents and saw who put it together. It was NewGround. I thought, “That’s why it’s so great!”
