"First, when Larissa and I set out to create a marketing advisory board in support of our company's anti-racism commitment we were looking for great marketers, people and mentors for us and our team - we found that and more with you. The confidence, trust and ability for us as leaders building and supporting our team was imperative. I’m the first to say, I have a lot to learn and I’m humbled to have people like you to do so from. I extracted three primary areas that I thought had a direct impact on me, our marketing and team."
-Annie Vranizan, Director of Global Marketing
"Working with Martha was a welcome and needed voice of strategic marketing experience and organizational leadership, but with the kind of modern-day and cultural relevance that many brands and organizations seek, want or need. Having been involved with several lifestyle and brands that were founded on purpose and passion and find themselves looking for ways to thrive through differentiation in a crowded market place where individual values and a need for “goodness” is more paramount than ever, it can be difficult for many marketing leaders to do their work."
-Atsuko Tamura, President
"Our design studio was approaching the end of our second year, and we wanted to think about how we could expand our clientele while staying true to our values. We knew we needed to better our marketing strategy, and the ‘Thought Partnership’ with I AM COLLECTIVE was a great place to start.
Martha sat down with us to see where we were as a studio and asked us about our brand, goals, and values. Because she was someone outside of our team and the expert she is, she was able to point out things we wouldn’t have thought of otherwise. At the end, she provided a very digestible plan of attack for our marketing and helpful references.
Overall, Martha was a joy to work with. It didn’t feel like we were just talking to a marketing consultant but an empathetic friend who challenged us to think and dig deeper about who we wanted to be as a studio. She created and facilitated a space for us that left us empowered and incredibly excited to take on the next steps for our marketing. We look forward to the opportunity to work with her again!"

"Martha is reliable, kind, and thoughtful. She was an invaluable part of our efforts to promote the launch of our new digital storytelling platform. She helped me to develop a robust 3-month plan that took into account my limited resources and capacity, drawing on her deep expertise in marketing strategy. She, then, guided me through the process of onboarding and activating a community of supporters and potential collaborators. What I appreciated most was that Martha put me in contact with several amazing humans who are mission-aligned and will be future collaborators and what I enjoyed most was the care she took in educating me on what holistic and community-centered marketing looks like."
