The Donovan Group

The Donovan Group LLC, founded in 2004, is a communications and community engagement firm that focuses exclusively on education. Over the years, its work has involved some of the most critical and urgent issues facing our schools, districts, and educational organizations. In all of our work, we emphasize engaging community members in the challenges and opportunities of their local public schools. Our clients range from large urban schools and districts to small, one-school rural districts inside and outside of Wisconsin. We also provide communications and consulting services to various state and national associations and organizations.

The services we offer span a wide range of areas, including work with districts in advance of a capital or operational referendum, developing and executing communications plans, writing news releases, and assisting in the organization of community events. We also provide graphic and website design and communications assistance on many different issues, including difficult subjects, such as Wisconsin school finance and changes in state- and federal-level educational policy.

Howick Associates

With more than 26 years of experience in the field, Drew focuses on designing and facilitating group discussions that enable the participants to solve a problem or advance an issue. He works with groups of all sizes to see that the conversation that needs to happen does happen, thereby releasing the potential of the group.

Drew also collaborates with clients to develop meaningful learning experiences for adult audiences. For example, Drew worked with a team of corporate executives to design a week-long conference for senior managers worldwide. By using a variety of learning experiences and creative meeting designs, HOWICK ASSOCIATES enabled the participants to truly understand the organization's new strategic direction. Participants were also equipped with tools and techniques for communicating this strategy to their respective organizations.
