The B2B Communications Consultancy Executives Trust

James F. O’Gara
Founder and Strategic Advisor

OnMessage has been helping CEOs, the C-suite and communications executives grow their businesses for more than 17 years. In fact, we pioneered the “strategic messaging” consulting space back in 2001.

Our team has deep and wide experience engaging at the highest level of the organization and breaking down highly complex business challenges. We specialize in translating strategies into meaningful stories that create positive, material connections with customers, employees and brands.

Our founder, James F. O’Gara, is a recognized thought leader in this space. He has unsurpassed expertise helping executive teams convert strategic communications into capital (customer relationship, employee engagement and brand loyalty) that fuels sustained business growth. Having worked with executive teams across hundreds of high-growth and Fortune 1000 companies, he has witnessed firsthand — what works, what doesn’t and how to maximize the return on every communications investment you make.

“OnMessage was instrumental in helping us crystallize a customer-centric message. A corporate story that is rooted in the voice of our customers and captures the true value that GAP delivers. The new messaging has become a rallying cry for our whole company to get behind. In addition, the internal education and external communication strategy they developed has enabled us to unify the story we deliver throughout the customer experience.”

Darryl Worsham, CMO & CRO at Growth Acceleration Partners (GAP)

“OnMessage has a proven process for aligning a company’s strengths with messaging that reflects what is most important to the customer. Their rigor and thoughtful approach helped us rally our employees to embrace a radically new message.”

Holly Tsourides, Chief Marketing Officer at Authentix
“I have had the pleasure in working with Jim and his team on two different occasions and both times they exceeded expectations. Thus, it is no surprise that I value the experience and insights Jim and his team bring to business strategy, customer experience, messaging and positioning discussions … especially amongst executives. He truly understands the importance of clarity in the corporate story and the role strategy plays in driving optimal business performance.”
Toby Purdy, EVP & CMO at LALA U.S.
“I have worked with Jim and he really knows how to engage with C-suite executives. He brings the perfect blend of experience, strategy and real-world execution to the table.”
Tom McKeown, COO, VP at Curo Compensation
“Jim brings discipline and process to highly complex executive discussions and decisions. He and his team are known for their ability to help executive teams focus and provide the structure required to bring clarity to any strategic planning process. It has been a privilege to bring him and his team on as consultants in two different industries with two different companies.”
Corrie Brock, Head of Branding and Communications at Hilti
“I have worked with, worked for and have hired Jim’s company during a 20-year professional relationship. He has a unique ability to understand the needs of his customers and combine strategic thinking with the tactics required to drive significant business results. He brings experienced points of view and guidance to every executive level conversation. Jim drives the highest degree of clarity around strategic business and marketing decisions – and he is not afraid to share his candid, real world advice with business leaders to move the business forward.”
Chad Riseling, SVP Global Sales at Romonet
“OnMessage helped us crystallize a story and strategy that connects with employees and customers. They understand the role internal and external communications play in the customer experience.”
Toby Purdy, CMO, LALA USA

“OnMessage gets it. They are experts at aligning go-to-market strategies and stories. They understand how to establish differentiation in the market. Their team has been invaluable over the years.”

Stacey Coreil Little, VP Corporate Marketing, AssistRX
