[one_third][testimonial by=”Bob Gallagher” from=”President & CEO, Carlisle & Gallagher Consulting Group (CG) “]“The building of our brand, from our voice, attributes, promise, and ultimately our positioning platform, has created this excellent framework for us to talk about our company. It’s reflected in the website and our online employee communications channel.
We see it, read it, and feel the pulse and intention of our firm. Kido stayed true to their plan, resisted our pressure to compromise the process, and converted the non-believers (me).”[/testimonial]

[one_third][testimonial by=”Russell J. Campanello” from=” Senior Vice President of Human Resources Keane, Inc.”]”For a two year period at Keane, we navigated extraordinarily difficult communication events with minimal impact to our clients, shareholders, and employees. Veronica Kido’s leadership and skill during these moments was unparalleled. When events were at their most unpredictable, Veronica was always prepared with the counsel and guidance we needed. She developed the strategy and delivered the messages that provided each constituency with the right information at the right time. She coached board members and management in dealing with the press, and was available nearly 24 hours when we needed it. We couldn’t have had a better communications leader than Veronica Kido. ” [/testimonial]

[one_third][testimonial by=”Daniel Christianson” from=”Senior Visual Designer, Keane, Inc., Creative Director, Dan Christianson Design”]“I had the pleasure of working with Veronica while I was a contracted visual designer during her employment with TowerGroup. A chance freelance assignment at Keane resulted in an open dialogue and in a short time, I found myself working directly with her within Keane’s Marketing department. Choosing to work for Keane and close down my own business was a weighty decision unto itself but high on the list of reasons to do this was an opportunity to work with this bright, articulate, and engaging individual whom I feel possesses an amazing work ethic and is fluent and well-versed in her field of marketing communications and public relations. Her passion for her work is self-evident. During my nearly two years at Keane, Veronica has demonstrated an effective leadership style, balancing a sense of authority with compassion and a strong dedication to accomplishing the many tasks at hand.
She is masterful in her ability to understand the nature of a given issue by asking the right questions and in turn, offers several possible solutions. She is at ease with assigning her staff for a particular project and displays faith in their contributions by engaging them in the process and making them part of the team effort to complete it. In doing so, she reinforces their sense of participation, accomplishment and most importantly, team-effort. She shines brilliantly when conducting staff and executive meetings or day-long brand strategy workshops by being prepared, pacing the meetings accordingly, and accomplishing her meeting and workshop objectives effectively. Veronica’s sense of organization, her drive, her innately articulate and engaging nature, and her respect for her colleagues, are proven elements of a strong, competent, and fair team leader.” [/testimonial][/one_third]
[testimonial by=”Elizabeth Christopher” from=”Marketing Writer, Keane, Inc.”]”Veronica knows marketing and she knows how to manage people to get the desired business results. At TowerGroup, she built the marketing organization from the ground up, developing the marketing strategy and the processes to support the business needs. She honed the PR initiatives around the strategy, setting up a speakers bureau and expanding the capabilities of our events program. She was able to pull from her strong network of professionals to enable our two-person team to accomplish the work of a much larger organization. When I came to work for her again at Keane, her challenges were different. The marketing organization she ran was staffed with ten professionals including designers, writers, and a web manager.
But demands on our time were equally great, and a tumult of organizational changes required we shift focus time and again over the course of a year. Veronica is cool under pressure and is able to prioritize projects to make sure her team stays focused on the company’s business strategy. She quickly identifies people’s talents and uses them appropriately, while gently challenging her group to push beyond their comfort level. In short, Veronica is a true professional and a joy to work with.”
