Your message. Our expertise. Together, we create communications that connect with the audience you need to reach.


We collaborate with you to craft communications that are
understood and appreciated by your target audience. We learn the
story you want to tell and deliver it in clear, compelling form.


Effective messaging is essential to every business.
At Fluent Partners, that’s what we do.


We work with startups, SMEs and industry leaders in a wide
range of businesses, from high tech to television. We’re also
well-versed in private equity and venture finance.


Businesses are better connected every day: to their customers, their clients and to other businesses. But these connections don’t perform unless the messages they convey are intelligent, compelling and clear.

At Fluent Partners, that’s what we do. We work with you to ensure that your messages reach your audience in the most effective way, and that they’re understood and appreciated by the people who see them.

Together, we have decades of experience in corporate communications. We’ve collaborated with leading firms around the world, including Samsung, Yahoo, Cisco, Red Hat, Symantec, VMware, Veeva Systems, Domo and Bill.com.

We also offer the knowledge gained in many years spent as journalists. Publications we’ve written for include Wired, the New York Times, U.S. News & World Report, Venture Capital Journal, Forbes, San Francisco magazine, San Francisco Chronicle, Business 2.0, Red Herring and the Industry Standard.

We’ll spend time with you, get the story you want to tell, and deliver it to your audience with clarity and passion.
