ABOUT US

How Real Human-to-Human Communicating Works

By genuinely empathizing with drug "wearing off" syndrome. Especially with people who can barely articulate. We created a program where drawings were used to tell their stories, share their experiences.

Our understanding on this fully human level enabled the Company to give people living with Parkinson's a vital, desired voice for their feelings.

In-depth research led us to do a simple truth – when a person is diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer, they don't feel they have a voice to advocate for themselves. So we launched the first streaming radio station – WMBC Radio – dedicated to sharing stories and resources to help people living with mBC find their voice.

Opening a large, grateful ray of needed openness to hopefulness for many. Integrating all the human intangibles of mind and heart – ones no one can ever model or measure – led to a remarkably positive outcome.

This household name company wanted to put personality behind its executives, so we didn't look at what their customers wanted to hear, but what they wanted to feel. That this multinational corporation cared about them and the problems they faced every day.

We created a LinkedIn series from executives that showed the c-suite "got-it." Achieving honest connections, trust, and understanding from c-suite to customer allowed for breakthrough leadership.

This is communications goodfused.

Here's a litmus test of how human your communications really are.

See how you're relating to people's actual psyches, emotions, complexities. Or leaning instead into their virtual (and artificial) personas, roles, abstract profiles.

Are your messages deeply engaging people, as people? Are they distinct and cutting through today's smog of unreality?

Are they relevant? Do the people you're seeking to engage care about what you're saying? Are you making a real difference in their lives? If we put a competitor's name and tagline on your marketing, would anyone notice?

Are you in a feeling loop with your audiences?

How well does your agency personally & actively understand you?

Getting Recognized

Peers, clients, the industry and others have been greatly and consistently recognizing our good people, good work and ever-evolving way of thinking.

Meet our Goodfusers

Michael MyersExecutive Vice President

At a very young age, I learned the power of written, spoken and unspoken communications. The unspoken came from a simple, compassionate gesture my father made, risking his business to do the right thing. That lesson stuck.

What I'm up to here

My journey with Goodfuse began in 2018 as a client. Now, as a member of the Goodfuse leadership team, I have the privilege of bringing to my colleagues and our clients more than two decades of experience serving multiple industries as a boutique agency founder, client-side senior executive, and independent consultant. My goal at Goodfuse, helping build on a foundation of humanity-infused communications excellence, is driven by years of personal and professional experience with healthcare’s insensitivities to patients and inherent inequities in the treatment of all too many communities. And I get to work with the best, brightest and most compassionate colleagues in the industry!
