Hello!


My name is Neil Chudgar.

I help people talk about the big ideas.

SCROLL DOWN

Hello!


My name is Neil Chudgar.

I help people talk about the big ideas.

BIG IDEAS ARE HARD TO TALK ABOUT.

Some of the most important ideas are also the hardest to talk about. Important ideas are often

  • technically complicated,

  • politically controversial, or

  • emotionally difficult.

My work helps people communicate about their biggest ideas — clearly, powerfully, and with compassion.

Health care and health policy are particular areas of professional focus, and I enjoy working with technical experts, faith-forward leaders, and organizations in times of change. My work has been helpful to clients in all kinds of fields, from local nonprofits to global conglomerates.

Clients trust me to help them figure out what to say about their big ideas and — just as important — why their big ideas matter.


“Neil is an exceptional talent. He is off the charts in his ability to listen and connect broader concepts and communication opportunities. He has a strategic sense and has helped us to modernize how we think about today’s problems.”James D. Schowalter, President, Minnesota Council of Health Plans

I don’t know anyone as talented at listening to another person’s vision, finding just the right language to convey complex ideas in a straightforward way, and using compelling design to advance and strengthen arguments.” Chris Wells, Associate Director of the Jan Serie Center for Scholarship and Teaching, Macalester College

CONTENT


CONTENT


This is what I do: I listen to people who have big ideas. Then I find language to give them wings. High-level content strategy, “thought leadership,” corporate communications, speechwriting, editing, ad copy — I help my clients communicate the ideas that matter most to them.

Lately I’ve helped with content in places like these:

My clients are experts. As a strategist, I help them understand and communicate how their expertise will make the future better.

Here are some of the organizations I’ve helped with strategy:

☤ Health Care

We’re in the midst of a sweeping change in American health care. Everything is up for debate: how we get the care we need, how we pay for it, and even what it means to be well. 

My work helps health-care organizations start new conversations about human wellbeing.

I help clients in health care answer questions like these: 

  • How can health insurers join to serve the common good at a time of intense competition?

  • How can a leading health technology company raise expectations for clinical documentation?

  • How can a industry trade organization raise awareness about the human significance of health policy?

✇ Technology

It takes rare gifts to bring new technologies into the world — intense focus, unexpected insight, deep expertise. Those same talents can make it hard for innovators to communicate in ways others humans understand. 

I help innovators explain the human value of their ideas.

I help clients in technology answer questions like these: 

𝌡 CHANGE

The only thing harder than managing change is talking about change — especially when people are scared, angry or just confused about what’s next. 

When organizations are changing, I can help them stay true to what matters.

I help clients in the midst of change answer questions like these: 

  • How can a complex global manufacturing organization overcome years of internal distrust to work as a team?

  • How can lobbyists transform their relationship with policymakers to focus on shared values?

  • How can a visionary consulting firm reinvent its message to connect with like-minded clients?
