& Strategic Communications: George Durazzo has extensive
experience advocating for groups, charities and associations
espousing a particular point of view. For example, he designed
an advocacy strategy for California Cancer Registry Systems
(CTR), which sought 100% restoration of its funding. In fact,
funding was increased!
Plans (Creating, Drafting & Editing): Durazzo started
developing winning business plans in the mid-'90s while in
Texas, for clients ranging from a multi-unit theme restaurant
venture to a romantic travel destination portal.
Naming: Durazzo started coming up with business names
as an amusing sideline, and soon realized he had a knack for
coming up with business names that work. He has assisted in
the naming of companies such as Silver Bullet Strategies,
Mentortek.com, Caffe Diem, and -- of course -- Warhorse Consulting.
In the future, he plans to move into the area of sports and
stadium naming rights.
Partnerships: Bringing the right people together to make
things happen is a true talent of George Durazzo, and it's
a source of pride and continuing accomplishment for him. His
huge network of contacts reaches outside the U.S. and is both
broad and diverse.
Durazzo has "suffered the slings and arrows in the hell
for leather world of political and nonprofit fundraising."
He has "earned [his] stripes and, in fact, a few deep
red welts from the experience"! His clients have ranged
from rich and famous incumbents to Samson-like challengers,
Presidential campaigners and the venerable March of Dimes
to a new foundation for at-risk inner city youth.
