Areas of Expertise

Water Policy Development & Implementation
 
RedAnt principals have been providing leadership on local, statewide and national water policy issues for over a decade. As state and local leaders and water managers struggle to deal with the effects of both record drought and record flooding, sound planning and management of local and regional water resources is becoming more and more necessary. There is also increasing competition among the different regions for very limited financial resources and technical expertise to ensure that each region has the quantity and quality of water essential to meet its needs for the coming decades.
 
Our principals have extensive experience in the complex arena of water resources policy development and implementation. We have been actively involved in the drafting and enactment of several Water Resources Development Acts and other federal water policy legislation. We have also been involved in the enactment of a number of key pieces of water policy legislation in the Oklahoma Legislature and the resulting promulgation of rules by the Oklahoma Water Resources Board, Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality and other state agencies with oversight of water policy implementation and enforcement.
Regional Geopolitical Economic Analysis

 

RedAnt has developed unique expertise in working with regional economic development organizations, tribal nations and major corporations to develop methodologies and tools to analyze the political and business climate in a defined geographic region. This process includes assessment of variables such as local and regional economic data, local and regional political climate and current issues, education and workforce statistics, demographic trends, and many others. These tools inform the strategic decision-making process by assessing the viability of business expansion, stakeholder engagement, and a wide variety of other applications within a particular region.

Economic and Workforce Development 

 

RedAnt has spent many years building strong relationships within the economic and workforce development community. We are able to leverage this network of leaders to build partnerships across the public, private and non-profit sectors in order to strengthen the link between a strong workforce and a thriving local, state and national economy. 

We work with businesses, grassroots organizations and government entities to break down the barriers that often exist between these sectors and facilitate collaboration among them. 

Strategic Intelligence & Planning

 

Timely and accurate information is crucial to any successful government and public relations strategy. We serve as our clients’ “eyes and ears” in the halls of government, as well as other organizations in the public policy arena. We maintain constant communication with key decision-makers in order to bring clients the most up-to-date information on current legislative, budget and regulatory issues affecting their objectives. 

 

A successful strategy must begin with a clear understanding of a client’s mission and objectives and any specific problems they may be facing. At the outset, we spend time getting to know your strengths and weaknesses, projects and programs that are currently under development, and those you wish to further develop. We then work with you to map out the necessary steps that need to be taken in order to achieve your objectives.

 

This process allows us to assist you in identifying the government and industry partners who appear most likely to share in your mission and who represent the most promising opportunities for growing your base and advancing your objectives. We are always available to attend meetings and events in order to advocate on your behalf and spread your message to the stakeholders and decision-makers who need to hear it.

Organizational  Management Consulting

 

RedAnt has a proven track record of success in working to build and grow corporations, non-profit associations and stakeholder groups. This includes membership development and retention, fundraising, grassroots engagement, coordination of continuing education opportunities, and meeting and event logistics, among others.

Having been involved with a number of non-profit organizations and professional trade associations as either members of the governing boards or as consultants, our principals are keenly aware of the managerial challenges facing an organization that is governed and managed by a volunteer board of directors. We recognize the importance of making sure the daily operations of such an organization run smoothly and have developed an effective model for managing volunteer-driven organizations such as these. 

Stakeholder Engagement

 

Before your objectives can be successfully achieved, you must continue to build and maintain a strong grassroots coalition of support in your particular area of public policy. We will take our proven track record of success in building these coalitions and put them to work on your behalf as we communicate the benefits of your programs and objectives to other stakeholders. These partners may include entities across a broad spectrum of the public, private, and non-profit sectors. These partners will then play a key role in the steps that must be taken in order to achieve your objectives.

Digital Marketing & Social Media Engagement  

 

Digital marketing and social media have emerged as critical tools for executing a successful government and public relations, issue campaign and stakeholder engagement strategy. Drawing upon our strategic partnerships in the print and digital media industry, we will work with you to develop and implement a strategy to achieve your priorities.

 

This strategy may include such tools as website design, document creation and publication, development of presentations for delivery to targeted events and audiences, and utilization of social media outlets such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and others. All of these tools will serve to reach your target audience and advance your objectives toward successful implementation.
