Wendy Mitchell Consulting
Connecting businesses with government and public policy makers
With 20 years’ experience in the public and private sector, we translate how government operates to companies that are trying to achieve specific business goals.
Public policy decisions have statewide impact, but few firms understand the dynamics of Sacramento as it relates to the on-the-ground political reality of Los Angeles and Southern California.
If you’re looking for solutions in this complicated landscape, we have the answers.
I look at the entire political playing field and determine the best avenue to take. It could be state legislation, a regulatory fix, a local ordinance, an initiative, or an education of stakeholders. My firm looks at more than a single approach because that’s our expertise -- you can expect a thoughtful and precise path to solving your problem.
Different aspects of public policy come up all the time and there aren’t necessarily policy experts in that field. I will come in and analyze the situation from the perspective of an expert, figure out the end goal and achieve those objectives, regardless of the policy areas.
With my years of experience and personal relationships and connections with top decision makers, I will make sure your policy or concern gets before the right people, at the right time, in the right venue for the most effective outcome.
Knowing where different stakeholder groups will line up is key to the success of any project, policy or desired outcome. I will work with all the key groups and can either determine what positions they’ll take in advance or have an off-the-record conversation to determine how their organization will react to a certain policy or project.
Wendy is proud to serve on the Board of Directors for these groups:
