About Us

IN THE PUBLIC EYE COMMUNICATIONS is devoted to illuminating the voices of international and domestic change. Our clients are working to improve the lives of people around the world through public policy, the arts, and various forms of media. We design message driven events, media relations trainings, effective websites and video production to help our clients build relationships with their most important stakeholders. We have constructed Presidential Inaugural Galas, annual conferences, private dinners and Embassy parties. Our clients have appeared on every major television and radio network. We negotiated for MSNBC to broadcast an entire afternoon of live programming from our client’s urban farm site and have had great success getting clients invited to deliver TED Talks.
