Our Focus Areas
We’re proud of our history of working with a broad base of clients to engage public affairs efforts on a variety of issues. Over time, our work has led us to specialize in four focus areas that can be summarized with one word: INNOVATION.
Our people love innovative products, services and ideas. We’re passionate about advancing disruptive technologies that improve quality of life, and we spend a lot of time talking to decisionmakers about how they can make “the next big thing” work for them. New innovations often create challenges for regulators, residents and existing services. Madaffer Enterprises prides itself on ensuring its clients are part of the solution.
The pace of technological innovation far outstrips the government’s ability to effectively adapt and accommodate the disruptive nature of new businesses, apps and paradigms.Entrepreneurs need help to ensure consumers and governments are prepared to adapt to new advances in connectivity. We’re experienced communicators when it comes to the Internet of Things, autonomous and unmanned vehicles, the sharing economy, app-based services and environmental sustainability.
The exploding interest from local governments in becoming “Smart Cities” has driven an intense interest in how municipalities can use the latest technologies and innovations to provide a better quality of life to residents. Officials are inundated with options, but are often left alone to figure out how to devise a plan that works for their specific jurisdiction. Madaffer Enterprises works with local leaders directly to deliver a customized, comprehensive action plan that provides a roadmap for municipalities.
Governments across the nation are struggling to ensure regulations keep pace with the latest technological innovations and paradigm shifts in energy generation. Alternative fuelsfuels, sustainable energy sources, distributed generation and advancements in natural gas have fundamentally shifted where the country gets its energy from, what form it takes and how it is used.
A quality education is the foundation of a strong society. Yet, changing the status quo often comes with a host of problems from those unfamiliar with new ways of teaching, learning and doing. The demands of the modern workforce are vastly different than even two decades ago, and schools that offer training in practical job skills are at a premium.
Madaffer Enterprises provides clients with solutions to complex communications problems. Our comprehensive capabilities ensure that each project benefits from deep, strategic planning matched by impeccable execution. Clients rely on our insight and experience to achieve their desired outcomes – and we always play to win.
