“Daria has the special ability to take seemingly disparate sets of data and research and, magically, turn them into a coherent strategy. Her clear-eyed approach to complex communications situations delivers highly executable results. Her writing is superb, and I value her sharp, analytical mind as a partner when wrestling with challenging client needs. She is among the best thinkers with whom I have worked.”
Sheila Strand Founder, Strand Communication Strategies

“I hired Daria to assist us with content and to help develop a marketing piece. Daria took the time to thoroughly understand our company–where it was almost 7 years ago and the direction we were headed in. This led to messaging that was on target, and reflected both our values and brand personality.”
Melissa Marcello, Pursuant Research

“Daria knows the importance of telling a good story. As a speaker, she’s extremely engaging and would be a good addition to any conference seeking to educate businesspeople on how communications can shape customers’ perceptions and buying decisions.”
John Taylor, Sprint Nextel

“I had the pleasure of hearing Daria speak at a conference in Atlanta. She delivered a thorough and informative presentation on building strategic partnerships. The information was tailored to the audience and included relevant examples and actionable tips. Her deep knowledge of business was evident and she was able to provide expert guidance and answer specific audience issues. More important, Daria connected with the audience and engaged us from the start with her approachable style and her ability to draw us into the conversation.”
Karen Swim, Words for Hire

“I worked with Daria when I was the managing director for the NAM Center for Workforce Success and we were producing publications for a business audience about the critical nature of targeted workforce development. Daria understands business models and workforce development issues, was entirely comfortable (and expert at) reaching out to and working with heads of employer associations, and did a great job of taking research and polling data and pulling it into simple English for broader dissemination.”
Stacey Wagner, JarrettWagner Group, LLC

“I worked with Daria in 2006-2008 when I was the communications director for the Reston Association and she was hired to assist as a strategic advisor on a very difficult referendum that we were conducting. Steigman Communications was the right solution for Reston Association. We were provided invaluable strategic support with advice and counsel that was always sound, relevant, and effective.

Steigman Communications also developed an overall communications plan for RA. I would work with Daria and Steigman Communications again and highly recommend her as a results-oriented strategist with an excellent track record.”
