Dawn Richerson

Hi! I’m Dawn Richerson, founder and CEO of Creative Revolutions.

I’ve been partnering with visionary leaders and nonprofit organizations for more than two decades. I specialize in strategic communication that helps you bring your vision to life and expand your reach and impact.

I enjoy using my unique gifts and skills to provide nonprofit consulting services that support organizations on the path to thriving and flourishing connections with the communities they serve.

I bring excellent writing and content development skills together with public relations expertise and a knack for a highly innovative, creative approach to provide communications support for your visionary business or organization.

Unlike many consultants, I am interested in a holistic approach to marketing and communication. I begin with the understanding that your visionary organization is a dynamic and sustainable system, designed to thrive with bold, radiant attraction and natural differentiation (your essential BRAND) and clear communication.

Working directly with the executive director, CEO, or senior member of your leadership team, I support visionary organizations that are ready to lay the groundwork for solid, strategic communication through clear messaging and compelling content.

Let’s get started!

Client Experience Working with Dawn

Brand Messaging + Collateral Development

I collaborated with Dawn on a communications project to focus a corporate brand for Hi-Hope Service Center that would support their newly established development plan. Dawn has a strong understanding of how important it is for non-profit organizations to establish a strong brand and clearly communicate their mission, visions and programs.

She put together a strategy to meet this objective and implemented the plan in a way that engaged staff, families and clients and most importantly resulted in a well-written brochure and key messages that are being carried over in to all written communication vehicles.

Dawn continues to be a resource for me when I need advice on public relations and communication strategies! Her interpersonal, writing and communications strategy skills are an asset to any organization. I recommend her without reservation. ~ Yvonne Whitaker

Content / Product Development + Communications Strategy

Before I met Dawn, I had a problem of encapsulating ways of presenting my business to an audience that may or may not see the value of what I was presenting. Dawn developed a colorful, one-page communications tool to highlight what we desired to assist customers with. To do this, she asked me not just what I brought to the table (my gifts) but forced me to answer the hard question (what do my customers need?).

Dawn simplified our message by focusing us on an audience-oriented branding, creating an atmosphere with the sole goal of moving prospects to customers through change-oriented communication. We’ve been able to channel our communications and begin with the end in mind, anticipating our prospect’s questions and identifying the action steps that will help the prospect fulfill desired outcomes.

Dawn is truly an innovator in the marketplace of ideas. She turns ideas into communications that connect action to the cause. As a result of Dawn’s marketing support, I’ve been able to sell my products exponentially (20 times my initial sales!) in more diversified markets, with greater effectiveness than ever before. ~ Curtis Williams
