Ideas That Evoke Launches Public Affairs Division, Adding to Agency Offerings


Madison-Based Agency Expands To Offer Scalable Branding, Digital and Public Relations Services

MADISON, WI (September 25, 2019) –– Ideas That Evoke, a nationally recognized leader in branding, public relations and digital services, is launching a public affairs division to service clients in the political, nonprofit and advocacy sectors. Since the company’s inception in 2009, Ideas That Evoke has devoted substantial efforts to statewide nonprofits, advocacy groups and changemakers utilizing our time and expertise to move important issues forward.

The Ideas That Evoke team has over a decade of experience crafting campaigns that amplify messages and accelerate change across market segments. The launch of the public affairs division derives from the desire to continue to support local changemakers and drive results where earned media, digital and social media intersect.

“I started Ideas That Evoke in 2009 because I saw a gap in the marketplace, the formal launch of our public affairs division represents a void, close to home, where we can make a difference. I have no doubt that our Madison team can deliver world-class work for local, regional and state organizations,” said Kelly Ehlers, CEO & Founder of Ideas That Evoke.

Ideas That Evoke works with national and international clients and has been named among Inc 500 and Inc 5000 Fastest Growing Company in the US and Wisconsin four years running as well as one of the Top Entrepreneurial Companies in America by Entrepreneur Magazine, two year running. The firm’s founder, Kelly Ehlers, also serves on both Forbes and AdAge Councils where she is a contributor in thought leadership and best practices for marketers around the country.

“Having a deep understanding and experience in digital and public relations strategies that change the narrative, our team offers a local solution for organizations to partner with an award-winning company rooted in- and dedicated to- making a positive impact in Wisconsin,” said Ehlers.
