WHO ARE WE
Specializing in highlighting infrastructure success stories and thought leadership for the Architecture/Engineering/Construction industry
Too often, professionals in the A/E/C industry don’t get the credit they deserve for the great work they do to improve the quality of life for their client communities. Let’s celebrate your great infrastructure and planning projects. Blaize Communications provides one-stop services that include writing, editing, media relations and photography. With my extensive experience in content creation for professional services firms, I understand how they work and know the importance of promoting industry leaders in the marketplace to enhance a company’s brand.
We connect people and ideas to make a difference.
“Leslie is a great communicator, writer, and photographer. Her organization and team leadership talents are exemplary, and well complimented by her warm personality and easy sense of humor. She’s now working with Mead & Hunt to provide website project writeup service for some of our key projects.”
“I worked with Leslie on a variety of projects at MSA Professional Services. We collaborated on the development of successful abstract proposals for key industry conferences, industry award submittals and public relations announcing the formation of Aerial Solutions, a new service line for the firm. With her help, we’ve published articles in the “Cityscape” magazine for the Iowa League of Cities. I appreciate her enthusiasm for the subject matter, whether it’s urban planning or Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUAS), typically known as drones. She was passionate about telling MSA’s story of how our teams work together to improve communities.”
“It was a pleasure for my integrated communications agency to work with Leslie on corporate external newsletters and calendars. We enjoyed collaborating with her on projects because she was open to ideas and met her deadlines.”
“I’ve really enjoyed working with Leslie on the creation of my mother’s memoir, “Otti Remembers: German WWII Teen Immigrates to America.” Leslie edited the narrative while keeping true to my mother’s voice. She brought Otti’s story to life with her selection of photos and creation of headlines and call-outs to emphasize key elements of the story. The project started out as a family memoir, but along the way, we realized that the book contains some historically significant details that will be of interest to World War II history buffs and scholars. Leslie organized our rough manuscript into a readable and engaging format. I appreciate Leslie’s enthusiasm and dedication to telling our family’s story.”
“Leslie is extremely dedicated and passionate for her work. I had the pleasure of working with Leslie at MSA, where she was responsible for various activities in the Marketing Department–from advertising to winning the company awards and developing press releases. She makes writing seem easy! Leslie has the ability to work with others as a team to take a technical subject and make it so most anyone can understand.”
“I’ve known and worked with Leslie on many public relations/writing projects for the League of Wisconsin Municipalities. She submits well-written articles for the “Municipality” magazine that inform our readers about key issues that impact them. Leslie is enthusiastic about our goals, such as encouraging women to serve their communities as leaders in a volunteer or professional capacity. She is always enthusiastic, friendly and supportive of the League”

The challenge, of course, is preparing successful award submittals for architecture, engineering, planning and construction firms. Eight-Step Process Following this eight-step process will help [...]
If you’re taking a hike, a nearby crack of thunder gets your attention, especially if it’s followed by a lightning bolt or two. Rolling thunder, I’ve discovered, can be ignored. It’s more like background music that can be interesting, but not too threatening, even if you spot distant lightning. I experienced this phenomenon while seeking a soaring osprey with my husband. We knew where it was nesting on a high perch and hoped to take photos of this magnificent [...]
