Introduction: Professional development speakers are often canned, cheesy regurgitations of knowledge you could better get from a book. I offer cogent, entertaining and transformative interactive experiences that build competencies in communications, collaboration and innovation for small teams, executive leadership groups and individuals. In a pinch for a speaker today? I’m your pinch hitter. Need to plan several sessions in Central Texas, we will work together to build a bespoke curriculum for your group. Want Emergenetics training, I’m a certified associate. Her friendly face and casual demeanor about all things business are merely a decoy - there is no one else you want on your side for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity or defending you in a crisis. Stafford Wood is a deadly combination of strategic brains, mystical intuition, humor and corporate marketing intelligence. As the Founder and President of Covalent Logic for the past fifteen years, Stafford leads a team of thirty corporate communications experts in internal communications, graphic design, web development and public relations. Stafford is an Emergenetics Associate leading professional development, team building and organizational transitions through mergers and acquisitions all over the country. As an Accredited Senior Practitioner of Public Relations, she's received two lifetime achievement awards from the American Advertising Federation and the Public Relations Association of Louisiana and has been inducted into the Southern Public Relations Federation Hall of Fame.

Stafford is my first (and often only) pick for a high-value partner in meeting my clients’ PR and business strategy needs as well as my own. With Stafford you get immediate access to her decades of field experience, capable staff of expert doers and thinkers, as well as up-to-date knowledge that adds invaluable strategic advantage to my most important projects. Highly recommend.

Stafford was a keynote speaker during a one day, statewide conference for the Public Relations Association of Louisiana. As always, Stafford delivered a fully-formed, thought-provoking and useful presentation. The topic centered on the different ways you can frame and tell a story. (For instance, man vs. nature, man vs. technology, man vs. man.) For a room full of PR/MKG professionals who must chose to tell stories in a new way, every day - or decide on the BEST way to tell their stories - this was welcome inspiration for the tasks we left sitting on our desks that morning! I would recommend Stafford anytime you're looking for an intelligent, inspirational speaker. She and her team and easy to work with and are always a delight.

Stafford has worked with our team when it created and launched its own website in 2003. She helped create one of the most iconic branding slogans and logos in the Baton Rouge region and in the parks and recreation industry--to the point that it was copied by the National Recreation and Park Association. We are proud to work with Covalent Logic and recently launched a reimagination of our website which has increased users by 59%, sessions by 45% and pageviews by 56%. Her team is quick to respond, creative, professional and great problem solvers, helping their clients think through issues large and small.
