Who We Are
We are problem solvers and partners.
Founded by siblings Dan and Eileen O'Donnell in 1996, Odonnell Company is a strategic consulting and marketing agency. Several years later, Odonnell made the decision to focus exclusively on partnering with organizations that work to save and improve people's lives. Today, as a social sector consultancy, Odonnell works alongside government agencies and nonprofits to help solve some of the most challenging issues facing the world.
Human Beings and Decision Making
At its core Odonnell's work is about human beings and their potential for change. We all have our own identity, experience, and dreams, but we also have common ground in shared needs. The Odonnell approach considers what it is to be human: our challenges, our needs, our behaviors, and our decisions. The science of our minds is fascinating stuff—how we make millions of decisions each day and the micro-actions that frame our choices and define our path in life.
Create change for the better by working with government agencies and nonprofits to help solve some of the major challenges facing the world.
Odonnell believes in empowering people by learning about them, believing in them, connecting with them, and supporting them with important information and simple actions that are relevant to their context, goals, and challenges.
A Team of Changemakers
Each individual on the Odonnell team is fully dedicated to creating positive change. Our team of committed professionals believe in the work and develop strategies and campaigns that build relationships, create a sense of belonging, and compel action—creating a wave of change driven by activating our highly engaged audiences.
The bottom line? Our campaigns deliver long-lasting, sustainable change, and real results.
Imagination: It’s Not Just in Your Head
New scientific findings show imagination is a neurological reality that can impact our wellbeing. Can this help the one in three Americans who deal with anxiety and phobias?
Decision Making Isn’t As Logical As We May Think
Emotions and context are major factors in decision making.
