“My firm has had the pleasure of working with Josie and Curmudgeon Group on several prominent projects in Chicago over the past 4 years.  Her ingenuity and efficiency in executing production timelines is without peer [...] With more than 20 years of Public Relations practice, I seldom come across an individual who possesses the range of skills and innate creativity, ambition, leadership, and communication skills that Josie does.  She is truly exceptional in her field.”

“Josie Davis has shared her time and talent with the World Wildlife Fund for the past three years [...] With a handful of other powerful partnerships, Josie was able to provide a stellar experience for Chicagoans to journey through the rainforest without leaving the city.  Josie is a self-starter and eminently adaptable.  She understands how to take the necessary steps, sometimes over years, to execute large-scale productions.”

Grant Gilbert, Senior Director, Central Region, WWF


“With the recent execution of Fantasmagorie, Josie led her team by focusing on the big picture while manipulating the moving parts of a highly complex, multi-media campaign.  From developing creative content to on-site logistics and marketing strategy, Josie spearheaded one of Chicago’s most educational and inventive impact campaigns from start to finish.”
