Killen & Associates

“Given a choice between a cannon and a Thunderbolt,

I will always choose the latter.”  Napoleon 

This is a marketing thunderbolt that enables the marketing and other corporate  executives of an energy company to leverage their accomplishments, to further assure the success of the company’s Transition Strategy. Michael Killen and his team will significantly help our client attain the benefits of its Transition Strategy.

The Thunderbolts

1. Painting that Interprets the Client’s Transition Strategy

The art enables employees and investors to see the strategy creating a worldwide news event.

Michael will create a 10ft x 20ft semi-abstract interpretation of the client’s transition strategy. It will  attract decision makers who will pause for a few minutes, to decode the message. And, that process will help viewers retain the message longer than most other branding approaches.

Only one company will receive this benefit this year.

We will provide our client with a photo of the painting and a license to use the photo for all its branding strategies, including exhibitions, billboards, and VIP gifts.

Michael needs four months to make this thunderbolt. But we can help you now.

2. Enrich the Company’s Sustainability, Resilient and Climate Action Now Leadership Brand, and Increase Appeal to Spanish Speaking People Worldwide

Michael will now issue a license that will enable one energy company to use the photo of each of the  three following paintings for all of their branding opportunities.

Sustainability (5′ x 24′)

Resilience (5′ x 24′)

Don Quixote Demonstrates Climate Action Leadership (6′ x 20′)

3. TV/Internet Discussions with Client’s Spokespersons, Customers, Partners and Contacts

Johnathan Kleid, host of the ‘The Killen Report,” a TV/Internet show conducts the half hour discussions that enable the client to share their message with our TV and Internet audience. We provide client copies of the discussions for their own use.

The client can select the topics for discussions. Here is a discussion with Jonathan and Ripudaman Malhotra, head of energy markets and technology. 

Jonathan Interviews Rapu Malahoptra on Climate Energy Issues

We have produced interviews with Lynn Orr, Undersecretary of the U.S Department of Energy, Burt Richter, Director of SLAC, a U.S Department of energy laboratory, and Chris Field, IPCC Project Manager. And, we have produced interviews on climate change, carbon drawdown, energy efficiency, nuclear energy and many other topics.
