When 26 Letters needs a larger team we call on our Superhero friends to bring their glitter. Our Associates hold high degrees, decades of experience, and one even has top-secret clearance. (Sorry, we can’t tell you which one lest we blow her cover).

Cyndi Coon
Laboratory5, Inc.
What does producing an experience mean? It means we’ll start by sitting down and listening to your story to hear what you are up to. We’ll ask about the incredible ideas you have and the things you’re working on that you want other people to understand. We are ideas people over here at Laboratory5 so we’ll start bouncing in our seats excitedly, just listening to you. When we work together we’ll advise you and your team on a crazy over the top experience that involves creativity, play and wow. And we’ll have fun doing it!

Sharon Tewksbury-Bloom
Do Good, Be Good
The public sector is full of great people seeking meaningful work and a chance to make a difference. But a few years into the job employees don’t feel appreciated, they lack trust in leadership, and they begin to disengage. I can help. I help you to design training or a facilitated staff meeting to work on interpersonal communication within your organization. My programs help employees build trust and share knowledge.
