Guest Speaker Opportunity

We are experts in what we do. And we love to share what we know. Plank founder Warren Wilansky and Communications & Marketing Director Tarah Schwartz can speak about numerous topics and issues that educate and inspire.

How we do it

There are a lot of agencies that do what we do. We think we do it a little differently.

We approach each project with a collaborative spirit, and work in an open and honest way. We value and nurture long relationships based on trust, quality of work, and personal service.

Our projects begin by establishing clear goals and frameworks for working together as partners. Our Hack Day kickoff process gets deeper than a deep dive, and galvanizes the sense of unity between our team and yours. It helps us internalize the goals of the project and ensure that we are always representing your interests.

Our process follows agile principles while avoiding its pitfalls. We treat our clients as team members, and provide project transparency by inviting them to work directly in our internal tools. Our dedicated, in-house team works in close collaboration to fit all the pieces together into one seamless product.

Need funding? We can help you.

We love working on projects that operate outside of a profit-driven motive. And we understand that those projects often need funding support. That’s why we are happy to collaborate with you on crafting funding applications to secure the budget you need to get the job done well. Get in touch to discuss your project.
