TRADITIONAL, WITH A TWIST

We’re classically trained, but progressively practiced. We’re a new generation of political and community mobilization experts, bridging the gap between traditional and digital practices. We rely on good, old-fashioned conversation and connections while leveraging the power of social media.

What You See is What You Get, and so Much More.

Turn Corps was started by Bryan Blakely and Sara O’Keefe, who have over 30 years of combined public affairs/community relations, political and communications experience. They are professionals who keep their feet grounded, and always have their hearts and hands in their work. As Colorado natives, and coming from families with deep political and public service backgrounds, they have contacts throughout the state, and regionally, as well as access to skilled and trusted freelancers and subcontractors to help finish a big job efficiently.
