Kathleen R. Page, M.D.- President of John Hopkins Latino Alliance (JHLA)

Your guidance and facilitation of strategic planning workshops resulted in the successful direction of JHLA. The exercise helped us redefine our mission, vision, primary audiences, and focus on initial initiatives to achieve our objectives. In addition, it will help us create new and expanded opportunities to build a community that brings equity for Latinos.

You epitomize the finest in professionalism — brilliant, responsive, personable, and thoroughly attentive to our organization’s needs.

Emergent Element was a teaming partner for two years providing strategic advisory and consulting services to support a Zika virus communications campaign. Javier and the Emergent Element team brought creative approaches to reach primary audiences in Puerto Rico and offered culturally-relevant media strategies for outreach to Hispanics/Latinos in the continental U.S. Emergent Element provided high-quality results in a timely fashion; securing pro-bono traditional media and digital/social media placements. Javier and his team were professional and easy to work with, flexible in managing shifting timelines, and able to anticipate the next steps. Based on Emergent Element’s performance on the Zika campaign, I recommend this firm for similar communications campaigns.

Javier is one of those dynamic souls for whom you wonder what they have for breakfast every morning. Extremely well-connected with some smart business grace is a strong mark for Javier. As someone on the technical side of public relations, Javier is also one of the few who is both up to date on the new technologies but rational enough to know that despite all that is happening in this trade – nothing, absolutely nothing serves the industry than a man of character who can look you in the eye and tell you what needs to be done and how.
