WHAT JTD DOES
Consultants are often all hat and no cattle. They overcharge their clients, they don't personally prioritize projects, and they neglect innovative technology and adaptive tactics. JTD Strategies is different. JTD Strategies works at the intersection of politics, public affairs, and marketing to provide general consulting, targeted deliverables, and creative communication strategies for political and corporate clients. JTD is a comprehensive consulting firm that doesn't simply provide cookie-cutter answers to varying client challenges in an ever changing world.
Whether it is JTD's experience with election-day operations, its responsive crisis management, its in-house copy and speech writing capabilities, its partnered best-in-industry database, its award-winning automated/IVR phone technology, its largely staffed and experienced partnered live call centers, or its army of peer-to-peer texters, JTD Strategies produces sapient solutions through premium services and "deliverables" by integrating battle-tested strategy and tactics with the highest quality vendors and specialists throughout the nation.
JTD partners with programmers, psychologists, and politicos to deliver intel and provide strategy, so your campaign, cause, or company can achieve its goals.
JTD is always accessible, is always forward-thinking, and is always driven when working for you and your cause.

Election Operations and Observation
JTD Strategies knows every vote counts. Election Day Operations (EDO) and Observation can make the difference on whether your votes are counted, laws are followed, and proactive steps are taken to ensure election integrity. JTD Strategies has executed successful Election Day Operations across the US and abroad. When conducting independent observation instead of EDO, JTD respects guidelines as outlined in the Declaration of Principles for International Election Observation along with contributing to and coordinating observation missions in accordance to methodological and structural frameworks followed by the Organization for Security and Co-Operation in Europe. In addition to frontline operations, JTD also advises election administrators and Parties on voting systems and protocols to safeguard the integrity of elections along with identifying vulnerabilities including cyber threats.

I so enjoyed Tex's talk and learned more about the inside world of political campaigns from it than I have from our previous sessions combined. In short, Tex was terrific: insightful, practical, and engaging.

Joseph Tex Dozier is an excellent speaker. He engages audiences with humor and energy. My classes loved hearing about his experiences as a political consultant in American and international elections and learned a great deal about what it means to be a campaign professional. Tex's considerable knowledge of political science and the business of politics makes for a memorable and enlightening presentation.
