Reflections On: Our Work

At Bell­mont Part­ners, we work to uphold our core val­ues – col­lab­o­ra­tion, con­nec­tion, invest­ment, flex­i­bil­i­ty and trans­paren­cy – and also sup­port clients’ val­ues as we build part­ner­ships togeth­er to share mean­ing­ful sto­ries and help orga­ni­za­tions reach their goals. Our work spans a wide range of com­mu­ni­ca­tions ser­vices. From con­tent mar­ket­ing and stake­hold­er insights to thought lead­er­ship and tech­ni­cal writ­ing, we use a peo­ple-cen­tric approach to cre­ate high-qual­i­ty, depend­able and cre­ative work.

We recent­ly reflect­ed on four aspects of the first 25+ years of Bell­mont Part­ners – our cul­ture, his­to­ry, work and com­mu­ni­ty – and cap­tured these thoughts in video. Below is one of the videos from this series. Thanks for being part of our sto­ry – we look for­ward to con­tin­u­ing the journey.


“Part­ner is not just a word, it’s an action,” said Sarah Schiltz, dig­i­tal strate­gist. “We’re show­ing up against some of these huge PR agen­cies, and we may be small­er than them, but we are just as mighty.”

Much of the team’s exper­tise comes from years of expe­ri­ence in pub­lic rela­tions and oth­er com­mu­ni­ca­tions fields, and sev­er­al team mem­bers bring a wide vari­ety of oth­er pro­fes­sion­al and life expe­ri­ences to the table, as well. From non­prof­its to pro­fes­sion­al base­ball, to teach­ing and care­giv­ing, we use these unique lens­es to devel­op inno­v­a­tive strate­gies and solu­tions. No mat­ter where we’ve come from, curios­i­ty and integri­ty – what we call our jour­nal­is­tic approach ‑pave the way for success.

Brid­get Nel­son Mon­roe, part­ner and man­ag­ing direc­tor, knows this first­hand, shar­ing, “As for­mer jour­nal­ists, which a lot of us are, we approach every­thing with the sto­ry in mind. So, we ask good ques­tions, we ask ques­tions that might be tough ques­tions, that we know an audi­ence, or the pub­lic might be won­der­ing, too, and we get at the heart of it as quick­ly as possible.”

Expe­ri­ence, though cer­tain­ly an asset when cre­at­ing qual­i­ty work, serves as an invalu­able com­ple­ment to anoth­er nec­es­sary ingre­di­ent: passion.

“I love the work that we do,” said Mau­reen Cahill, part­ner. “From work­ing with icon­ic Min­neso­ta com­pa­nies that we’ve admired over the years, or that we’ve been a part of, we’ve worked at or we’ve worked with, to the vari­ety of the type of clients we work with, and the type of work we get to do, it’s amazing.”
