“The results yielded from primary research, created a picture we use to help promoters market Hispanic artists in the Denver market. So far, we’ve been able to increase the number of events we hold each year as a result and are very thankful to Janina and her team for the very thorough job she did for us.“

Rich Carollo, Director of Sales and Marketing, Colorado Convention Center

“[Calderon’s] team was instrumental in identifying key organizations and community facilities to assist in outreach efforts to affected residents and community members. They organized surveys for several small focus groups centered on freight, business, and bicycle and pedestrian mobility. Input from these focus groups was instrumental in understanding the opportunities and challenges surrounding these topics in the project area.”

“On the I-70 East EIS project, Calderon provided crucial guidance and communication strategies on how to build trust between the community and the project. Calderon truly improved the communication between the project team and the Hispanic communities affected. Calderon’s expertise and messaging helped us get to acceptance of a Preferred Alternative for the project, by providing mitigation that responded to the community needs.”

Kirk Webb, Former I-70 East EIS Project Manager, Colorado Department of Transportation
“I was consistently impressed by Calderon’s ability to provide strategic and tactical ideas on how to reach out to the Hispanic community of Commerce City… Calderon team’s well-honed interpersonal and communications skills made it possible in a short period of time to develop productive working relationships with community leaders and residents to meet our project goals. They have full verbal and written command of the Spanish language necessary to create instant trust and credibility with the community. Calderon’s translations were clear, concise and effective at conveying the appropriate message.”
Mizraim S. Cordero, Intergovernmental Relations Manager, Commerce City, CO
