Superior Communication Strategies for Creating Stronger Connections

Matthew Moseley is a communications strategist and principal at Ignition Strategy Group, Boulder Colorado. He has spent his career at the intersection of public policy, business and government and has managed many public affairs projects and campaigns for organizations and companies. He is also a writer and adventure swimmer.

No communications challenge is too big or small—or even too bizarre. Moseley was hired by Johnny Depp to be the family spokesperson and communications director for Hunter S. Thompson’s funeral and ash-blast. He was also the family spokesperson for Lisl Auman who was freed from prison from a lifetime sentence for felony murder. He has written a book called “Dear Dr. Thompson: Felony Murder, Hunter Thompson and the Last Gonzo Campaign.”

Matthew Moseley is also an accomplished open water swimmer. On June 11, 2014 he completed the first ever-solo swim crossing of Lake Pontchartrain for 25 miles in 14 hours and 55 minutes and was the subject of a documentary by emmy-award winning filmmaker Wayne Ewing titled Dancing in the Water (trailer below). He also completed the first ever crossing from the Island of Culebra to Fajardo, Puerto Rico of 24 miles as well as well as 47.5 miles down the Colorado River from Moab to the Confluence of the Green River last summer making three first ever swims in a 13 month period.
