From early PR pioneers to Minnesota’s top public relations and public affairs firm
Since 1966, Goff Public has worked tirelessly to build trusted relationships, elevate reputations and solve problems for our clients.
Legendary ad men and politicos Bob Goff and Nick Coleman built Goff Public from humble beginnings. What started as a scrappy advertising shop transformed into one of the first public relations firms in the Twin Cities.
Today, Goff Public is a certified women-owned public relations and public affairs firm that blends its storied history with modern ingenuity — pairing tools, expertise and relationships to support clients as they communicate in today’s fast-paced world.
We build trust, advocate and solve problems for organizations that are improving the world. We are passionate about and invested in our work, our clients and our communities
We act with integrity on the job, in our lives and as brand stewards for our clients.
We strive to include diverse ideas, points of view, identities, backgrounds, abilities and experiences in all that we do.
We are an honest team that values candor.
Our trustworthiness is only possible through accountability. We see things through for each other and our clients.
We work collaboratively, share ideas, support each other and our clients, and succeed together.
No matter the size or scope of work, we apply excellence on everything to which we put the Goff Public name.
Invested in our communities
We make an impact through our ability to amplify messages, connect people, and help organizations succeed through public relations and public affairs. From serving on nonprofit boards and committees to lending a hand in our communities, the Goff Team is made up of passionate, engaged citizens. We encourage active involvement with organizations and causes that our team members feel called to serve.
Four pillars define how we invest in our communities:
- Our pro bono program
- Board service and engagement
- Volunteer events
- Charitable sponsorship and donations
Through these opportunities, Goff Public gives more than 5% of its gross earnings annually to nonprofit organizations. We’ve been a member of the Minneapolis Regional Chamber of Commerce’s Minnesota Keystone Program since 2013 and were honored in 2023 with the Minnesota Keystone Award.
Providing pro bono expertise to important causes and local nonprofits keeps our team engaged with the organizations and leaders who are improving our communities. Our Goff Comms Cohort expands our impact and creates learning opportunities for Minnesota-based leaders.
