About Us

GG Johnston

GG Johnston

GG Johnston is more than a business coach.  More than a consultant.  She’s a strategic thinking partner and adviser to business leaders who want to outperform their own historical growth and create a clear competitive advantage.

As past President and CEO of one of Denver’s premier public relations firms, GG spent years running her own business and serving as a trusted adviser to business leaders across many industries.  For more than 15 years she saw large and small companies invest significant resources in marketing and communications campaigns.  Some netted impressive results.  While others failed.

The difference, she recognized, is that organizations with clear strategy and people who are aligned with and mobilized around that strategy succeed by leaps and bounds over those that don’t.  That’s when she launched her consulting business, Downstream Partners.

Part mentor. Part therapist.  Part chairman of the board. GG stands shoulder-to-shoulder with clients, working inside your business to create strategic clarity, accountability and alignment around strategy.  So you get the maximum return on your investments in your staff, your customers and your partners.

GG’s specialties include:

  • Business strategy. Goal setting. Accountability.
  • Organizational Health and Culture
  • Optimized Operations
  • Interpersonal & Relationship Skill Building
  • Communication: Strategy and Coaching
  • Leadership & Staff Development
  • Team Building
  • Facilitating Effective Meetings
