Recognizing that there is no one-size-fits-all solution, Geraldine Plato established Plato Strategies in 2010 by assembling a network of veteran rural and urban planners, trained facilitators, creative community specialists, and researchers each of whom is equally passionate about making their communities more desirable places to live.



PLATO Strategies is committed to strengthening the fabric of communities, organizations, and groups by offering thoughtful guidance, fresh eyes, and a broad range of services. 


We work with a diverse group of clients that range from corporations to small and mid-sized towns to cultural and non-profit organizations


Curiosity and a creative approach to problem-solving set us apart. We empower groups, organizations, and those in leadership positions to recognize and strengthen their unique identity.


Recent clients include: Center for Rural Health Innovation; GE Aviation; AppHealth Care; Spruce Pine Potter's Market; NC Arts Council
