My name is Aaron Dalton.

Imagination Wins is the name of my boutique communications company, which I launched back in 2004.


A lot has changed since then technologically and socially, but one thing has stayed the same -- imagination is still the spark that drives innovation and success.


You know what's even better? Imagination paired with experience


For chefs, the proof may be in the pudding.


For writers, it's in the clips. 


Here are a few of my favorites:


- An Americans for the Arts essay series on the benefits of arts-business partnerships.


- Multiple Wallace Foundation case studies on building arts audiences where I served as co-author (San Francisco Girls Chorus, Steppenwolf Theatre) or editor (Pacific Northwest Ballet, The Road to Results).


- An article in the Stanford Social Innovation Review showing how nonprofit organization Room to Read created more than 5,000 libraries in eight years to foster greater literacy from Cambodia to Zambia.  


- A case study for consulting firm Watson Wyatt on Indonesian Bank Danamon used employee opinion surveys to strengthen leadership, improve employee satisfaction, reduce attrition and raise its appeal to new recruits


- An article for IBM Systems magazine showing how more efficient mainframe computers can help companies process greater amounts of data with less energy. That's better for the environment, and also better for the bottom line.   


- A custom-published article for Dallas' Medical City hospital on a new protocol to diagnose and treat stroke patients with a clot-busting drug that can reduce brain damage and improve the chances of a full recovery.


- An article for UCLA College Report demonstrating how an anthropology professor is working to map patterns in crime data to predict where crime is likely to occur so that police can take preventative actions. (Yep, sounds like something straight out of Minority Report!)
