Manage Change Today for Tomorrow’s Sake
We are strategic planning and marketing communications practitioners who have served a wide variety of clients, from Forbes 2000 and privately held conglomerates to middle market family owned businesses and non-profit organizations, ensuring they achieve the most important goals of their organization by aligning their vision for the future, current capabilities, and what stakeholders expect from them.
We build our clients capability to deliver on what Winston Churchill called “intense simplifications when intense complexities emerge.”In the reputation economy of the 2010s where what an organization stands for matters more than what it sells, we provoke clients to think in new ways – from embracing competitive intelligence insights to course-correct their strategy to investing in the right content and conversations that build reputation for revenue sake, not reputation sake. We help build muscle memory in our clients and teach them how to fish so they are able to be self-sufficient in the fine arts of “either writ[ing] something worth reading or do[ing] something worth writing about.” – Ben Franklin
