Strategic Counsel to
Position You for Success
Any campaign for success is strengthened by the experience of a trusted advisor. We have counseled executives across industries in the US and Canada, arming them with strategic insight, creative solutions, and solid master plans. Some of our clients choose to stay on retainer while others recruit us per project. Whatever your needs, we will provide you with the winning strategy to execute a successful plan.
Pitch Development / Interview Coaching
You’ve been short-listed for a project you’ve been chasing for over a year. You know what the client wants and have a great relationship with the selection committee, but you’ve also invested countless amounts of time and money into courting the client, doing preliminary “concept” work, and giving the marketing team content for the proposal and presentation. Sound familiar? It pains us to see companies struggle through this process.
The bottom line is that most professionals went to school for a technical skill, not for sales, public speaking, or stand-up comedy, yet an interview asks you to perform all these skills and more. We make things easier.
We have developed hundreds of winning presentations for developers, architects, engineers, interior designers, contractors, real estate brokers, law firms, and other service providers. Whether working with our client’s in-house marketing teams or with our in-house graphic designers, we identify key project issues and drivers, dissect our clients’ true points of difference, devise a unique and engaging presentation theme, develop a presentation framework, and assist with presentation. To ensure a memorable delivery, we also coach each presenter and develop leave-behind materials that stand apart from the competition.
Communication comes in many forms, from grass roots efforts to federally funded programs. Whatever the background of your project, we can address a specific scope of the project or handle the general public perception as a whole. We have worked with local governments, community representatives, key stakeholders, and the general public to launch effective and informative communications plans and outreach strategies. We bring the know-how to streamline your project and gauge interest. Whether it’s a PR Roadmap, public involvement workshops, committee meetings, digital strategies, survey creation, or participation measures, we are equipped for a smooth and seamless project. With skill and a transparent, trusted flow of communication, we help your efforts reach key audiences and progress toward the end goal.
