Like many independent consultants, the ways I support clients has evolved over the years — and 2020, no doubt, brought more opportunities to consider new approaches given the new realities we are all facing. A sampling of recent engagements have included...
Conducting rapid-fire marketing research interviews to help teams gut-check past assumptions with key client/customer segments
Providing guidance and coaching support for teams re-thinking service offerings, target audiences, and revenue streams
Helping teams identify and source new resource partners/vendors to support broader marketing needs in more flexible/cost-effective ways
Creating partnerships and programs that drive community engagement and social good goals
I am also happy to make connections to other trusted partners if a project isn't a fit for me — so don't hesitate to reach out anytime.
A few kind words...
