I can help, if you’re a(n):

Brand or business that
- Struggles to align teams around a common, aspirational vision
- Is undergoing a change of leadership or is preparing to launch a new product or service
- Wants to tell a bigger story about the world and your role in it
- Is ready to lead with your values, and communicate more clearly and confidently

Agency or consultancy that
- Wants to deepen its strategy bench without increasing overhead
- Seeks a partner with deep subject-matter expertise in corporate citizenship, sustainability, and social impact
- Could use an occasional injection of creative juice or brain power for pitches and proposals
- Needs someone to lead a project; or play a supporting role alongside your current team
