How We Serve Professional Services Organizations

For almost two decades, we have worked with accounting firms, law firms, financial companies and associations that serve professional services organizations. Our experience focuses on helping these organizations grow and increase their bottom line. We know that each firm has a unique culture and often times, many “bosses” that require a unique approach. Often, firms have a hard time articulating why they are unique and pairing their internal culture with their external message.

Professional Services

It’s no secret that there are many talented professionals who need a little help in polishing their business development skills.

At the core, professional services firms build relationships to build businesses and that’s what we do best. Our services to professional services firms include:

Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is a self-regulating business model that helps organizations be socially accountable — to itself, its stakeholders, and the public. CSR touches several aspects of society including economic, social, and environmental. CSR is a business strategy that involves employees, vendors, customers, members and the community in which they operate. CSR may impact purchasing decisions, manufacturing practices, employment policies, philanthropic endeavors and more.

In today’s marketplace, CSR is not optional. Study after study shows that corporate citizenship contributes to customer buying decisions and is an expectation of the Millennial and Gen-Z workforce. However, to many businesses and associations, it’s a challenge. Common obstacles include:

  • No Time or Budget
  • Choosing a cause or charity?
  • Senior-level Buy-in
  • Lack of Understanding of options

How We Help Businesses?

We believe that practicing CSR leads to important social change. We also know that changing the world doesn’t happen overnight. Here’s we come in. We work with small and medium-sized businesses and navigating CSR and developing a strategy that works for them.

How We Help Associations and Events?

Associations and events are in a unique position to bring people together in ways that no other force does. People meet to discuss and solve challenges that impact their businesses. While these smart, motivated individuals are thinking and in problem-solving mode, they have the opportunity to brainstorm ideas that can make a meaningful difference to a charity, for a community, and for society as a whole. We will work with you to identify how, when and what CSR looks like and how you can use the power of people to create change.

  • CSR Strategies and Planning
  • Charity and Cause Identification
  • Educational Sessions on the Importance of CSR
  • CSR + Event Integration
  • CSR Session Facilitation

Sometimes it takes an outside perspective to help you see your strengths (and maybe even your weaknesses). Our strategic marketing planning services help organizations figure out their core competencies, what their long-term goals are and then we help you create tactics to help increase your sales, grow your membership or achieve whatever objectives are important to you.

We facilitate retreats, assist with visioning and give you the tools that you need to better serve your target market.

In some cases our clients need someone who can serve as an extension of their team and act as an outsourced marketing director. If you think this is the direction that your company needs to go in, we would love to be a part of your team.
