Turn your vision and values into impact...and advantage.

 

The Longfellow Bridge connects Boston and Cambridge. The bridge is emblematic of a profoundly innovative, prosperous and values-driven region that forms Emblem Strategic's home-base for work with locally and globally consequential leaders. Completed in 1906, and renovated recently, the bridge re-opened in June 2018.

We deliver strategic advisory services and hands-on guidance to businesses seeking to grow with distinction. Our expertise is at the intersection between business and social impact. Leadership, Public Affairs, Diversity and Inclusion, Sustainability - these are our strengths. What we deliver is advantage.

 

We believe that your key decisions should be emblematic of what you stand for and why your organization exists. Sustained success is only possible with an alignment between who you are, what you do and how you choose to do it.

How we work

New advisory relationships start with meeting a specific, actionable need.

Usually we are retained on a recurring monthly basis to achieve a strategic objective. We spend time weekly with our clients, and usually multiple times a week plus a steady stream of work plus contact and conversation in-between. Week in, week out we are what some like to call "practical and tactical" - working with our clients on implementation and execution. When appropriate, we bring subject-matter experts to the table. Over time, the process strengthens the way a leader operates and the results become readily apparent. Ultimately, we focus on strengthening a client's capacity to achieve distinctive and sustainable business advantage.
