WHAT WE DO

Emblem Strategic offers the following service lines in support of exceptional leaders, businesses and organizations:
  • Emblem Inclusion -- ​​We assemble diverse teams that can deliver a resourceful and strategic focus on diversity, equity and inclusion to fuel business growth and create opportunity -- on a 'stem to stern' or project basis. Dramatic changes to accessing talent, building commercial relationships, changing culture.

  • Emblem Issues -- Whatever public policy or public issue stands in the path of your growth (for some it is tied to their impact on the environment, or their reliance on a foreign-born workforce at any level) there is a way to create a strategy that is not just mitigation - a strategy that creates impact and advantage.

  • Emblem Advisory -- Executive coaching with a focus of working one on one with CEOs and up & coming leaders within successful organizations, to cultivate skill sets, sensibilities, perspective, experiences that most rising leaders are just not generally getting from their climb up the ladder or their daily grind. 

  • Emblem Outreach -- Some clients need public affairs help building relationships in government and for some it's better relationships with key media personalities other important stakeholders. Sometimes this work has a business development focus, cultivating new channels for deal flow. It's about leveraging an impact mindset and bringing our networks, creativity and credibility to bear in creating relationships .

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.
