Test the waters
Consulting is like taking up a new hobby. It can be scary trying something new. Will I like it? What if it isn't a good fit? It's impossible to know all the answers, but you have this nagging feeling that if you don't give it a try that you'll regret it. So you choose to test the waters with the least risk possible. That's what our speaking engagements and custom workshops do for you. Giving you the opportunity to test the waters before you dive in.
Start at the top
Innovation is like mountain climbing. Best accomplished with a team. The expedition leader doesn't give you a manual and a good luck pat on the back and send you off on the climb. On the contrary, the leader is climbing their mountain alongside their team members.
Our executive services give top executives the tools of innovation. Equipped to climb their mountains, they lead their teams in climbing theirs.

The sky is awe-inspiring when every star is shining brightly
On a clear night, the starry sky is awe-inspiring. That is unless your view is obstructed by big buildings and glaring city lights. Inside an organization, our lights become dim when our people aren't shining their brightest. Our policies, procedures, and processes are an obstruction. And innovation is the focus of a single planet (aka department) and not the entire galaxy (aka organization).
If awe-inspiring is your goal then our company-wide innovation initiatives are what you're looking for.
