Strategy Session



New light. New ideas. Clear Strategy.

It’s a rip your world apart and find the essence of success experience. Intense. Fun. And, unbelievably valuable.
— Roger Berry | CEO Fullbridge | Boston

What it is.

A One-Day Brand Clarity & Strategy Session is an expert-guided strategy workshop that walks the company's brain trust through a proven step-by-step process to better define the business strategy (problem/solution), customer pain points, core differentiators (why someone will choose you over the competition), and articulate new clear messaging, strategies and tactics to woo new customers, grow the business, and pummel the competition.


What it's not.

This is not a fluff session. We're not going to talk about your spirit animal, create a brand inspiration board, or produce a bunch of irrelevant and unusable information and opinions to throw into a big thick report that you'll never read or use.

If you're like most companies, you have more information than you can handle. We help you filter, focus, and create a clear business strategy and brand message so you can first, stand out, and second, quickly sell your differentiated benefits to your market. It's as simple and difficult as that.


What you get.

The result of the session is a short, usable, Brand Clarity & Strategy Summary that becomes a working roadmap to help guide the company's most important brand (and strategy) decisions moving forward. Key deliverables include new, clear messaging and strategy across:

  • Brand Vision, Mission and Cause
  • Brand Core Value and Core Belief
  • Brand Architecture
  • Brand Voice and Messaging
  • Real and Perceived Competitive Threats
  • Problem/Solution and Core Customer Pain Points

  • Brand Experience: Key Customer Experiential Touch-Points
  • Tying in Social Media
  • Your Brand's Elevator Pitch
Stop working with consultants in your industry—they see the world just like you do. If you want to be different (and you do), you need to see your industry in a new light so you can innovate.
