And beyond our work with clients….

We sponsor innovative events.  In 2013 an inspiring group of women Leaned In with VisionFirst, a conversation inspired by Sheryl Sandberg’s book.  In 2014 we Raised the Curtain on Leadership, gathering at theater venue Playwright’s Horizons to discuss Work of Leaders, a book we liked so much we wrote the Foreword.

For over two years we hosted Invent the Future, a radio talk show on innovation and leadership broadcast on VoiceAmerica.com. Guests ranged from innovation gurus Seth Godin and Tom Kelly to thought leaders Peter Block and Brooking Institute’s Joyce Ladner.

We have a history of giving back, lending our professional skills to other worthy causes. .
