This is 21st Century Marketing Talent Curation…your talent and sometimes our talent, armed with advanced relationship skills, together making a difference. The secret is in how we approach the work. We get in the trenches with you so that the work gets done right and fast and we leave your team with the practical skills, relational capacities, and accountability needed to thrive.
Are we a training company? You betcha.
The discipline of marketing is an emotionally-driven process informed, advanced, and supported by technology and data. The more connected, purposeful, and emotionally adept a marketer is, the more relevant and satisfying is the experience of a brand for the consumer. We teach people relationship skills to connect more deeply with each other and in challenging community dynamics. We teach future-casting and precognition to unlock the empathy and intuition inherent in your people to forge successful paths through unknown territory.
Are we a movement? Hell yes!
We are a movement of marketing professionals who see themselves as agents for change vs. order-taking functionaries in service to a greedy beast. We are a community of marketers disenchanted by the status quo envisioning and acting on the future together. Because we truly believe that marketers hold the power to change the world just by their beliefs and the way they operate, we have developed a community and set of resources to help them help the businesses that will save us and our sweet planet achieve their full market potential.
