Clients

Line

Our clients span the globe.
You dictate the kind of services we deliver and develop. Management consulting is often less defined than, say, CPA services, so we'd first like to introduce you to the types of clients we've helped and the broad categories of assistance that different size clients tend to request.

Size

We deliberately strive to serve all sizes of clients, avoiding specialization in a particular sector for one very good reason: each has strengths and weaknesses which we are able to observe, learn from and share with clients in other sectors. The scope, application and the projects themselves are scaled to match the realities of each client's resources and the marketplace. Although we've provided most types of services to all size firms, here are the five most frequent type of assignments we've conducted within each category:

Business Introductions and Visit Arrangements

In today's demanding market environment, companies everywhere, of all sizes and types, are looking for suppliers, partners, transfer of technology, or even just expert information. Our international clients have found that business meetings in America are far more productive when we arrange these visits and accompany them as consultants, even if they have interpreters to provide language assistance. We will be happy to refer international clients to travel agencies to attend to transportation and lodging needs.
