STRIDE Story Group created a brand development plan for me that clearly outlined key audiences that I needed to be in front of. Having those audiences clearly identified and sorting out messages for each audience (and a clear ask) is helping me expand my reach and build relationships that will only strengthen my brand for the future.

While my client roster is the strongest it has ever been STRIDE Story Group’s brand review and assessment revealed changes that I could put in place that would take my business even further. Our strategy sessions have helped me see how doable these changes are and with Christina leading the charge on execution I am freed up to focus on my clients.
