When people start their own consulting firms, so many seem preoccupied with swanky offices, cool clients, and world domination (okay, maybe not that last part, but doesn’t it seem like they’re obsessed with becoming bigger, flashier, and more “impressive”?).

That's never been my dream.

For the past 15 years, my focus at Increased Results has been on helping bright people find creative, effective solutions that will move their businesses ahead… period.

Interestingly enough, it’s worked out pretty well: 78% of the folks who’ve hired me once hire me again, so they keep me busy. I’m “hands-on” with every project. If we need specialized help, I know who to call. It’s not about flash… it’s about increased results.

That’s my approach. You can scroll down to sample some memorable projects from our 15 year history or if you’d like to see a full bio and 30 different recommendations, visit https://www.linkedin.com/in/themarketingstrategyconsultant.

Whether you’re working in marketing, consumer insights, or product management, you’re under pressure to find smart solutions to big problems as quickly as you can.

You’ve got a lot on the line. I know, because I’ve been there.

When I worked in brand management, I didn't need big consulting firms spouting slick jargon, going on and on about their proprietary processes, or offering 10,000-ft recommendations- - I needed meaty insights that would help me hit my short- and long-term numbers.

Deep thinking, strong consumer research, and clear direction are what drive Increased Results, and that’s why over ¾ of the folks who hire me once hire me again. They trust me to deliver, and I do.
