Why Do Good?
There are measurable business benefits in doing good.
We work side-by-side with our clients to help construct the goodness platform that will address your unique business challenges and goals.
Then we build the right team and tools to help you launch, perfect and sustain that platform for the long-term.
As our clients will tell you, we focus on results. No open-ended retainers. No cookie-cutter presentations. Just results.
The notion of transforming a naive, single thought into a global strategy for a Brand that has deeply developed behaviors should be more than one can imagine. Not so for Laura. It is without hesitation that I can say that Laura's skills at understanding our Brand essence and then building a strategic platform with very specific goals and objectives were instrumental in our ability to bring forth joinFITE with the strength and influence it has had. Her ability to marry concept with practical goal-setting and execution was critical in this endeavor and I can easily say that we would not be in the place we are without her effort. We are fortunate to have had Laura work hand in glove with us, and would, without question, do so again.
- Dan Ginsberg, CEO Dermalogica
Laura is an outstanding colleague and creative force who truly forges effective and meaningful partnerships for non-profit causes and for-good companies. Seamlessly blending strategic priorities, program goals, and budget realities in a harmonious, mutually beneficial way, Laura's insights and negotiations skills are tremendously strong. Laura was able to effectively drive huge results by scaling our reach and impact, without overburdening our resources - all while driving significant revenue back to the organization. Her sincere dedication, passion, and enthusiasm for this model are evident in her results and tireless hours of commitment. Laura is a smart, stable and honest team player who can be trusted - and I'd say YES to working with any chance I could.
- Christopher Gavigan, Co-Founder and Chief Products Officer, The Honest Company
Laura is a pleasure to work with. She is a great communicator and kept our project moving forward when it wasn’t easy to do so. She bent over backwards to make sure the partnership would work because she had a vision and knew the end result would be worth it. She has an amazing work ethic and follows through with everything she starts. I hope I have a chance to work with her again.
