I’ve worked with Stern in roles at three organizations during my career, dating back to the mid-1990s. From successfully guiding one company through a challenging repositioning, to elevating the perception of another and today, ensuring we are engaging with the most influential journalists, Stern has been a true strategic partner. The team’s ability to clearly understand business objectives and challenges, articulate our story, and help maximize our marketing efforts makes a meaningful impact on our organization.

What makes Stern Strategy Group truly distinctive is not just the power of their thinking, but how they work with their clients. They take a holistic and entrepreneurial approach, thinking broadly about what's possible to move an individual or organization forward. They are always willing to stick their neck out for clients and take calculated risks to leverage their most important and trusted relationships, knowing that without those risks there will not be breakthrough impact. This is a very rare quality in the industry. If what you want is just a firm that can pitch a new product or service to the Today show, you can find that in many places. If you want a firm that can ensure important ideas are first made stronger and more compelling – and then heard by the right audience in just the right way, you should definitely talk to Stern Strategy Group.

Over the course of many years of partnership with Stern Strategy Group, the firm delivered excellent results. The agency’s ability to quickly grasp complex technical information and effectively communicate it to a variety of audiences, manage successful influencer events, and drive C-level thought leadership through high profile speaking engagements generated increased recognition for the value both Siemens Medical Solutions and GE Water deliver to the world.

The Stern Strategy Group team is comprised of consummate professionals – the best in the business. They have been fair and firm, clear and considerate to me and to every client they represent whom I know personally. The organization's ability to manage my speaking engagements and the full range of public relations and publishing opportunities over the past decade has made me much more effective, and has simplified my life substantially. I am excited to see how I can work with Stern Strategy Group’s advisory services to be even more effective.
