Strategy is our middle name (literally). And it’s at the heart of everything we do for you. Whether sharing a big idea with the world, clarifying your signature brand voice, seizing a growth opportunity, creating a new product or brand name, determining how to approach a new audience, generating greater demand for your services, or increasing your brand recognition, Stern has the expertise – and the strategy – you need.

Our approach is personal and programs are custom made, unique to your brand and vision. Candid advice, coupled with creative brainstorming and immersive workshops, will inspire you to think big or home in – on ideas, brand strategy, market opportunities, messaging, voice, thought leadership approach or an overall communications strategy. We clarify, dissect challenges, capitalize on opportunities, and network with the brightest minds and businesses of greatest value to your goals.

And if an approach, tactic or message doesn’t tie back to your overarching business goals, we don’t recommend or pursue it. With Stern at your side, you’ll have the right strategies in place to captivate audiences, differentiate your brand and grow business.

 Platforms & Channels Planning

Scratching the surface in many places simply isn’t an effective marketing approach – for anyone. Instead, we ensure your voice – your messages, stories and content – reaches the right people in the right ways at the right time.

 Brand/Business & Communications Consulting

What is your vision? What are your business goals? What does success look like? We help you articulate your ideas, and tie them tightly to your objectives. Through intensive, collaborative strategy sessions, we probe to be sure your ideas have the potential to become reality, and offer ongoing insight and recommendations to make it happen.

 Leadership Advisory

Among Stern Strategy Group’s most valued assets are our wisdom, experience and unique abilities to guide some of the world’s best thinkers and leaders of our time. As your advisory partner, we put your mission and goals first, and push and probe to ensure your success; we listen, empathize, offer constructive criticism and advice, and follow through with smart ideas and strategies.

 Thought Leadership Development

Thought leadership is every brand’s most valuable asset. It cuts through the clutter of competition and commodity. It compels buyers to buy and influencers to influence. It elevates your reputation and builds your credibility. But you need more than great ideas. We guide you – and deliver your ideas – to the marketplace.

 Positioning & Messaging Architecture

Together, we create the language and the stories that will resonate with target customers, influencers, media and other important audiences. We uncover and define your signature voice, and develop, stimulate and engage conversation around pivotal issues.
