We Are Proud to be a B Corp

We pride ourselves on not being just another consulting firm. We don’t come in with briefcases and cookie cutter solutions. We meld our expert process with collaboration and a bit of fun, to bring out the best possible results.

As a brand strategy firm, we see a lot of false “good” claims. We didn’t just want to claim we were a company held to higher standards; we wanted to prove it. Compass(x) Strategy first certified as a B Corp in 2011 and continues to be certified today after two recertification audits.

We Love What We Do

And So Do Our Clients

I loved the thoughtful and intelligent approach to the research and the collaboration that helped them take our achilles heel and turn it into a great plan…Compass(x) helped us take a very complex challenge, telling the story of our solution, which was designed to tackle complex problems with many users, buyers, and influencers with very different levels of understanding. In short, making our story simple was really hard and they finally helped us do it!

Founder, ThinkCERCA

With consultants there can be a lot of smoke and mirrors, but the Compass(x)Strategy  process is very clear, precise and easy to follow. It leaves you with direction, so you don’t just get a big binder on your desk with a lot of non directional information. It’s all actionable.

President, TargetCom

Being a small company, we were doing many of the right things, but needed to do a better job of utilizing our resources…They did an excellent job of understanding our business goals, our talents and our culture, and didn’t just present information we already knew…As a bonus, we absolutely enjoyed working with them. Their culture is a perfect combination of extremely intelligent with a laid back style, and that made it very easy to collaborate with them.

Mike McDonald

VP Business Development, Prime Advantage

We loved working with Compass(x)! They did a phenomenal job digging in to understand our needs and creating a brand strategy that really addressed the issues and felt like a natural fit for us. The results created a significant shift in how we communicate about ourselves and will have a long lasting impact.
