Consulting Services -- Providing "thought capital" and strategic insight
Corporations, trade groups, professional associations and advocacy groups often want access to ’Thought Capital’ and strategic insight. Many of our experts are experienced consultants to corporations, government agencies, NGOs, professional associations and trade groups. They can help organizations understand and strategically react to the accelerating pace of change in this field, such as the impact of new legislation. Briefings can be as short as an hour or as long as several days, depending on need. This service is available on contract.
If “thought capital” is what you seek, our founders include professionals with advanced degrees, professional experience and academic qualifications from Harvard Business School, Wharton, MIT accompanied by extensive career experience advising leaders of corporations, government agencies, NGOs, foundations, trade groups and associations. They advise clients about the impacts of acoustical phenomenon (such as sound, noise, privacy, and the health and economic effects thereof) on public policy (macroeconomics) and on how to develop effective private-sector strategies (i.e., microeconomic response).
For instance, our business advisers are well-informed about and engaged in, work on “quiet technology & products” through efforts such as the National Academy of Engineering, federal “BuyQuiet” programs, and work with several federal, state and local agencies and NGOs. They also advise on such matters as standards development and building codes that affect demand for products and services.
Corporate clients who have benefited from our expertise on issues related to sound/noise/quiet have included: Aetna, Apple, Armstrong, Cabot, Dupont, GE, Herman Miller, Merrill Lynch, Morgan Stanley, Philips, Steelcase, St.Gobain and many others.
Corporate advisory services are available on contract at market rates. Services are billed through our not-for-profit services group and income from this work supports the ongoing mission of The Quiet Coalition.
If your company is interested in considering our advisory services, we would be happy to discuss your interest and to put together a proposal for your consideration. Services range from 1-hour boardroom briefings to half-day or full-day educational sessions, to long-term research-oriented assignments aimed at matching corporate competencies with market opportunities.
