For those of you not familiar with our company, Chess Media Group is a management consulting and strategic advisory firm that focused on collaboration. We’re a small company of passionate people who love what we do and that’s how it’s always been. The same people who started the company are the same people who do provide the hands-on strategy development and execution that our clients value. This means that we get to work with a select group of fun and interesting clients every year. We are by no means a McKinsey-sized shop or have a complex traditional agency structure, nor do we ever want to be. Our smaller size enables us to be flexible and adaptable to our various types of engagements and our clients’ unique needs – which keeps things fun and interesting! One of the reasons why many of our clients like working with us is our smaller size – we are flexible and adaptable and it’s easy to develop closer relationships with us. The analogy I give people is that we want to be like House (the central character on the TV show of the same name) but for the collaboration space (and much nicer than he!). Like in the show, our firm consists of a small group of people that focus on the fun and challenging aspects of collaboration and how to make it work.
I want to share this recent testimonial that one of our clients sent over because Connie, our co-Founder, and I both found it very meaningful to us after our engagement:
