Find out how critical thinking, and leadership through meaningful marketing research -- and above all, our passion for strategic marketing communications -- have made us the preferred digital business transformation go-to-market partner that we are today.

Our Heritage

Our founder, David H. Deans, uncovered the need and growing demand for a forward-thinking professional services company that specializes in strategic market development for the evolving Technology, Media and Telecommunications industries.

During three decades of experience -- including working at start-ups, mid-sized businesses and large multinational companies -- he participated in numerous product development projects and associated international launch campaigns.

As a result of witnessing several noteworthy marketing successes, and an even greater number of lost opportunities, he applied those lessons-learned to formulate a methodology for how to approach the most demanding market development challenges -- specifically within the Technology, Media and Telecom domains.

Our Research

Commercial Storytelling challenges can vary — sometimes dramatically — depending upon the technical complexity of the industry. As an example, in the high-tech sector, it’s difficult to create the most compelling messaging and editorial without prior deep-domain expertise.

Therefore, broadly experienced people who are multifaceted tend to make the best business strategists and commercial content authors. However, finding qualified staff is very problematic — because the sales and marketing Digital Polymath talent puddle is so shallow. Moreover, we envision a new leadership role to drive value creation; the GenAI Polymath who is uniquely skilled in Generative AI.

Our Guidance

What’s the solution to these challenges and opportunities?

Create a talent development culture around Story-Driven B2B Marketing.

In the tech vendor sector, companies that are attempting to make the transition to brand journalism need to develop a talent mentoring and coaching program, to increase their thought leadership bench strength among their recognized internal subject-matter experts.

They must also create recognition and rewards for people who invest the time and effort to become multifaceted contributors. Why? Employee behaviors change when job performance appraisals acknowledge the value of this quality in their organization's culture.
