"As a U.S.-based company, going through a major corporate transition period, I found it highly beneficial to engage in consultative corporate level discussions without time limits. Among key outcomes of highest priority from your consultative assistance are the new BaneBio mission statement, corporate values, corporate local and global strategic direction, marketing strategy, and website content. I want to initiate and implement several marketing ideas/concepts resulting from your consultative services and advising, and I feel like you could really help me get things moving in the right direction.  Through our strategic discussions and your knowledgeable input, you have me excited about not only launching the new website but also creating new marketing magic around it.
