As we develop our new website, we need to more succinctly, energetically, and directly communicate who we are, the transformational nature of our process, and what our competitive advantage is in the area of diversity/inclusion/multicultural consulting.
One advantage we have is that Pyramid Consulting has already done the research into the competitive landscape and current public perception of the organization. (They also interviewed our clients.) Between their "excellent comprehensive report" (per our Account Manager at CAF) and our current verbiage heavy materials, we have the foundational materials for this project.
