How Andrew Works
Steps to Build a Thriving, Sustainable Business
Andrew Winston partners with clients in a variety of ways, including:
Single Day Engagements
We may start with a context-setting talk (see speaking page for more details) and then lead to Andrew conducting or contributing to a workshop with key executives or larger groups of staff.
Single-Topic, Short Consulting/Advisory Projects
Such as a review of a sustainability report or strategy plan/document, or an assessment of the company’s mission, vision, and goals to identify areas for improvement and ways the company can lead its peers.
Larger, Traditional Strategy Consulting Projects
Consulting work is often conducted in conjunction with larger consulting firms, either brought in by Winston Eco-Strategies to specifically address client needs, or Andrew works with firms the client has already selected. Andrew can draw on partner firms with specialties in sustainability communications and branding, supply chains, deep analytics, reporting, employee engagement, and much more.
Ongoing Strategy Advisory Board Participation
Usually on retainer, which may include multiple in-person and remote meetings with top executives during the year, allowing for ongoing support for strategy development and deeper dives into longer-term issues.
