Our Services

We believe companies succeed when their stakeholders succeed and we’ve taken that philosophy to heart in creating our service offerings. We’re experts at meeting you where you are and helping you learn, grow and prosper from there.

Our difference lies in our ability to translate complex ideas into streamlined strategies. We help our clients organize their thoughts and then create the systems, processes, and strategies they need to achieve their goals.

  • 1 Sustainability education: We can teach and share the value of sustainability with your organization - from the board of directors to the c-suite to the front-line employees. It is extremely important for boards of directors to understand what global sustainability means because it is a measure of risk of a company. For example, if a board of directors is unaware of whether the company is purchasing inputs made with child labor abroad, there is a possible reputational risk if this is discovered and publicized.
  • 2 Sustainability strategies: Developing innovative strategies that drive profitable change is our specialty.
  • 3 Coaching and training: We can work with one person or a team of people to train them in sustainability so they can better impact their organization.
  • 4 Rebranding an organization as sustainable is an important but often overlooked step. Yet there’s growing research that says communicating these values to your stakeholders actually helps the bottom line.
  • 5 Sustainability summit: Organizing, hosting, and speaking at a sustainability summit for employees, trade associations, chambers of commerce, or other organizations seeking to raise the level of awareness and commitment to sustainability.
  • 6 Chief sustainability officer: Melanie can serve as your organization’s outsourced chief sustainability officer, saving you the time, hassle and resources of committing your own people to developing sustainability strategies.

Community Relations

By identifying shared goals, we help organizations build consensus and achieve progress. The key is building mutually beneficial relationships which can take time. Fortunately, Melanie already has those relationships. Put them to work for you.

“I spent the past six years as the pro bono coordinator for the largest law firm in town. My role was to connect lawyers who wanted to do pro bono work with organizations that focused on the area the lawyers wanted to impact. I had the privilege to get to know hundreds of our area’s nonprofit and community organizations while serving as chair of the finance committee through the Grant in Aid Bill, which annually invests $46 million dollars in nonprofits and community organizations in Delaware. Let me help your organization identify the areas of impact you want to have and then make the community connection. You will see mutually beneficial results from your partnership.

“I continue to serve nonprofits through my role on the boards of five nonprofits, including DANA, the trade association for Delaware nonprofit organizations.”

Let Melanie help your company establish local relationships for the greater good, developing your philanthropic footprint and generating impact.

Business Development

Creating relationships for financial growth can be intimidating to many people, but not to us. We approach relationships to give value and then, and only then, do we ask for value in return. We can help you grow your market impact through win/win solutions for you and your clients, customers or donors.

Are you a company looking to get more business in Delaware? Are you thinking of relocating or opening a branch in our state? We can help. We love to connect with up and coming businesses to get them in the door to make the connections they need to succeed.

Coaching

Do you need to grow your skills in any of our areas of service? We can help. A member of our team will work with you to create a custom coaching program to help you scale your abilities in sustainability, community relations or business development. Call or email us for more information.

"I am proud that DSM is one of the world's leading sustainability companies. In that tradition, we were honored to be the first company to obtain the Delaware Sustainability Certificate, certifying that our board is committed to sustainability and that we are transparent about our sustainability efforts. This Certificate was Melanie's brainchild, and she relentlessly advocated for it to become law. Melanie is a visionary who has a strong grasp of the big picture and how to get there. She drives change. If you want better for your organization, you want to work with Melanie. She will make it happen."

Hugh Welsh, North American President of DSM
