We are a strategic consultancy that specializes in publishing and membership

Alternative media, squeezed resources and new technologies are demanding a rethink of business models, sales and marketing strategies, and customer relationship management. Progressive societies and publishers must adapt their marketing activities and skills to this shifting environment. We help you make that transition.
