Think Strategically, Deliver Success.

A lot of professional service firms have talented staff and great expertise.  That alone won't make you stand out.

Strategy turns a group of experts into a successful business.  Strategy differentiates firms from their competition.  Strategy turns a good proposal into a winning proposal.  Strategy allows for long term transformation and success. 

We use strategy to help you develop your competitive and strategic advantage to write winning proposals, win more work, and achieve your goals.

Hence our name, Advantage Strategy Consulting, Inc.

We had a proposal writing brainstorming meeting with Advantage Strategy Consulting, Inc., facilitated by Mary Jo. We were so impressed with her ability to lead us through the process of creating a winning proposal for a very important project. It was fun, informative and a little addicting. We can’t wait to work with them again!
