Every Winterberry Group engagement is different. But ultimately, all of our clients share a common set of goals: to improve their performance, capitalize on emerging opportunities and grow their value.
Objective, Informed Perspective
In an increasingly complex business environment, it’s difficult to accomplish those things without an objective, informed perspective. That’s what Winterberry Group brings. Honed through years of operating experience and over 250 intensive consulting engagements, we offer our clients expert insight on the trends and issues impacting corporate value in the advertising, marketing, media, information and technology industries. We help them make intelligent business decisions about their company’s future. We help them gain a critical competitive advantage grounded in information, experience and process discipline.
But rich domain expertise only scratches the surface of the value we bring to clients. Since we work exclusively in the advertising and marketing world, we know the companies, influencers and dealmakers who matter most. And whether we’re compiling primary research for a new white paper or identifying potential synergies for buy-side M&A activities, we constantly turn to them for both up-to-date insight and direct feedback on potential strategies and business initiatives.
That’s a dynamic combination that no other consulting firm—in or outside our industries—can match.
Specifically, our consulting competencies fall into four major categories:
• Corporate Strategy
o Business Assessment: Situation analysis, competitive landscape assessment
o Strategic Development: Growth planning, marketplace benchmarking, needs analysis

o Holistic Marketing Process Architecture/Optimization: Prioritization of critical strategic and tactical priorities; process engineering at both general and granular levels
