What Sets Us Apart

 Three key factors set HL Strategy apart from other communications firms.

100% Senior Professionals

Most agencies employ a few very senior people, some mid-level professionals, and lots of junior staff. HL Strategy is different. Our nearly 30 consultants all have between 10 and 30 years of experience – and most have more than 20. We’ve led marketing, communications, and branding for companies, nonprofit organizations, and corporate divisions. We’ve held senior positions with global agencies. We deliver polished, thoughtful, high-quality work. We don’t have all of the answers all of the time, but we know the questions to ask, and our advice is informed by experience.

100% Distributed Workforce Since Inception

Distributed work is nothing new for HL Strategy. We’ve been doing it since our founding in 2007. Our consultants work confidently and comfortably from wherever they are. When it’s important and safe to do so, we visit client offices, collaborate in coworking spaces, and connect in other creative ways to get the job done. We haven’t missed a beat as the world has transitioned to remote work. And we’re happy to share what we’ve learned about doing it so successfully. Spoiler: It is less about tools and more about culture.

100% Positioned for Your Success

The custom team we assemble to support your business aligns our talent and expertise with your organization’s unique challenges and opportunities. This thoughtful process, along with HL Strategy’s high consultant retention rate, means the professionals you work with will be there for the long haul. Our senior consultants bring the full spectrum of marketing and communications know-how to your organization. We’re flexible about whether you outsource entirely to us, invite us to collaborate with your talent as one seamless team, or ask us to collaborate with other agencies.
