House United is a strategy + creative consultancy for brands looking to become all they aspire to be.
We work with brands directly, and with agencies as trusted partners. 

Do you need BUSINESS PLANNING or MARKETING PLANNING?
Or OPERATIONS PLANNING?

 

Likely, a hybrid of all of the above.

Welcome to The Workshop At The House

DOES YOUR ORGANIZATION KNOW WHERE IT IS GOING AND HOW TO GET THERE?

THE WORKSHOP AT THE HOUSE BRINGS A BUSINESS AND OPERATIONAL BASIS TO BRAND MANAGEMENT.

 

Participants come out of the process knowing more about why whatever it is that they do – operations, sales, product development, professional services – is relevant and essential to marketing. 

 

The outcome is a strategic plan that is a marketing plan that is an operations plan which is a business plan that is actionable. REJOICE. 

 

WHAT'S DIFFERENT?

It’s strategy development with a DIY twist: 

Concentric circles of input

Professional development for all participants 

Integration of organizational equities into marketing strategy 

Prioritization training for focused success

Contemporary, speedy and intelligently fun

Don’t let urgent and reactionary take the place of important. Plan for important. Run for opportunity. 

The Workshop At The House is a series of consensus modules that reduce an organization’s justification for chaos. The program is scalable, can replace legacy planning or integrate with it, supports leadership, and focuses teams/organizations to realistically attain short and long-term objectives. It is DIY in that lasting brand success must evolve from the inspired execution of the people inside the organization, not from an outside entity. The Workshop At The House is where brand evolution is built. 

One part facilitation, one part education, one part counsel.
