where is your firm headed

Business Planning

It's all about the three-to-five-year plan.


We'll review where you’ve been, where you are and where you want to go (you will be encouraged to dream BIG). How deep is your backlog? Do we need to win more immediate work? Where is the money being spent and how do we get you there? How do we work your existing portfolio to tell the right story so you can branch into a new sector?


We collaborate on the best course of action to get you partnering with the right contractors. Align yourself with projects that are uniquely you and increase your win rate in a competitive field. It’s not our practice to simply hand you the blueprint and say “walk on”. Cakewalk will be your partner in cultivating a sustainable relationship that grows with you.


Stay out of stasis. 


Team Development

Cultivating the next generation of leadership.

Ever wonder who are the up-and-coming seller/doers in your firm? Too often we’re so underwater with work we forget to plan for the future. Without training, mentorship and a master plan, project managers stay PMs, VPs stay out of the C-Suite and principals stay in the office. Groom your firm’s future with a strategic plan for growing the business. Forming your organization in your extraordinary vision is more than just streamlined systems, bigger contracts and an improved workflow. It’s building an entity that can be flexible enough to change with the rapidly-evolving marketplace, yet strong enough to be in it for the long haul. 


Hiring marketing staff is challenging.


And, when you find that person, you want them to have industry knowledge. If they have skills but don’t know all the acronyms, you are often tasked with training on the job. Who has the time to train?


Here is your solution! An intensive training for new AEC marketers. This two day conference will take a small group through the nuts and bolts of our industry. This will give them (and their employers) the tools for success.


Do you know someone who could benefit? Have a new hire who needs to add some tricks to their toolbox? Let’s chat.
