Business Strategy

Point Nexus has helped numerous organizations in several industry sectors develop, manage and execute their organizational strategies. Functional strategic planning is critical to the success of every growing organization. But, even the best of strategies will fail if appropriate corporate structure or management experience is not in place to execute those strategies. Every organization is different and Mr. Shatto will work with your team, either as a hired interim executive or as a contracted consultant, to ensure the structures and management skills are in place to complete the business strategy.

Communications

Communications is an integral part of any organization's activities. Without communication in some form, there is no activity and their are no sales. Whether that communications is a sales person speaking to a customer, a website communicating a message or a blog or press release that provides information, it is all communications. Paradoxically, even lack of communications, says something about a company and punctuates the importance of why in today's hyper-communications fueled by social media, it becomes vital that your all forms of your messaging be deliberate and strategic. Point Nexus can help you create a strategy that will bridge the gap between traditional business communications and new forms of content made possible by emerging media technologies.
