How We Connect

At Stacey & Associates we differentiate between Business Development and Marketing. Specifically, marketing is the process of creating awareness for the firm and providing support for business development activities. Business development is the process of identifying opportunities, developing relationships and securing profitable work for the firm. They do not represent a continuum or a hierarchy. They have different processes, products and tracks of development. Business development and marketing intersect and complement each other, both with the goal of bringing in new work in different ways. At Stacey & Associates, we offer both types of services, separate or in combination, based on your specific needs. Our Organizational Support services are designed to build internal capacity in these critical areas so leadership and technical staff have additional tools and resources at their disposal.

Clients rely on our services as an extension of their own staff. Most often we become essential team members, trusted confidants and close friends with our clients.

  • "When Ann challenged us to be truly different and not just vanilla, it made me look at everything we do with marketing and business development. We need to know whether we are just another clanging cymbal in the din or are we a virtuoso whose performance demands attention? Her insight and friendship have eased my mind."
