JOE NEWSUM

Tap into one of the best strategic minds




Image

I've created a ton of free content on Stratechi.com, but when you need an independent and objective strategy and problem solving expert, it makes sense to personally connect with me.

Whether you need 30 minutes to bounce some ideas off of me, an hour or two to go deeper into some of your important topics, a workshop, or a few days of strategic support, book a confidential session below or email me at joe@stratechi.com.

I've successfully supported hundreds of clients on pretty much every topic. I’ve been a CEO, CFO, CMO, COO, strategy consultant, coach, along with many other roles. Over the past 25 years, I’ve led 20,000 employees, helped build and sell the 9th fastest growing company in the U.S., worked at McKinsey for 5 years, managed $250 million budgets, created numerous successful startups, and much more.


Book some time, and let's have a productive conversation about what is on your mind. After 30 minutes, if it isn't a mutual fit, I'll refund your money.
