I was also impressed with Erin’s ability to build internal processes that were efficient and easy to implement.

In that role, she supported a successful market entrance into a foreign country, working hand-in-hand with me through strategy development, relationship-building and negotiations. Erin’s management expertise and strategic mindset were critical to our process, enhancing the discussion of other experts at the table to create a cohesive plan of attack.

 Senior Principal at Stantec

Erin’s ability to get at the root of a problem and then support a team in crafting the solution is exceptional.

“We worked with Black Fox Strategy in 2019 to gap assess an issue we had affecting client capture in one of our groups. From the start, we thought we knew what the problem was and that Erin would simply confirm our suspicions. We were enlightened when her analysis revealed that what we thought was an issue wasn’t one at all – we actually had a completely different problem. She then worked with our team to create an action plan to get the group back to an optimum level of performance. The results have been extremely successful – we couldn’t be happier! ”
