Gratitude

EDGE PILLAR

How do you want your clients, team and community to FEEL about your company and brand? While you may have a strong vision of your brand, is it being communicated consistently to your team and clients? Business owners get stretched thin, and while we understand showing gratitude and giving back is important, showing the appreciation you feel can sometimes take a back seat to more urgent business challenges.

Let us help give you the EDGE! When applied consistently, EDGE Gratitude is an essential support for other pillars, and can have the greatest impact on your organization.

 

Demonstrating deep and authentic appreciation for your team, clients and community is a business MUST HAVE, and never a one-off.

From hand-written notes, random acts of kindness, social events to gratitude gifts, we will help you show those who make your business what it is feel valued…while increasing engagement and loyalty with your organization.

We work with you to develop and implement a customized Gratitude plan that reflects the goals of your brand and aligns with your vision. We support you in putting the plan to action by holding your hand every step of the way.

"When the pandemic hit, like most organizations, St Felix Centre lost our usual means of connecting with our donors and supporters when we were no longer able to get together in person. We weren't sure what to do but fortunately Ashlee and her amazing team at Our Forte were able to support us in delivering a completely virtual engagement event. I was a little skeptical at first but Our Forte, as usual, exceeded our expectations! We had a virtual beer tasting and it gave us an incredible opportunity to connect with our supporters. Even just the simple act of being able to see each other without masks gave everyone a huge boost! Ashlee and her team led the event from concept through to final debrief and made the whole experience stress free, seamless and most importantly, fun! We will definitely be hosting more events like this with Ashlee and Our Forte!"
