I’m Thomas Slaughter, President and CEO of Strategic Intent Consulting Group, Inc. (SICG). My partner and I founded SICG in 2015 as a marketing and technology business consulting firm to help Nonprofits, Small-medium size businesses, and Entrepreneurs reach their full potential and effectively serve their clients.
Over my years as a consultant for both a fortune 500 corporation and a boutique technology firm, I saw that nonprofits and small-medium size businesses were routinely misguided by inexperienced consultants or sales people disguised as consultants putting them in a worse off position then they were before hiring them. I recall setting with a former client while I was working for the fortune 500 company and them telling me about a technology investment they made for nearly a $250,000. I asked them if they used their 501(c)(3) status to purchase the software because I was aware that there was a big discount for a 501(c)(3) organizations if they did. Sadly they did not, because their consultant did not advise for them of this. In turn they called the software vendor they made the purchase from and explained the situation. What they found out was that the company they purchased the software from was a 3rd-party re-seller of the software, whom the consultant worked for. Unfortunately, they could not get a refund, because of their strict no refund policy. As the result of this ill advised purchase they spent nearly $200,000 more than they had to for the software.
This is only one case of many that I’ve witnessed over the years. As a result of what I saw, I decided to start SICG to bring the knowledge, experience, and business acumen my team and I have to help those unsuspecting businesses and organization from getting taken advantage of.
I want to thank you for visiting our website and look forward speaking with you soon.
