Delivering Value In The Social Sector

Giddings Consulting Group, LLC is not the typical run-of-the-mill consultants because we understand one size doesn’t fit all.

Having worked on the forefront of creating social change through community outreach and engagement – we know social change is hard. We don’t believe in emphasizing the latest buzzwords, providing quick answers or taking short cuts, because they don’t foster social change.

By adapting successful private-sector strategy, customer insights and marketing expertise, Giddings Consulting Group, LLC delivers significant value within the social sector.
