Transforming the way we work and live
One project at a time, Soles and Company are:
- creating safe and inclusive communities
- celebrating winter
- ending homelessness
- blazing a trail for sustainable transportation
- discovering fresh approaches to inspired urban development
Unparalleled roster of consulting talent
Our colleagues are highly regarded, independent consultants in their own right. Individually, we are leaders who deliver results and set trends in our respective fields. Collectively, we create and deliver strategies that take our clients through their own transformations.
We work where our clients work: in person, online and through social media.
Soles and Company are:
- world-class market researchers and academics who forecast the future as well as report on the here and now
- writers who translate technical writing and jargon into words that make sense—and that readers want to read
- technology geeks who humanize online experience—creating fresh versions of high-tech and high-touch
- graphic recorders who translate ideas into images that capture a thousand words
Connected through projects and beyond
We form ever-stronger connections within communities—within and between professions—as well as within organizations and the industries they serve.
We are the company our clients turn to for controversial and challenging projects—and when they know it’s time for a big win!
Practical, real-world transformations
We take clients from stuck to unstuck, from simplicity through complexity—and back again—to actions that make a positive difference in the everyday lives of the people our clients serve.

When we began our most recent project, we repeatedly heard “No way will you pull this off.” Katie designed an innovative strategy. As a result of her creativity, relationship building and old-fashioned perseverance, we have traveled from 0% chance of success to 99% chance of success.
