Are you up for it? You’re invited to witness a new blog: Susan Goldberg from SGES co-launched a new blog, The Wonderland Odyssey. It is being used in conjunction with the co-authoring of a business book, “The Wonderland Odyssey, Turning Leadership on its Hat” by Susan and Rebecca Lacy from Pinnacle Management Group. Susan and Rebecca met through a mutual contact via linkedin and have been working on the book for a year. What started out as sharing business experiences and giving support in the consulting professions (executive search consulting and training) became a discovery of mutual passions, views, compatible personality traits and values. One of the results of this relationship, besides making business introductions and offering leads, was a driving force to write a book. The work is an unconventional business book from two unconventional business consultants: one in New York City, the other in the countryside of St. Louis. It is a business book for anyone who wants to learn about leadership, running and managing a business, entrepreneurialism, working with others, selfknowledge, self assessment, and personal development, but can’t abide reading any business book from cover to cover because it never holds your interest. Want something different? You can read about, follow and join the whole experience on the blog: http://wonderlandodyssey.com/

SGES and the www.susangoldbergsearch.com website is changing, which started in March of this year. Our latest change will be our choice for the non-profit we chose to support. The previous local charity will be replaced in the month of December, once Susan has interviewed the potential non-profits to choose which one goes best with our brand identity, and has determined which organization will most appreciate and benefit from our support. We decided to retire our affiliation with our original choice, which had been in place for two years, and move on as it became clear that our support was not making the difference we thought it would. It was the right time to help another worthwhile cause. What will the cause be? What will the organization look like? Please “stay tuned” for our update, and, meanwhile we’ll give you a clue: look closely at key words on the homepage of our website.
Earlier in the year, the company website for SGES was revamped. It has undergone additional changes today. The homepage now includes a photo stream of Susan Goldberg, the founder and principal, shot during the course of a Wednesday. The stream replaces a static image of her similar to the one in the “who” section of the site, www.susangoldbergsearch.com . We worked with both our graphic designer, Cristian Fleming, of The Public Society team (www.thepublicsociety.com), and the package deal of Jade Dressler, from Plant Agency (www.plantagency.com) and Alvaro (Al) Montagna, from Small Earth VC (www.smallearthvc.com).
Cristian and Susan worked on the idea for the photo streaming while she was formulating the updated branding for the firm. Then, Al captured the core energy of the Susan Goldberg Executive Search brand in the candid photo shots of Susan while she was working. Susan wanted the photographs to ”show me functioning naturally during the progression of a day”. The objective was to catch her at varied times, doing and thinking different things. “I work with people who are multi-dimensional real people, who are not just resumes. I want people viewing the site to understand I am a real person too, not a posed image of a person”. We welcome your feedback to let us know if we accomplished our goal. Thanks to Cristian, Jade and Al for their patience and joint efforts.
Anna Prata, or “Prata” to some of her friends and fans, a turnaround executive and potential winter Olympic athlete, was interviewed by Susan Goldberg for the weekly journal, “Woman Around Town”. The article is entitled, “The New Female Super Hero” and a new breed of super hero, she is. The driven executive has taken on the sport of skeleton; a sliding sport that uses the same track as bobsled and luge, but it is the head first version of the three. She competes against people half her age. Anna views her challenges in the sport similarly to her position as interim CEO when she is brought into a company to turn the company around and make it successful again: you have to remain calm under extreme pressure, have confidence in your decisions, speed and precision are critical, intensity and focus are demanded, you must always trust yourself and the head leads first are some of the similarities. Susan, was inspired by Anna’s special story, and the message it could send to many. The small female daredevil sled driver is a force to be reckoned with.

SGES reworked, reworded, and repositioned the company website, www.susangoldbergsearch.com ( www.sgesconsulting.com), to be consistent with all marketing and sales. The homepage, our purpose, who, news, sges retained search, Hiring 101 pages: all have been updated. There will be other changes in the next few months including the giving back page, and a couple of graphics/visuals. It become important for us at SGES to have a more unique brand that better reflects who we are and would attract like minds to the way we conduct our business and what we stand for as a company: an alternative approach to leadership, a direct honest style, a personal touch, embracing the idea of giving back, environmentally friendly, and open-minded. It’s also a reminder that our business is all about putting people first (not transactions, procedures, technology or accounting).
Special thanks to Simon Sinek for his speech and book, “Start with Why” which was the catalyst for the motivation behind the enhanced marketing efforts.
