Check your company's strategic plan. Chances are, purpose and culture are found in the Periphery, if they're included at all. We bring these critical strategy elements back into focus, where they do the most good.

Periphery helps companies harness purpose and culture to drive sustainable growth and positive social impact.

A paradigm shift is taking place in business. The rules for succeeding – for creating strategic advantage – have fundamentally changed.

Extensive research proves that the traditional shareholder-biased business model, where profit is pursued at the expense of people and planet, is an inferior generator of value.

Instead, a new stakeholder-based business model where greater profit is earned as a natural bi-product of aligning and serving all stakeholders – customers, employees, investors, suppliers, community, and planet – is the most efficient way to maximize growth over the long term.

We have a profound opportunity to elevate humanity through business.
— Michael Porter

We are a collaborative of leading executives and consultants that have teamed up to form a “consulgency,” bringing together the best elements of a consultancy and an agency to deliver brilliant strategy, operational experience, and creative in one place.

Periphery helps companies make bigger, better promises – and then legitimately change their operating model to deliver against them. 

Our clients understand that purpose paves the way to profit, and that profit paves the way to shared value between the company and the ecosystem where it operates. 

These aren't just the four steps of our process.
They're four giant leaps for mankind.

And it's how we help companies take advantage of the Periphery instead of settling for traditional strategy.


Take a stand.

Purpose is bigger than strategy – strategies are about the means, they are not about the end in themselves. We help companies take a stand for something that truly matters


Create your culture.

We help leaders design, build and sustain the culture required to do the work they want to achieve. We focus on uncomplicating the complicated, and putting fun back into the workplace


Woo clients.

A great company not only sustains itself, but it provides continuing evidence of the value of its existence.  It not only makes products and provides services that people want but it does so in a way that makes people glad that this particular company has come into existence



The role of business is changing – businesses need to step up and help solve societal issues in order for their workforce, communities and environment to thrive and in turn for their business to be sustainable. We connect companies to causes that align with their purpose and the problems they are trying to solve
