The virtual strategy session is ideal for professionals working on a substantial goal (building your brand as a thought leader, writing and marketing a book, taking your coaching or consulting practice to the next level, etc.) who would like to develop a clear action plan for the next 12 months.
You'll start with a 'pre-work' assignment, identifying the top goals and outcomes you'd like from the session. I'll review and analyze your materials and online assets, to understand your business and how your brand is showing up. Then, we’ll work together in an intensive virtual session (roughly 2 1/2 hours), developing a precise, step-by-step action plan for the next year.
I'll share my best insights to help bring you clarity about what to do, when to do it, and how to maximize your efforts to get the best and fastest results. You'll leave with a clear understanding of next steps and where to find the greatest ROI when it comes to your business and brand-building. If you want to move forward effectively and don't want to waste time with trial and error, this is a great option.
Your strategy session includes lifetime membership in my Recognized Expert course and community, which enables you to receive ongoing professional development, as well as support from a cadre of knowledgeable and generous colleagues.
The Virtual Strategy Session costs $8000.
If you think you could benefit from an intensive session where we focus 1-1 on sharpening your brand, enhancing your status as a recognized authority, and taking you to the next level professionally, contact me with questions or to sign up. I look forward to collaborating.
Strategy Session Testimonials
Engaging Dorie Clark to conduct an individual strategy session for my personal brand is one of the smartest business decisions I’ve ever made. With her keen insights and creativity, she quickly identified my brand’s points of difference and provided me with a viable, on-point roadmap to bring that expert platform to life. In five months, I’ve used her guidance to launch a new website, bolster my social media presence, publish ten articles and diligently make progress on my book. Would highly recommend her to anyone who is ready to claim the next-level success they deserve.

My time with Dorie was extraordinarily helpful, in order to give me the direction that I need to clarify focus in my practice, and execute and scale at a much faster rate. Getting an outside perspective, not only on my business, but on my industry, created an action plan that is unparalleled, even by coaches that niche in my industry.

I had the unique privilege of working with Dorie over a strategy session related to my executive coaching practice. Because I spend everyday coaching others, it was a gratifying experience having someone who I admire and respect so much provide me feedback, insightful observations and a different lens from which to view my work. While Dorie is one of the most prolific speakers and writers out there in business and leadership, she stands apart in my experience from other highly successful experts due to her genuine desire to share everything she knows with the utmost generosity. She also proves that rewards come from doing the work no matter what and despite her well-deserved success, she is the most down-to-earth colleague and friend one could have. I'm grateful to have met and worked with Dorie and will continue to seek her counsel.

Author, Speaker, CEO Double Forte
Dorie Clark’s guidance provided me with incredible value in growing my consultancy, which started off as a simple blog in 2014, and has since grown into a robust international practice, with licensed video content (a part of my consultancy pulled right out of Entrepreneurial You). As a result of our ongoing work, I am now starting a number of new initiatives, which will have a major impact on both the growth of my business as well as strengthening existing offerings. And it’s not a ‘one-off’ experience, as Dorie and I continue to follow up on the work we have started, as well as launching new projects. Speaking both personally and professionally, Dorie is an absolute pleasure to work with, and provides advice and counsel that is not the ’tick the box’ direction that we see so often in the crowded and often noisy field of 'self-improvement.'
I would highly recommend it if you get the opportunity to work with Dorie, if you're looking for practical advice and ways to stand out, grow your business, or redefine your brand. I found the strategy session incredibly valuable.

The strategy session I had with Dorie was nothing short of game changing. She helped me release some of the ideas and plans I had that were “too small,” challenged me to think bigger, and collaborated with me to generate a new strategy that was way more interesting and of greater service to my clients. I feel confident that she saved me years of trial and error. As an entrepreneur, it is impossible to put a price tag on the value of better ideas, fresh strategies, and saved time. Thank you, Dorie!
