What a fantastic couple of years! Thanks to the support of YOU—clients, consultants, Apiary alums; and the many individuals who’ve helped shape the vision of the Apiary collective, we are thriving!
Over the past two years, we’ve been driving impressive results for dozens of clients while developing meaningful working relationships.
The Apiary brand is two years old, but the Apiary collective began forming in late 2013 when Founder Karen Amundson made the exciting decision to travel the world while independent consulting part-time.
Through the generous referrals of many of you reading this, Karen’s consulting practice began growing and she quickly realized:
As a result, in July of 2015, the Apiary Digital collective was born (See sidebar, “Apiary’s Collective Model”).
Right from the start, it has been a priority to fill the Apiary collective with high-caliber talent coming from the best brands in digital, like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google, and Microsoft. Many of our consultants have 8-15 years of experience.
We are proud to have a team of consultants who are professionally driven and attracted to working at Apiary because of its lifestyle-friendly model. We think of our consultants the way we think of our clients: If we don’t provide an excellent consulting experience, they will get work somewhere else because talent of this caliber is in high-demand. Similarly, consultants know they need to prove their value-added by moving the needle for our clients. This synergistic relationship creates a high level of quality. It’s a win-win for clients and consultants alike!
Apiary has seen incredible organic growth through referrals by respected industry colleagues. We consider these referrals “votes” from authoritative sources—like a search engine might rank high-quality backlinks. Without our current and former clients and consultants, and the support of early adopters, there would be no Apiary. Here’s to many more years of successful partnership between members of the Apiary collective and our clients!
