Ready for business as UN-usual? Is your organization poised to become a game-changing leader in your sector – a new breed of business? Strandberg Consulting can guide your company to realize transformational opportunities.

After two decades of experimentation, corporate social responsibility has become an established business practice. But company leaders and CSR practitioners acknowledge they need to go further. They realize companies can’t become sustainable on their own, they need to set goals beyond their operations and the foreseeable future – even when the solutions don’t yet exist – in order to achieve long-term business success. Far-sighted managers recognize and act on emerging environmental, social and economic risks and opportunities that will affect the operating context of their business. They envision and catalyze a future in which their company is harnessing all of its assets, resources, people, capital, influence, relationships and scale to accelerate positive business and social growth.

These are social purpose and transformational companies, a new breed of business.

Coro has developed tools, roadmaps, the business case and guidance for becoming a social purpose, transformational company. She advises boards, managers, CSR professionals, and community investment practitioners on these innovative business models and develops strategies to achieve them.

  • Coro Strandberg's leadership in the development of The Transformational Company was instrumental in framing CBSR’s thought leadership platform. Coro is an incredibly focused and purpose-driven professional who makes the most of every minute you have together.
