To our friends and clients
From August 2016 to January 2017, we will be on a sabbatical. Rather than a career "break," we believe a sabbatical is an integral part of a career path. We look forward to the results of investing in a time of reflection, creativity and casting vision. Follow our journey through our blog: Fong Sabbatical.
About Fong Strategic Consulting LLC
Fong Strategic Consulting LLC (FSC) was founded in 2008 by Christian and Jenelle Fong as a mission driven company, to work with leaders within both the private and public sector to solve difficult problems facing communities and industries. Jenelle Fong leads our practice with faith-based groups. Our objectives:
- Obtain Funding for businesses and organizations to achieve their missions. Great ideas often need capital partners to come alive and impact communities.
- Remove Obstacles that create complexity where simplicity would reduce costs and open markets. Through Fong Strategic Consulting LLC, Christian Fong has served in interim executive roles for several organizations.
- Connect Leaders to other leaders within their industries and communities, and work to find consensus. When leaders work in unity, more can be achieved.
- Focus on Social Organizations in both the for-profit and non-profit sectors. We believe that social objectives can, and should, drive strategy. And strategy is required to achieve those social objectives.
