Britain Bound!

We are excited to announce that our Managing Partner, Sarah Horning, will be traveling to London, England in order to initiate the expansion to the European market. She will be working abroad the last week in March to train and prepare for the opportunity a global market will provide. While in the UK, Sarah will be coaching, training, and researching the aspects of working within the British marketplace. Sarah is thrilled about what this implies for our office. “This new market allows our Atlanta employees not only the chance to explore the world through travel, but also by interacting with other cultures and learning other methods of conducting business outside of American borders.”

This trip is the beginning of an expansion effort that will give our employees the opportunity to learn more about global markets, new cultures, and the ability to work with more clients. We are so excited that we have the benefit of being able to cross international borders and continue our expansion efforts across the globe!

Living the Local Life

Buckhead Business Consulting understands the value of supporting the local businesses in Atlanta. There are countless stores, restaurants, boutiques, and markets that make Atlanta, Georgia unique and appealing. Finding the local gems is half the fun of living in such a vibrant area.

1925249_623620111020570_955592281_nEvery week we have an office night and find a new local hotspot to patron while developing professional relationships amongst our people. In the past, we have had the opportunity to frequent some local restaurants and bars including Ormsby’s RestaurantCorner Tavern, and Bone Garden Mexican Cantina, which happen to be across the street from our office. We also have enjoyed the trivia, music, and flavor that Red Brick Brewing Company and the Atlanta Food Trucks have to offer. Fellini’s is another favorite for excellent pizza after an exciting game of kickball in Memorial Park around the corner. Learning to kickbox at X3 Sports has been one of the more active team nights we have had. We all left excited and ready for more!1462993_588501724532409_1218321782_n (1)

We are always looking for new and entertaining places to visit with our team. Supporting the local businesses is just one of the ways we can give back to the community.  If you have any suggestions for a great team night atmosphere, leave a comment!

Assistant Manager Katie Solsten Transfers to Denver!

Recently, one of our Assistant Managing Partners, Katie Solsten, has been offered the opportunity to transfer to our Denver office in Colorado. She has been with us for quite a while and will be greatly missed, however we are incredibly excited for her and this incredible opportunity to make a difference in her first move outside the state of Georgia. Below are some of her thoughts on her time spent at Buckhead Business Consulting.

“Working at Buckhead Business Consulting for the past two years has developed me professionally and personally in many ways. Coming into the business world, I had no experience in sales, marketing, or management. I kept to myself and was not very outspoken. Since joining the team, I’ve been able to improve my public speaking skills exponentially. I have become stronger in my skills of persuasion and have learned the importance of being one’s self. Most importantly, I’ve learned the value of working for my co-workers to help them meet their goals. All the training at Buckhead Business Consulting, has helped me become a more confident and motivated woman. Training and helping others reach their goals has become one of my greatest strengths and I am so grateful to have been able to learn from the best! I am constantly learning from everyone I come in contact with. Not only do I learn from other Consultants and Managing Partners, but also the business owners and entrepreneurs I meet daily.

Being part of Buckhead Business Consulting has also given me the opportunity to travel the United States for the first time in my life. I can now say I have been to Los Angeles, Dallas, Phoenix, New Orleans, Savannah, and Nashville. These experiences have made me more well-rounded and cultured. I successfully reached my goal of becoming an Assistant Managing Partner at Buckhead Business Consulting and now have even higher goals of helping to give others the same opportunity to grow as a person. Buckhead Business Consulting is not just a place where you have coworkers, but develop long lasting relationships and friends. I am very excited to be able to help out one of my best friends and Managing Partner, Meredith Noulis, in Denver, CO. I know I am going to learn so much from her and everyone in her office.  I am destined to help grow their office and exceed all expectations for growth of the company. This opportunity is going to continue to put me outside of my comfort zone by moving across country for the first time. I’m excited to be able to become more independent and open my eyes to new experiences.”

Buckhead Business Consulting is Expanding!

We are excited to announce that we have relocated! Due to our rapid growth, we have expanded our office in our Midtown location. By the end of 2013, we had hired more people than we had room in our office and had the fortune of being next door to a vacant space that was twice the size of ours. By January we had relocated to the neighboring office which offered extra rooms for conferences & meetings, administrators, and assistant managers. We are incredibly excited about the change and believe it will be an optimistic foreshadowing of what is to come in 2014!

Our Look Back at 2013 and Outlook for 2014

Buckhead Business Consulting is proud to look back at all of our accomplishments from 2013 and share with you our exciting outlook for the new year. 2013 was a milestone year for the company and our expected growth and expansion in 2014 will provide countless more opportunities for our team.

Last year, Managing Partner Sarah Horning received the 50/50 Growth & Sales Award and Managing Partner Jessica Linus received the 20/20 Growth & Sales Award from our clients. Both are huge accomplishments we as a family are very proud to recognize. On top of that, Sarah also received the Campaign Pacesetter Award as one of the top firms for our clients.

The year also saw Meredith Noulis promoted to Managing Partner and lead our expansion team in the Denver, Colorado market. We also promoted Amber French, Katie Solsten and Michael Da Graca Pinto to Assistant Managing Partner and promoted Shirley Rodriguez to Head of Human Resources. We’re excited to see them play a huge role in our 2014 expansion vision.

Of course, our charitable contributions have always been a huge part of the company’s vision and last year we set records for donations with Operation Smile, Dress for Success and the Atlanta Community Food Bank.

This year we’re expecting bigger and better things across the board. Not only do we plan on exceeding our donation totals with all of our current charitable partners, but we will add several new operations as the company continues to grow.

This year, Buckhead Business Consulting will also be enjoying our upgraded office space to support our growth in the Southeast!

In 2014, our goal is become the #1 firm for our clients nationwide and expand into several new markets.

Jessica will be leading an expansion team and Meredith plans on opening new branch offices in the Northwest. We will also continue preliminary scouting toward potential expansion into untapped European markets!

Amber, Katie and Michael are expected to be promoted to Managing Partners in the first quarter of 2014 and will take the lead in extensively expanding our reach and market share in the Southeast. We also have several rising stars in the Atlanta and Denver branches who will soon be our new Assistant Managing Partners in 2014!

We invite everyone to follow us throughout the year as we take on new and exciting ventures with an aim toward surpassing all of the benchmarks set in 2013 and raising the bar higher yet again!
