Clay Hebert is a marketing and branding strategist, speaker, and storyteller. He loves words and stories...and he believes we make marketing harder than it needs to be.
For a decade, Clay led teams at Accenture, the world’s largest consulting firm, solving complex problems for global Fortune 500 companies. He left to attend the most selective MBA program in the country...he was one of only 9 people to learn directly from marketing expert Seth Godin for six months. Clay’s work has been profiled in the books Tools of Titans by Tim Ferriss, Entrepreneurial You by Dorie Clark, and Deep Work by Cal Newport. He’s helped over 2000 projects raise over $100 million total via crowdfunding. Forbes called him “one of the next generation of business and media influencers” and he was recently named one of Entrepreneur Magazine's 50 Most Daring Entrepreneurs...along with Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk.
Clay believes marketing is about understanding how your customers want to feel...and then giving them stories and products and services that help them feel that way. Word of mouth is about those stories being portable and easy to spread. As Brand Wizard for A&Co, Clay helps our clients figure out the best version of their story, and then how and where to tell it.

Cheryl is a designer, stylist and writer whose background in international studies has given her an immersive study of people and the way groups work and think.
In her early 20s, she lived in the Dominican Republic and Costa Rica, studying and working with a local school and assisted migrant populations within the greater Seattle region.
When she transitioned to the design world, her empathic skillset and innate creative ability have allowed her to produce experiences and craft meaningful stories that excite audiences of all types.
She has worked with clients across a broad range of industries, but is passionate about businesses and organizations that believe all stakeholders should be treated with respect and dignity, particularly the communities and natural environments they operate within and affect.
Hailing from Seattle, she speaks (fairly) fluent Spanish and regards travel and seeking out new experiences as key to helping us become more compassionate and innovative human beings.
