SBrand is the right team to work collaboratively with stakeholders, partners, community groups, board members, and staff because we know how to ask the right questions, framed in the right way, with the right people in the room (the R3 principle). Formed in 2011 by Sheryl Trent, SBrand Solutions has a unique expertise in working with clients to solve problems and “fill in the blanks”.

This is what makes us different: We have a unique perspective on creating consensus-based solutions, and an innovative (and proven) method of stakeholder and community engagement. Driven by our expert professional facilitation, the information and feedback we gather will create a clear path for the future. We use a strategic framework and proven methodology that not just encourages but requires diversity, equity, and inclusivity to get the best result.
