The service sector clients we assist operate in three fields: the public sector (government at the federal, state and local levels); the private sector (banking, insurance, retailing, hospitality, etc.); and non-governmental organizations (NGOs), aka non-profit sector.
Of course, service sector organizations can be identified in any number of areas that we provide services to. Some examples that spring to mind would include: healthcare clients encompassing hospitals, nursing unions and professional membership organizations (medical societies); pharmacology non-profit organizations representing pharmacists and trade lobbying groups advocating for the pharmaceutical manufacturing sector; statistical societies representing university professors and government bodies employing statisticians. We are well versed in the handling of overlapping jurisdictions and identifying the particular technical requirements of multi-sector and multi-audience assignments.
