    • Help Impact Entrepreneurs in Charleston Innovate, and Build & Scale For Profit, Impact Focused Businesses
    • Use Business and Economics to help Eradicate Poverty in specific community segments within Charleston County

Our fees are often 40% less than national consulting firms.

Our experts have addressed, consulted too, and worked with the United Nations, Heads of State, Fortune 500 CEO's, and Private Family Offices. Using the Investment, Management, Entrepreneurship, and Measurement pillars of Impact, we initiate results in terms of revenue, profit, client and employee retention that speak for themselves. 


Because in today's purpose = profit global economy, the design, development, management and communication of an organization's Impact Culture is not only ideal, it's imperative.

What People Are Saying - Testimonials

“Stuart Williams ‎is one of the most remarkable people it has ever been my privilege to meet. His uniqueness is his ability to function on all the different levels of Corporate affairs. From vision to strategy from tactics to operation Stuart is "at home". If you have an opportunity to get Stuart to join your team just grab it. And by the way unlike all other reference replies I have written I am happy to provide the information given above with responsibility. What more can I say.”

Lawrence Bloom, Secretary General, Be Earth Foundation, A United Nations, IGO

"I was incredibly lucky to have Stuart as a mentor while I was an MBA student at the College of Charleston School of Business. I was immediately drawn in by Stuart’s innate charisma and incredible public speaking ability.

Stuart mentored me not only academically, as he is fiercely knowledgeable and experienced in finance and valuation, but he helped me connect with the deeper issues of humanity. He got me to ask the bigger questions about how the business decisions I make today effect the world, and how deeply interconnected business and social issues are.

I will forever be grateful for Stuart’s presence in my life. He is one of the most brilliant, talented individuals I have ever met and I am so fortunate to have him as a mentor".
Kelly Muxworthy, Bain Capital

"Stuart and his team are masters at Impact Leadership and they delivers beneficial, bottom-line results regardless of the difficulty of the business environment. You want them "in your foxhole" as they will always do the right thing the best way possible to "get the job done."


The consummate professionals, they can be counted on to be truthful and accurate, while having the most fun possible".

Nathan Mobley, III, President, Andover Partners

"Stuart Williams has been a voice for change and the disruption of the status quo of the capital markets for well over 20 years. I have found myself a student of his writings, an investor in his businesses and a disciple of his teachings for over 10 years myself. His dedication to the disruption and disintermediation of the impact space is wide spread and his most recent role as impact entrepreneur in residence at the College of Charleston underscores his latest chapter of giving back and educating the next generation of social entrepreneurs.

I am honored to call him a colleague and privileged to call him a friend. His experience in the space and ability to act as a catalyst for convenings is matched only by his vision and willingness to support his community and the next generation. I am an enthusiastic supporter of all of his undertakings personally and professionally."
Jason Britton, Chief Investment Officer & Head Quantitative Thematic Manager, Reflection Analytics
