Consulting Services

Dr. Cedric Alford, MBA, helps businesses, venture capitalists, investors, organizations, and entrepreneurs resolve issues that have manifested as blockers to organizational success. We start with your strategic priorities and offer experiential advice on addressing the issues.

Leveraging decades of entrepreneurial, advisory, and global business leadership experience, we have a history of providing second-to-none and differentiated advice that could only come from a combination of academic and direct experiences.

Dr. Alford previously served as a faculty lead for the Jack Welch Management Institute, leveraging Jack’s leadership, business, and strategy principles that made GE one of the world’s most successful organizations. Combining that perspective with Dr. Alford’s academic research and professorships across multiple colleges and universities, Dr. Alford provides high-value services with equally high returns.

Dr. Alford specializes in:

  • Leadership Development Consulting
  • DEI Consulting
  • Talent Developing
  • Business and Startup Consulting
  • Organizational Consulting
  • Non-Profit and Church Excellence Consulting

Dr. Alford has significant experience working with the government, private sector, entrepreneurs, small businesses, and publicly-traded organizations on market research and special projects. Most organizations have highly talented team members with minimal experience addressing ad hoc projects beyond their core competence. Leaders in these organizations need a partner that will “figure it out” without much direction. Dr. Alford has repeatedly filled this gap for many organizations, investors, and individuals.
