Our people make us different. Different because we think like business partners, not academic advisors. We share our clients’ aspirations, work to understand their reality, and align our success to their success.

All consultants seem the same. They say the same things. They have similar education and experience; their resumes identical. Their gray suits indistinguishable. And, finally all of them proclaim of one-team attitude to break down silos, emphasizing trust and tolerance for diverging opinions. The points of parity quickly vanishes when clients evaluate their engagement philosophy and consulting approach.

Main people are well-traveled. You must see our passports. Main people are well-seasoned. You must see the hair on our pate. We’ve all worked at so-called top-end agencies and Fortune 100 companies, with big teams and held senior positions. We came together to create Main because we were over the nonsense that came with bigness.

We are a group of cultural anthropologists, neurobiologists, cognitive psychologists who are armed with advanced degrees in business. We break our consulting and training adventures to nurture the next generation of managers and leaders; we are affiliated with premier business schools and teach second-year MBAs courses in strategy, marketing, leadership, and branding.
