The Folding Chair Group was formed to assist organizations in accelerating their connection to their beneficiaries or customers and providing even more value to them. Why folding chairs you may ask?
In 1968, Shirley Chisholm became the first black woman elected to the United States Congress. She had been known for saying, ‘if they don’t give you a seat at the table, bring a folding chair’. While The Folding Chair Group’s founder is neither black, nor a politician, she recognized the very real power in that simple statement. The power of recognizing that you don’t have to be invited to a table to provide value. That, often, the power in changing the world for the better is picking yourself and relentlessly asking how you can provide value to the table you want to be at.
The Folding Chair Group works with organizations who exist to provide real and meaningful value. These organizations are often at a stage where they need an outside perspective to help them earn new customers and gain more clarity on the specific value they are providing to them. We help organizations find and then pull up a folding chair to the table their beneficiaries / customers are at so that they can first understand them and then provide them with extraordinary value.
