October 5, 2015
October 9th is an important anniversary for The Dilenschneider Group—it marks the start of our 25th year in business.
We are proud of what the Firm has accomplished, and we value more than we can say the friendships and relationships we have developed with men and women like you.
When we opened the doors in 1991, it was our goal to advance the commonweal and to make life better for all we came in contact with. We have done this by providing a level of advice and support and a range of connections and networking for our clients that is second to none.
We have always been guided by a desire to give back, and with that in mind, have sought to use our resources to make real and positive contributions. We continue to sponsor a series of public lectures on the topic of "civility," featuring some of America’s pre-eminent thinkers. We have done this for the past three years and are doing it again in the coming year because we believe a decent, progressive society starts with civility.
We continue to publish our biannual Trend Reports to give clients and friends of the Firm a look over the horizon at coming trends and developments, and judging by the volume of positive responses we receive, the Reports keep fulfilling their mission.
We have commissioned a series of Red Books that offer fresh perspectives into some of the key social and managerial issues facing business enterprises. We also send out Occasional Papers that offer unique insights into issues of special importance.
And we recently launched a series of reports written by an American living and studying in China, Zak Dychtwald, that provide a first-hand look at the social and historical dynamics of that still little-understood economic super-power.
All our Firm’s efforts are based on a single underlying principle: In an age when nearly everyone is technologically engaged, it has never been more important to acknowledge the importance of enduring, community-building values.
We know we have delivered value to our clients. Expect us to continue to do that and to raise still higher the standards that have always marked our Firm.
