OUR PARTNERS SAY
“L. Tia Blount, previously CPDC’s Chief of Strategy, led the organization through a well-organized and effective five-year strategic planning process which involved the senior and strategy teams as well as the Board of Directors. The final products were an impactful plan, quarterly progress reports on the various plan elements, increased funding and support for the plan, and regular partnership engagement.”
J. Michael Pitchford, President and CEO

“L. Tia served as project manager for the due diligence phase of the CPDC-Enterprise merger. She developed and implemented a comprehensive strategy including processes, systems, and timelines to manage all the interdependent aspects of the corporate merger. Her key accomplishment was planning, organizing, and accelerating a 60-day merger due diligence process that would typically occur over 6-12 months. Her leadership kept the team on track.”
Lorraine Gordon, VP Human Resources

She has a wealth of knowledge, skill and experience upon which to draw. I personally have referred to her work over and over again.”

“L. Tia’s work at IPM helped shape the successful branding of the first efficacy trial of a vaginal ring for HIV prevention, now under regulatory review. She developed clear and effective branding guidelines, messaging, risk management protocols, a clinical trial portal, and a range of research literacy tools that supported trial recruitment and retention with great results. Tia is a skilled strategist, writer and creative communications professional who approaches projects with energy and vision, and sees them to success.”

"Before partnering with Saving Solutions, ASATS, Inc. was operating with an outdated website and was relying solely on word of mouth to increase sales. Thanks to you, we now have a stronger foundation for our business development and outreach. Your hard work and dedication in building our new website; strengthening my personal LinkedIn profile and creating tools to support client outreach has made us more effective in guiding clients through the security and training services we offer and has given us a more professional image to match the service we strive to provide."

"I own a small landscaping business and had been trying for about a year to land a commercial contract. I struggled to find the words to express what my company was capable of delivering and lacked a visual identity to accompany those words. I engaged Saving Solutions to create an arsenal of products ranging from a logo, company trailer design, a simple website I could manage, and a professional flyer. Saving Solutions also helped with a proposal template that included dynamic language that described my services, capabilities and my company's competitive advantage. Within three months of using the tools created by Saving Solutions, I signed my first commercial contract!”
Shawn Winston, Owner
“I’m the owner and creator of the Loo Boos, a line of bath products for children that teaches healthy hygiene habits. I am currently seeking $150K in capital to support with manufacturing and distribution. I commissioned Saving Solutions because I needed a range of services but didn’t know where to begin. They recommended the creation of an investor strategy, which they developed. They were thorough and went beyond the call of duty! Savings Solutions conducted research into over 300+ potential investors. They are now implementing that strategy. I was so impressed with that strategy that they are now developing our marketing strategy.”

"We engaged Saving Solutions to develop a business strategy for DSFA. From the very beginning of the process, we were challenged at the assessment phase to rethink our focus, approach and service offerings. When they finished with our strategy, we had a clear mission and vision; a set of core values that will guide the company and its future decisions; goals, objectives and several tactics to support strategy execution; appropriate calls to action perfectly aligned with key stakeholders and services; as well as several recommendations to guide us with respect to future implications."

We hired Saving Solutions to develop DFS’s 2018 Annual Report. Their solutions team provided project management, interviewing, content development and creative design for this project. The quality of work and attention to detail was amazing!

L. Tia was very organized and responsive throughout the engagement. She helped keep everyone on task by creating weekly reports, action item summaries, meeting agendas, and the like. She wasn't an expert on the topic area (economic policy), but she learned fast -- and, even more impressive, she quickly learned Equitable Growth's internal processes, organizational structure, and mission. She was a huge asset to our organization and the EG 2020 essay book would not exist without her hard work!

Saving Solutions provided risk and brand management support for EAT during a critical time. They were prompt in their reply, offering support at a moment's notice. I would highly recommend their services.

L. Tia and Saving Solutions helped us navigate from an expansive in-person awards ceremony to a pandemic online event with style, creativity and pop! Saving Solutions worked non-stop to ensure event day went as smoothly as possible - and it did! Her professionalism and new and creative approach to our event made for a very memorable evening! Thank you, Tia, for your professionalism, creativity and enthusiasm in helping NVAHA host a memorable 2020 Regional Housing Leaders Ceremony and 15th Anniversary Celebration. We could not have done this without you!

The team at Saving Solutions helped us provide a great virtual awards ceremony for our organization under a tight timeline (3 weeks). They were professional, responsive, and I felt they really cared about us and the end product. I would highly recommend Saving Solutions.
