A BRIEF HISTORY
Beckmann Collaborative, LLC began in May of 2013 with marketing strategist and founder, Candice DeRiso (Beckmann). Small business owners need support in the increasingly competitive market that has shifted to being more digital than traditional. Candice began copywriting and editing for companies and non-profit organizations - leveraging her growing interest in SEO (Search Engine Optimization).
During the first 3 years of business, people took note of Candice's professionalism and the growing list of collaborative partners offering extra value to clients.
In 2015, the apprentice program was launched. This program sought to offer a space for young professionals looking to deepen their skills while getting paid to do real client work. It was a grand experiment that may have been ahead of its time, so after 18 months the program was put on hold.
After business evaluation in late 2017, the decision was made to expand the business focus from one-to-one consulting to include professional development training. After several speaking engagements and client training workshops, Candice saw the bigger opportunity for the future of Beckmann Collaborative. Corporate Training and Professional Development became the updated mission of the business, and Strategy Consulting will slowly shift into the premium product.
