About

Meet your
strategic partners

iQ 360 is a strategic business consultancy proudly headquartered in Honolulu, Hawaii.

Respect for our host culture and a keen awareness of the urgency of our planet’s climate crisis grounds our thinking and inspires our practical yet strategic approach to problem solving. Our teams in San Francisco, New York, and Washington D.C. give us reach and diverse perspectives that we apply to our work.

Our Code

We deliver bold ideas.

We aren’t afraid to dream big and embrace new ways of thinking. We enjoy stepping out of our comfort zone and encourage our clients to do the same. We execute with a fearless attitude and unwavering determination. The only thing we don’t do is average.

We do things the right way.

Even when it’s the long way, or the hard way. We pride ourselves on producing high-quality work with substance and value, and we won’t cut corners or compromise our integrity to get there. We respect our clients, our work, and the people we impact.

We work without ego.

We collaborate openly and honestly with our team members, our clients, and their peers and partners. We welcome different points of view and accept constructive feedback with grace and gratitude. We appreciate every opportunity to improve our craft, and we have fun doing it.

Our Methodology

To build a sustainable organization, you need more than information; you need strategic, purpose-led communication.

  • We start with questions, taking in a 360-degree view that encompasses business priorities, political realities, competitive dynamics, stakeholder interests, macroeconomic and social trends.
  • We seek root causes, looking beyond the surface to identify underlying problems and risks.
  • We develop a strategy — a practical plan for lasting change.
  • We translate that strategy into a compelling narrative that moves people to act with confidence and purpose.
  • We measure and refine, monitoring and analyzing responses, so that together with our clients, we can learn, adjust and improve.

Proudly Minority- and Woman-Owned

iQ 360 is a minority- and woman-owned business certified by the Western Regional Minority Supplier Development Council and the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council, and is a Women Owned Small Business (WOSB) certified by the U.S. Small Business Administration.

We are gratified to have met the high standards of these certifications that satisfy supplier-diversity requirements for both federal and corporate entities. Partnering with iQ 360, corporations and government entities can add diversity to their supply chains.
