SIMPLICITY IS KEY Our lives are already filled with complex decisions. We don’t want to add to that. We want to make things simpler and quicker. Strategy Cards take a subject or topic, break it down to the bare elements, and then add a simple mix of cards based activities to help you talk through your business challenges.
ACTIVELY LISTEN When you’re actively engaged and listening to your other players business ideas and suggestions you can gain a better understanding of the problem and subsequently formulate better solutions. If you are leading the meeting or session use active listening and jot down notes throughout the meeting enable you to stay engaged and connected as key issues are presented. It also means you’ve got a record of the meeting, and can provide valuable feedback and follow-up questions long after the meeting has concluded.
EASY TO FOLLOW FRAMEWORK Follow the easy to understand, quick to implement instructions which give a basic framework to establish a system for finding solutions. Reuse the cards over and over to apply to different aspects of your business.
FREESTYLE! We’ll start you on your way with some activities and suggestions, but you’ll soon be freestyling and use the cards in your own way. Sometimes as a refresher or reminder, or use in a group setting to get conversation going.
IT’S NOT ALL WRITTEN ON THE CARDS Strategy Cards are not replacement’s to books. They do not cover every detail about your chosen topic. If you need to know more, further reading is recommended.

B is for Brand
When I heard about Strategy Cards I knew I had to buy them immediately. As a Branding Consultant, I’m always looking for new ways to help my clients unlock their creative thinking. The cards provide a fantastic framework for balanced discussion in workshops and what’s more, add that element of fun that’s key to a great session. For me there’s also peace of mind that we cover all areas within a topic. [Ailsa Stinson, Director, B is for Brand]

Moray Business Women
I look after the mentoring scheme for Moray Business Women. We were looking for support materials for our mentors and Sarah’s Strategy cards are the perfect tool. We are delighted with the final product, branded with our logo and colours and the feedback from our mentors is they are finding the cards very helpful. [Bev Alexander, Mentoring and Events, Moray Business Women.]
We can highly recommend Strategy Cards for staff and management training. They spark discussion and get people engaged in the topic. We have often used them for our data protection training sessions, and the technique has always helped our clients, both with planning and generating a deeper understanding of the topic.
