Love Your AV Business Again.

Define success, take action, and transform your future with The Stimson Group.


Since 2006, Tom Stimson, owner of The Stimson Grouphas worked with over two hundred AV companies and organizations on business strategy, process, marketing, and sales. By focusing on actionable strategies to achieve intentional success, The Stimson Group makes it possible move from where you are to where you want to be.


To succeed intentionally, we need remove the noise that permeates most business thinking. By defining what 'success' means to you, we can create simple, actionable strategies that take your business from where it is now to where you want it to be.


Leaders don’t always recognize how poorly their expectations are understood. To transform your team, you must transform expectations. We can help you identify clear goals, crises, or opportunities; emphasize solutions while de-emphasizing thae obstacles; & measure progress while rewarding contributors.


Teams, clients, and suppliers can cause all sorts of frustrations for owners because they are outside of their control. We help you identify the internal constraints to getting things done and teach owners how to reclaim the role they want in their businesses, how to have fun again, and how to rekindle the romance with their entrepreneurial spirit.


When you can see your company as something that can help you achieve whatever matters most to you, work becomes fun again, challenges become opportunities, and mistakes become lessons. We can help you describe your ideal future and define success in and on your own terms (and not someone else’s).

His ability to dig into the details of a company’s processes and analyze how they affect outcomes is superb. But his greatest strength is being able to give you real life solutions to those issues that create results.”

“It took some convincing, but I had to let go of long-held beliefs about operations in particular. It all seems so clear now – I wish we had done this years ago.”
