Social Business Consulting Group (Sobizco) Changes The Way Executives Look At Social Media

Seventeen Social Media Strategists Unite To Form The World’s Largest Social Media Consulting Firm.

Palo Alto, CA,  March 14  Today, the Social Media Consulting Group (Sobizco), founded by a team of 17 social media strategists from the U.S., Europe, and Asia Pacific, announced the launch of its consulting practice. All founding partners and an additional 20 social media consultants practice a unified methodology, as taught by the Social Media Academy. Different members of this global team have been working together for several years on diverse corporate social media consulting engagements and are now combining their experience to deliver enterprise-level social business consulting services worldwide.”

The firm commences operations with a team of approximately 80 consultants, ending today’s social media dilemma where tens of thousands of social media consultants don’t speak “enterprise” and the traditional business consultants don’t speak “social media”.  The Social Business Consulting Group focuses on social media audits, strategy development, engagement planning, solution implementation and strategy execution services. Each founding partner has profound management experience from companies such as BHP, Dell, Franklin Tempelton, Fujitsu, GE, IBM, Oracle, Rockwell, Southwest Airlines, Sun Microsystems, Symantec, Synnex, and Western Union.

“Once an executive decides to transform their organization into a more engaging company, attracting more customers through advocacy and user-generated content, those leaders are quickly challenged to develop a strategy that works not only for hundreds of managers and thousands of employees, but also for possibly millions of customers. The Social Media Consulting Group offers a complete series of tried and tested methods, models and frameworks to tackle large and complex projects including the most challenging of situations facing businesses” states co-founder Axel Schultze.

“Social media has provided enormous economic benefits to businesses around the world including growth in market share, reduction in product launch cost, reduction in support costs, increased brand reputation, improved customer experience models, higher ROI on marketing expenditure, along with faster and more precise insights into market trends in B2B as well as B2C situations” explained co-founder Wendy Soucie.

The group is already working with progressive clients including SAP, EMC, Qwest, Oracle, which has necessitated the need for a much larger social media consulting organization that is capable and skilled to tackle global projects.


The Social Business Consulting Group is a global management consulting firm with focus on social media. The firm’s purpose is to help executives create an exceptional competitive advantage by leveraging social media. The strategy consulting focuses on a holistic approach where all market facing departments leverage social media to create a mutually beneficial business relationship with the constituencies of their respective ecosystem.

Social Business Consulting Group is considered a thought leader in applying social media in large corporations. The consultants help business leaders and their teams to make strategic business decision and create measurable economic success.
