Our bright clients

Before working with Ascendis, our company focused on the product and had very little vision of the customer experience and the benefits a branding strategy would have on financial results. Not having a uniform vision of our brand, meant our efforts were not aligned, which had a direct impact on our results.

We worked closely with Ascendis to build a branding strategy and shared vision of the customer experience. For a manufacturing company, working around the brand can seem long and theoretical. Ascendis made the process simple, fun, and above all, very concrete, which made getting everyone's involvement all the easier.

The Ascendis team is efficient, experienced and brings together friendly, professional people with whom it is pleasant to work. They helped us align our team in one direction very quickly. Their process is fast and completely eliminates "cloud shoveling". Our company is now even more of a winner, thanks to a clear, concrete brand strategy, and a plan of action to follow that we use in our daily lives to maintain the alignment of all members of our team. Today, our brand is taking shape and we are seeing the benefits to all, every day.

Philippe Marchesseault, BESTAR

Vice-Président marketing et stratégie numérique

I had the chance to work with Ascendis on our rebranding strategy at Solotech, a global leader in audiovisual and entertainment technology. From marketing research to positioning strategy, from ideation to visual creation, our journey culminated with the launch of a renewed and dynamic brand image. The Ascendis team was an outstanding partner, a key stakeholder for several months. Their valuable advice combined with the efforts of our growing internal team allowed us to complete this enormous project in less than 12 months! "Simply spectacular", to use the slogan that now accompanies Solotech around the world.

Christine Latour, SOLOTECH
Vice-President, Marketing and Communications

We began our adventure with Ascendis as part of an organizational alignment of our corporate services. Since then, we’ve continued to work with them on our structure and organizational development in order to plan our succession and implement best practices in governance.

The experts at Ascendis support us in a concerted way and we feel looked after. We appreciate the concrete solutions that they come up with to contribute to the evolution of our company and the development of our people. We have always felt that the Ascendis team was fully committed to guiding us through the many facets of our growth.

Michel Gingras, STGM – St-Gelais Montminy + Associés S.E.N.C.R.L.
Principal – Architect

In 2015, we had the privilege of working with Ascendis on an initial strategic plan for Mondou. Their rigorous approach helped our management team identify our priorities and engage our people. In 2017, the Ascendis team also helped us set up a joint venture and define our vertical integration strategy in collaboration with our partner. Both projects were very successful.

Martin Deschênes, Groupe Legault
CEO

To create a strategic plan, it takes intelligence, culture and I would even say a certain artistic sensibility.

It requires the participation of all internal and external stakeholders, as well as rigorous support from people who ask the right questions. No matter how well we think we know our organization, nothing beats an outsider’s perspective, which can sometimes be incisive, to shed light on a strategic approach. If it is done with tact and competence, it forces us to improve ourselves.
