Strategic Consulting

Seeing the Greater Vision and Knowing all the Steps to Make it Happen

“ALL PROJECTS start with an inspiration, that with  planning and development is turned into a successful reality!

AS A TEAM we  sort out what to achieve and the best way to develop right plan for your project. The goal is to encompass  the possibilities to the best path forward!” Debbie  Cloud


Chris and Debbie’s  approach  is a coherent and cohesive dedication to the dynamic relationships involved in the process.

Since the focus is on integrity, efficiency, authenticity and sustainability, all the holes in a project come to light.  Both Chris and Debbie are systems minded, yet both see things from different perspectives while maintaining an open mind.  Working together pushes each other to the limits to find fresh ways to accomplish set goals.

Clients are challenged with things they have not considered.  In an evolving world requires big picture thinking with great attention to details, while being dynamic as everything keeps any project or business relevant and purposeful.  This is not the best for everyone.  Yet this does work when everyone is on the same page resulting in a real success. 


Chris and Debbie Cloud believe that many current systems today have taken out the common sense and humanity making everything upside down and backwards.  In today’s world there are missing components that are vital to a true success.

The cost of some so-called success models have caused some major problem.  Frustrations grow when Expectations do not meet Reality.  Often today life does not always add up or even make sense.

Chris and Debbie  understand the incoherent pieces and the covert power plays that send things out of wack.  More importantly they know how to bring things back into alignment.   This is the key component needed for success today.

Know that Chris and Debbie’s dedication assures that all the options are considered, stigmatized concerns are faced, and in the end, all the lose ends are put back into place making the best outcome possible.


When the Elephants (the bits being avoided) come into focus, the  options  are mapped, concerns navigated and step by step success comes into play.  Doing this with integrity and authenticity that is both efficient and sustainable is the best of all worlds.


How do you know which is the best?  Most definitely, the one that works!  Thus, the approach is knowing the goals and pulling the team of talented partners together to make success happen.

The old models are out.  Railroading people, taking advantage and being king of the hill is no longer acceptable in today’s standards.   Most of today’s problems stem from these incoherent practices making the undercurrents of crisis seen at ever level of society.

People are looking for real answers.  The world is starting to demand better options.  Some are turning back the clock to regain lost values.  Others embrace the greatest advancements. 

Chris and Debbie use good old fashion values combined with the most innovative solutions.  This allows for positive results that have both longevity and sustainability.  

Being able to Work together to Make things Happen!

That is The CLOUD Difference.
