About Us

What is the meaning behind our name?

Webster’s dictionary defines DOMINION as: supreme authority. Over the 20 plus years we have been in business this has been our guiding principal and positioning for our own brand. We are the go to experts and the supreme authority for all things sales, marketing, and fundraising related.

What was the thought process behind the DOMINION logo design?

The DOMINION coloured D is formed from 4 triangles representing the four primary services we have mastered; Branding, Securing Capital, Lead Generation and Business Plan Consulting.

The four triangles are coloured with the four basic colour spectrums that make up all things designed in colour.  Our firm started over 20 years ago exceling at branding and graphic design services, so to reflect our roots, design services is  prominently represented in our logo.

Finally, the coloured triangles are formed in the shape of a D representing D for DOMINION.

If you can tell me who your heroes are, I can tell you how you’re going to turn out. It’s really important to have the right heroes.

– Warren Buffett –

We couldn’t agree more. Normally this portion of the site is dedicated to the resumes of management personnel, extolling the virtues of what they have done. We think it’s more revealing to tell you who we admire, then you can decide if that’s in line with your values.

We’re storytellers, and we’re constantly trying to improve our craft. We read voraciously, study management philosophies, and look outside the traditional management disciplines to other inspirational areas. We believe in constant improvement and sharing; knowledge was never meant to be hoarded. We shamelessly steal on a regular basis from the best minds of our time.

SECURING CAPITAL
At some point, all new or early-stage companies require capital, whether it is to get off the ground or to fund expansion to the next level. How you raise this capital is the single most important decision you can make for your company.
REVENUE & LEAD GENERATION
Lead generation. Two words that are usually said with a sense of urgency. When clients come to us for a lead generation program, they’re usually motivated by external pressures that have exposed an underlying sales issue.
BRANDING, GRAPHIC & WEB DESIGN
A good brand lives in all aspects of an organization: from design to manufacturing, from sales and marketing to customer service. A good brand inspires trust, both inside and outside the organization.
BUSINESS PLANS & MARKETING ANALYSIS
Tradition tells you that you should have a formal business plan – an intricate roadmap that lays out your journey for the next 3-5 years, the timeframe in which most investors want to recover their investment and start seeing a return.
