Our Approach to
Management Consulting

Our business consulting and strategy implementation services have far-reaching, sustainable effects on your growth objectives. We unlock your potential through custom, sustainable solutions to meet your specific needs by aligning your team on your path forward.


In 2005 David Poirier, CEO, founded The Poirier Group (TPG) to make a meaningful difference as a “values-based” boutique management consulting firm 

After years of leading national and international organizations at the c-suite level, David gained significant exposure to common business challenges many companies face. He believed he could make a meaningful impact on organizations across industries by successfully implementing and integrating sustainable change.

Having experienced consultants from the other side of the desk, David knew there was a better approach to management consulting than cookie-cutter solutions. Thus, The Poirier Group was born (est. 2005).

Today, The Poirier Group is one of the top Boutique Consulting firms in North America, evidenced by numerous awards in Consulting Services, Corporate Culture and Corporate Social Responsibility. TPG has grown to become one of the most trusted business management consulting firms in Toronto.

The principles upon which TPG was founded stand true today, offering a trusting and meaningful consulting experience for our clients by ensuring our team brings a solid balance between the right skills, experience, and approach, along with behaviours that exemplify our values.

We become a specialized extension of your team rather than an external management consulting firm, working with you to create tailored solutions with your unique business challenges in mind. This tailored approach sets us apart from other corporate strategy firms.

Over the duration of each project, we regularly collaborate with key stakeholders to validate findings, pain points, themes and other influences that have impacted the current state of your business. We work with your team to strategize on the best solutions that align with your company’s goals and culture. We address behavioural influences and existing roadblocks that impede your progress and work to create consensus to ensure our solutions are sustainable. 


Our strategic management consultants form a mutually beneficial partnership between our team and our client, through open, honest and direct communication as the cornerstone of our approach. We gain your trust early on allowing us to achieve significantly better results, faster. We’ve found that companies who are aligned with the necessary solutions to achieve their objectives are only accomplished when they have input into the process for sustainable change. This tried and true approach has resulted in The Poirier Group becoming one of the top boutique management consulting firms in North America. 


We develop and/or execute your business objectives and discover opportunities for performance improvement by focusing on the integration of your people, technology, process and strategy. We have found that regardless of industry, this methodology applies to the successful execution of all of our services. Applying the right strategy development and approach ensures your business will stay ahead of the competition.

Our business management consulting services demonstrate what we do, how we engage with our clients and how we deliver on their objectives.

The Poirier Group is an award-winning boutique management consulting firm in Toronto, Canada

For each engagement, we build a team which has the practical experience, education, and technical skills to best tackle your project and find the solutions you are looking for. This process allows us to tailor our management consultant services and create a custom strategy just for you – ensuring we achieve the best possible results for all our clients. Choosing right strategic management consultant firms can make all the difference. 

It appears as if we can do everything for everybody – how can we do this? We draw from senior expertise from contracted professionals and Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) for support in areas that we do not internally have that expertise. They can be a great addition to a project team, and their support allows TPG’s corporate strategy consulting to really reach its full potential as one of the top boutique consulting firms in Toronto. In other words, we don’t hesitate to expand our project team to ensure your needs are met. That’s how we can cover as many industries as we do. While other firms focus on one or two verticals, we’ve become one of the top boutique management consulting firms in Toronto by being willing to take on, and succeed in, multiple industries.


We do not claim a project is “done” until the results we promised are achieved and sustainable. We will work tirelessly to do whatever it takes to make sure our clients are completely satisfied. Meeting our client’s goals is always the objective, and our work processes and client communications strategies reflect this; from the top to the bottom of our organization. With our malleable and individually tailored business consulting services strategies, our clients quickly learn that choosing TPG was the right choice. Our past clients return with new opportunities because they trust us to deliver true value, reliable outcomes and an exceptional working experience.

Our re-engagement rate speaks volumes and reinforces that we are delivering on our reputation as one of the industry-leading boutique Toronto management consulting firms. We’ve come to expect at the end of each project, that our clients will say:

  • We are happy to refer you
  • You have exceeded our expectations
  • You are not like other management consulting firms and corporate strategy firms we have worked with
