AWC operates from the principle that integrity is essential in business relationships, as it is in life. This applies to all aspects of a business relationship, from the initial contact to the conclusion of a contract. As a part of this commitment, AWC makes every effort to ensure that written product is accurate when submitted and is happy to offer substantiation of its conclusions to its clients.
Many of AWC’s clients choose to execute non-disclosure agreements, which AWC honors strictly. This is why there are no logos of clients on the site. AWC offers confidential, honest advice about a client’s challenges; in return, that advice is better and more useful the more information a client or prospective client is able to disclose about the nature of the issue or matter under discussion.
AWC will describe the type of work done in general terms and the industry in which a client operate but will not reveal client names or information without prior authorization. You can be sure that your discussions are safe with AWC.
The foundation of a good consulting relationship is mutual trust. Consulting relationships work best when both parties are open with each other about goals, concerns, interests, deadlines, and other matters essential to the relationship, which enables the parties to brainstorm, think outside the box, and consider novel ideas in an open discussion. To this end, AWC finds that consulting relationships work best when financial issues are discussed up front, at the beginning of work, and are generally set on a retainer or project basis, so that neither side needs to worry about timekeeping issues.
AWC donates a percentage of revenues to charitable organizations working in such fields as humanitarian assistance, international development, the environment, children and families, and education. In addition, AWC has undertaken a number of pro bono projects in the areas of writing and editing for non-profit organizations.
