How We Serve Our Clients

Coaching, Advisory Consulting and Technical Solutions For Sustainability Leaders


Creekbank Associates offers three types of service to our valued clients. Our Coaching services are designed to empower sustainability leaders to achieve their most important goals. We guide sustainability leaders to be even more successful than they’ve ever been in the past. Our Coaching services are helmed by Creekbank Associates’ CEO and founder, Jody Bickel. Jody has spent the last 25 years working hand-in-hand with some of the best sustainability leaders in the world. She’s learned a lot of lessons, many of which she shares through the Sustainability Leader Insights newsletter.

Through our work with sustainability leaders, we identify and develop the best possible outcomes for enhancing their organization’s Social License to Operate.

Our Strategic Advisory Consulting provides targeted consulting engagement designed to deliver time-sensitive strategic advisory insights to inform and guide internal decision-making on pivotal issues. These engagements typically last from 6-12 months, but the impact will often last for decades or longer.

We offer Technical services across a wide array of disciplines. We bring hard-to-find expertise to the table to solve complex technical problems in the environmental services space. Our Team of experts is unrivaled in their core competencies (see Some of Our Skills Below).

Most of our Coaching services are offered on an annual basis. We find that we have our greatest impact when we have one year to work with sustainability leaders. Our Technical services are usually acquired on a project basis. Each of our services usually begin with a no-obligation discovery session so we can recommend the best-fit services to each client.
