Natasha Chetty

WHO I AM

I founded Bellwether Strategies with one goal in mind: to help professionals build their practices in a smarter, more effective way.

I’ve worked exclusively with professional service organizations for more than 15 years.  My clients include private firms, individual professionals, public institutions and non-profit professional associations.

I grew up in Saskatchewan, and went to university in Saskatoon where I earned a B.A. in anthropology (which is surprisingly useful when observing organizational culture). I earned an honours diploma in public relations at the B.C. Institute of Technology and have completed major certifications in my field, including two programs from the Reputation Institute  and one to become a certified legal project management coach.

How I Work

Clients hire me for specific projects. My role is to help you reach the point where your marketing, reputation building and related strategies become sustainable, using the resources and training we develop together.

I am practical. I will start small, learn your goals and determine what ‘fits’. I will not advise you to invest in anything that isn’t systematic, actionable or suitable to your purposes. If you want glamour and glossy ads, you’re on the wrong website. If you want relevant solutions that bring value to your clients, stay here.

I understand that my clients need evidence. Much of my work is research-based. I often conduct primary and secondary research for client projects. It’s important that you make strategic decisions and investments based on information that is grounded in reality (i.e. facts).

I work with clients who are genuinely interested in improving their practices. I am forthright about this. You don’t need to change who you are. But you might need to adjust the way things have always been done. The good news is that I’ll try to make it as easy for you and your organization as possible.

Recent Professional Activities

“Natasha is invaluable to our firm. She understands our firm culture and facilitates strategies that are specific to it. She’s very involved with our partners, associates and staff, guiding us to build our practices and challenging us to move slightly out of our comfort zones (but in a good way!). As a managing partner, I really appreciate her support!”
