NineQ is a consulting and education company specializing in energetic intelligence training and will be seeking MBA student’s expertise and fresh marketing ideas for the organization to grow within the professional and organizational consulting industry. MBA students enrolled in Marketing 682 will develop a one-year communication plan and marketing strategy for NineQ.
“We are very excited to partner with NineQ. Through this project, not only will our students be able to interface with successful and purpose driven alumni, but they will be working on a business that supports the Graziadio “Best for the World Leader” mission," stated Lynda Palmer, E2B Program Director and Practitioner Faculty of Marketing, Pepperdine Graziadio Business School.
NineQ was founded in 2018 by Graziadio Presidents and Key Executives (PKE) MBA graduates, Dr. Laura Ciel (MBA ‘20) and William Poett (MBA ‘20). The launch of NineQ was the subject of both Poett and Dr. Ciel’s capstone projects in the Graziadio PKE MBA program. Poett and Dr. Ciel launched their company based on the systematic process they developed and tested for bringing transformational strategies to forward thinking business leaders and their organizations. The training and processes of NineQ can have a huge impact on the lives of leaders and their teams. Poett and Dr.Ciel seek to connect with organizations that will embrace, embody, and benefit from their training and consulting.
