emerson consulting group, inc. helps business professionals, independent consultants, and organizations become thoughtleaders in their respective fields.

We do this by helping our clients get their leading-edge ideas seen and heard–in relevant journals and magazines, books, radio and podcast appearances, and speaking engagements.

Thoughtleading Strategy
Refine your ideas, pitch them to the right people, and make sure your published work makes maximum impact. We can help!

Publishing Books
It’s time for a book by YOU! Whether you're looking for a commercial publisher, thinking of self-publishing, or aren't sure, we'll help you weigh your options, put together a plan and work with you to make your book a reality.
Editorial Support
Need some editing help? Have an idea but wish you had a sounding board? We're there for you every step of the way.

John Guaspari No avatar Employee Engagement Expert
" The Emerson team has been first-rate on all counts. As a result of the excellent work done by Ken and Elena, I had a choice of three publishers for my latest book. This gave me the luxury of choosing the one that was best-aligned with my goals and gave me the strongest sense that I would be a true partner to them as opposed to “yet another author. "

" Visibility solves TONS of problems for us. The more we’re seen, the more believable we are. The more we’re seen, the greater credibility we have. The more we’re seen, the LESS we need to pursue them and the MORE they pursue us… it eliminates or reduces sales resistance... "

" Ken, without your support and expert advice, Catalytic Management would not have achieved such terrific growth. Every article solidified our reputation, garnered national speaking opportunities or generated leads. Credibility is everything to a consulting firm and your work to establish me as a thought leader has been invaluable. Not only is your support indispensible to our marketing efforts but you make it fun and painless. "

" Thank you so much for your wisdom, insight and support during this process of seeking a publisher. Without your guidance, I would never have sealed the deal! Not only did you negotiate well on my behalf, but you understood the value of finding the right partner who would be the best fit for my long term goals. I couldn’t have done it without you. "

Lewis Green No avatar Founder/CEO - L&G Business Solutions
" I hired Ken Lizotte to represent me and find a publisher for my fifth book “How to Grow a Business by Putting People First” (originally published as “Lead with Your Heart”). Ken came highly recommended by others who had hired him to help with their publishing and thought leader efforts. Although this was my fifth book and I had once earned a living as a free-lance writer, Ken’s sage advice made both my book and magazine articles better before he found a publishing outlet for them. If you strive to be a thought leader, I highly recommend you to hire Ken and his team. "

Michael Shenkman, PhD No avatar Founder, President - Arch of Leadership, Professional Mentoring
" I have worked with Ken for nearly a decade. He is, without a doubt, my strategist in chief for my marketing communications strategy. I can’t count the number of ways he has opened my thinking to new approaches, new technologies and media for publishing, promotion and customer service. He does it all with modesty, which I really appreciate. I know when we meet or talk that something good, interesting, thoughtful and productive will ensue. Even though I am located in New Mexico, 2,500 miles away, his service is not in the least diminished. He is worth every penny I have spent with him and his team. Thanks, Ken. "
