The Totem way

Founded in 2016 by Whitney Flynn, Totem Strategy helps clients leverage their core strengths and grow. The path forward involves elevating ideas that stand tall. These totems take many forms: products, programs, brands and stories. They can define a core identity, welcome friends, and signal the way forward into the future. With careful planning, these totems all have one thing in common: the power to foster relationships for a lifetime.

Together with our clients, we are deeply committed to the greater purpose behind our work: doing well by our customers, our communities, and our environment. We take an activist role in promoting sustainable business practices; diverse, equitable and inclusive cultures; and impact-driven partnerships. Our collective future depend on it.

Totem Strategy is a proud member of 1% For the Planet.
