Magate Wildhorse  Consulting Announces US Operations

Canadian Strategy and International Development Consultancy expands to the U.S. with its top-notch organizational effectiveness solutions

Toronto, Canada―Known for relevant and collaborative consulting and execution solutions, the Strategy and International Development Practice announces the launch of its first U.S. operations.

The company brings its top-notch, affordable solutions across the border to New York― its US-based home. Magate Wildhorse offers a full menu of strategy and improvement solutions. Included in its service offer are corporate strategy, *performance (PMM), marketing, trade, private sector development and environment-related solutions.

“Establishing a presence in the US has been on the table for sometime now”, said Meegan Scott, founder of Magate Wildhorse. “The team―including our board and partnering associates are fired-up by the opportunity to serve US-based clients in-market in addition to virtually”.

The company is focused on doing more work in international trade, trade finance, climate finance strategy planning, and related execution support. High on its list of interest are research, design and coaching of teams in network entities who are delivering climate finance strategy solutions.
Among the solutions that the company offers to government departments, international development partners, donors, executives, NGOs and businesses are:

  • market systems development
  • measurement and reporting on results for private sector development programmes
  •  entrepreneur capacity building
  • organizational assessments
  • evaluation
  •  post implementation reviews
  • research
  • training
  • one-on-one strategic execution coaching and consulting
  • program management support
  • and corporate strategy planning.

“Hidden gem services” include the organizational effectiveness and Public-Private Partnership (PPP) combo, designed to help governments to finance critical sectors and key development initiatives that lay stuck in the funnel because of inadequate funding. Near solutions are also available to private sector entities.

Governments looking to strengthen their investment strategy plans and to grow Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) will also find tailored-to-fit and affordable options.
The “creative director and design solutions” for packaging, events and toy making is among the exciting new decade of the ’20s solutions that have been rolled out by the company. That service desk is backed by an award winning, 10-year veteran with significant experience serving Asian markets.

Commodity traders, financial institutions and law firms involved in international trade finance, development strategy and policy will gain benefits and cost savings from utilizing available backstopping services.
While the company expects the bulk of its business in New York to come from government, NGOs and organizations involved in international development, it has developed a menu of solutions for Caribbean and African diaspora organizations and their leaders. Among them are non-profit corporate strategy planning, programme planning, evaluation and learning, behavior change marketing and organizational assessments.

Prospective clients can expect an adjunct team or individual expert to help them get to root cause and problem identification or both; help with finding solutions, alternatives or recommendations that they co-develop and own. Solutions come with strategic communication for ensuring shared understanding, commitment and action that drives change and strategy delivery.

“Now that we can sit across the table in the same location, US based clients can feel more confident in our local presence and commitment to serving them”, said Scott.

Like Magate Wildhorse Ltd in Toronto, Magate Wildhorse Inc., New York is synonymous with the key words “quality, affordability, relevance, evidence-based, and results-driven”.

How Caribbean Foods and Produce Exporters Sabotage Their Own Profits

One afternoon, while strolling between the aisles of Caribbean produce in a popular Toronto supermarket a man with a middle eastern accent walked up to me. He was holding a breadfruit in his hand, and he asked me if he could just wash, peel and eat the fruit. condimentsfrom how caribbeanI answered no, and explained that he would need to cook the fruit by roasting, baking or boiling before eating it.
The man’s curiosity regarding the fruit was obvious but, he returned it to the shelf because he was not sure how to prepare it. That incident represents just one of many occasions where Caribbean food exporters lost potential income as a result of their failure to educate consumers about their products.
For many the decision to export was driven by the need to increase both sales and income to proportions far exceeding the market size and capabilities of their local economies. The assumption that familiarity, national pride, and nostalgia make the national and Caribbean-wide Diaspora an easy and lucrative target market is only true to an extent. The approach of seeking to build a market in Canada through the ethnic niche is justified given Caribbean exporters could not possibly hope to dominate the market for foods and produce. But, applying those strategies and theories strictly within “that box”, may have contributed to costly complacency and a lack of creativity when it comes to the need for supporting exports with advertising and promotion.While the Diaspora is likely the largest consumer of Caribbean exports, its members are not likely to eat the same foods every day when there is much to explore and enjoy. Despite strong feelings of patriotism and love for things Caribbean the buyer’s decision will sometimes be swayed in favour of cost savings at a given point in time. In addition, many children of Caribbean emigrants are likely to consume more foods from the environment in which they grew up.
By focusing solely on the Diaspora and underestimating the culinary curiosity of the wider population of Canada and North America exporters miss out on the chance to increase sales and reach consumers with higher buying power. And in so doing they also forgo opportunities for growing and maintaining sustainable levels of sales on an ongoing basis.If you walk along the condiment aisle in any popular supermarket you are likely to find at least one customer of Non-Caribbean origin selecting and reading the labels of different Caribbean condiments. And if you appear to be of Caribbean origin he or she may then seek your advice on how to use it to create a dish they had. At times the item is returned to shelf because the potential customer does not have enough information to convince him or her that the product will produce the desired results or a recipe of how to use it effectively.
Scenarios such as the one described above reflects the failure on the part of exporters to capitalize on the appetite for Caribbean foods aroused by exposure at
• tradeshows supported by entities such as Caribbean Export Development,
• local festivals such as CARIBANA,
• the increasing presence of Caribbean restaurants on the culinary landscape and the ever-popular workplace potluck.

By investing a marginal portion of current earnings into activities such as recipe creation or repackaging and distribution, sampling in supermarkets, sponsoring quarterly or monthly live cook and taste in restaurants of the same national brand and contests, exporters could increase exposure to their products, produce and brands and in so doing leverage brand awareness to for building their equity.instorepromofromhowcaribbean
Publications such as the Metro, a daily newspaper which is read by more than [i]3 million readers weekly presents great opportunities for engaging and converting customers. The paper is available free of cost at every subway station and on every block in any public sphere throughout Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, Edmonton, Halifax and other cities in Canada, North America and Europe. There are also dozens of other local free publications which provides great opportunities for increasing brand recognition and influencing the attitude and purchase decision of millions of potential customers.

Although the vast majority of brands are still fairly new and unknown, Facebook, Twitter and the use of Blogs presents rich and largely unexploited opportunities for wining a share of the consumer’s mind and spend.
Apart from the traditionally well-established brands, many of the newer offerings lack distinctive marks and names which effectively distinguishes them beyond being Caribbean. This is also another missed opportunity for ensuring your product is recognizable and favoured by the customer at the critical moment of first or attempted repeat purchase in the aisle of a supermarket where he is surrounded by dozens of other similar products.
Any exporter who underestimates the role of sales promotion, the demand for nutritional and health related information as well as the opportunity to taste or benefit from a reward in influencing the purchase decision of the Canadian and north American customer will continue to sabotage his or her own efforts to grow sales, increase income, attract new customers and secure repeat purchases.
