Business & Marketing Consulting

500 years ago, in the Andes Mountains, the Inca Empire flourished as the largest and most sophisticated empire of the Americas. One day, the Inca king spoke with their shamanic elder, the healer of their people.

The king asked the elder, “what is the meaning of life?”

The elder inhaled deeply and responded, “the meaning of life is to celebrate life; all of life.”

The king reflected on this wisdom and then asked, “how does one celebrate life?”

To which the elder responded, “You celebrate life by living in harmony with the three cosmic laws: love, service and wisdom.”

What is a business consulting practice?

A business consultant is a problem solver. Every consultant has a different set of skills, based on their unique education, training and experience. Some specialize in finance and accounting, and others in strategy and marketing.

The Business Clinic is a business consulting practice that specializes in using scientific principles for market research, which informs our strategic planning. We then implement our strategy by educating and training your team to help you realize your business goals.

What is a digital marketing agency?

A digital marketing agency utilizes various digital media tools to help clients realize their business goals. Some agencies specialize in branding, others in website design, and some in online marketing tactics, like Google or Facebook.

The Business Clinic is a full-service digital marketing agency that specializes in conducting market research to inform our marketing strategy. This strategy is then implemented using digital media tools, such as branding, websites and online advertising.

Our Story

The Business Clinic was founded by Sarkis Hakopdjanian, an experienced business and marketing consultant with extensive education and training from Canada’s leading academic and corporate institutions.

After working for over 10 years in the corporate world, Sarkis decided to enroll back in school to study human behaviour through psychology. During his studies, he realized that many health practitioners are passionate about helping people with their health, but struggle with the business and marketing aspects of their practice. He chose to found The Business Clinic to support health practitioners in business and marketing.

The Business Clinic is a fast-growing and experienced team of business and marketing consultants, research analysts, copywriters, website designers and developers, as well as graphic designers. We are honoured to work with Alberta’s health and wellness professionals, supporting their vision to improve the health of our communities.
