Marketing Operations and Marketing Strategy
The Beckmann Collaborative Team
Candice Beckmann DeRiso, Owner & Small Business Strategist
Candice is a small business consultant and trainer who focuses on finding, attracting and retaining your ideal customers. Her professional journey includes marketing for Broadway shows, Carnegie Hall, high-tech companies, and a variety of small businesses including health and wellness practitioners over the past 12+ years.
A native New Yorker, Candice moved to Texas in 2011 after realizing the people in “her tribe” were fellow entrepreneurs and small business owners. She began pursuing a life focused on supporting the growth and development of small businesses using the skills most developed – communication, problem solving, and teamwork.
As the owner of Beckmann Collaborative, Candice brings together a team of professionals cooperatively supporting small business owners in achieving success. Her goal is to empower thousands of small business owners through workshops, online training and consulting in the areas of customer relationship management, content creation, market research, and marketing strategy.
Jeff DeRiso, Video Editor & Motion Graphics Specialist
Jeff is a film and video industry professional, specializing in post-production and creative direction. He has a unique reputation within the video production community as being a “no-nonsense” video editor who seeks to help clients understand video production as a holistic system, eliminate unnecessary work and processes, and as a result save some money.
Beckmann Collaborative, LLC began in May of 2013 when founder, Candice Beckmann DeRiso, saw an opportunity to support small business owners in succeeding despite the increasingly competitive market that had shifted to being more digital than traditional. She began writing and editing copy for clients – leveraging her growing interest in SEO (Search Engine Optimization). Over the first 3 years of the business, people took note of her professionalism and growing list of collaborative partners. The growth in collaborative partnerships caused her to take the business to the next level.
In 2015, the apprentice program was launched. This program sought to offer a space for young professionals looking to deepen their skills while getting paid to do client work. It was a grand experiment that may have been ahead of its time, so after 18 months the program was put on hold.
The decision to expand the business focus from one-to-one consulting to include professional development training happened in late 2017. After several speaking engagements and client training workshops, Candice saw the bigger opportunity for the future of Beckmann Collaborative. Corporate Training and Professional Development became the updated mission of the business, and Strategy Consulting will slowly shift into the premium product.
