Andy Clark, LL.B. started Clarkie Consulting after observing first-hand that many business owners are overwhelmed and missing the structure needed to tie their big ideas to the daily actions required to implement them—resulting in a cycle of inefficiency, frustration, and unmet objectives.At Clarkie we believe that small business owners make the world go round. They are the creators of jobs and the drivers of our economy. But running a business is complicated. There are so many moving parts. So many variables. So many pressing concerns. So little time.
We wanted to find a way to make life a little easier for business owners. That's what led us to create the Whole PIE System. It breaks your business down into its essential components, which makes it easier to get your head around all the moving parts, and helps you identify key priorities from busywork. When you’re in the day-to-day trenches of running a business, it can be hard to tell the difference sometimes.
If at the end of the day we can help business owners be a little more profitable, make a bigger impact in the communities they serve, and enjoy the process of running their business a little bit more. . .well, that's a great day for us at Clarkie.

Our Core Values
As the Director of Operations for a successful hockey academy in Fredericton, NB I had the privilege of working with Andy Clark while our business was expanding. There were many unanswered questions that were on the table that my partners and I needed direction with, and Andy certainly did not disappoint. His timely responses, professional demeanour and courteous interactions with my team made what could have been a very difficult endeavour seamless. I would highly recommend his services to anyone searching for a combination of quality and excellence.” Champions Hockey Academy
Andy provided business consulting services and helped me create our company’s Purpose and Vision Statements, as well as our Core Values and Operating Principles. I enjoyed how Andy challenged me when needed and asked questions to bring more content into the discussions. He has all the tools and experience needed to help a business owner walk through an area of their business that they have never done before. I am very pleased with the outcome from this project and I am excited to work with him again in the future.
If you are like me, an entrepreneur with a big vision, but you are pulled in a million directions and can’t seem to get everything done, or don’t even know where to start, then you’ll never regret working with Andy! He will help you organize all the pieces of your business so they can all be better aligned and going/growing in the same direction. But the best part about Andy is his integrity and reliability – if he tells you he is going to do something – consider it done.
Andy helped us wrestle several key processes and projects to the ground which has made our business better. His keen ability to align big-picture objectives with the day-to-day actions to achieve them would be a huge benefit to any business looking to grow in a structured and sustainable way. If you want to take your business to the next level, Andy’s the guy who can help you get there.
Working with Andy has given us the focus, structure, and accountability we needed to achieve our significant growth targets over the last few years. He delivered on several key projects and initiatives – ranging from strategy to marketing to data security – that moved our brand and business forward and would likely never have gotten off the ground without his help. I highly recommend him.
I really enjoyed the Whole PIE Business Management System that Andy Clark introduced to our business. From defining our purpose, core values and value proposition, and setting three-year, one-year and ninety-day goals, he helped us establish a platform for our success. Best of all is the accountability system he helped us put in place, driven by key data for our business.
Andy helped us establish goals, key priorities, and action steps that align with our company’s purpose and core values. He also helped us implement the data-driven accountability structure we needed to keep us focused and on track to reaching our goals. Andy knows his stuff. We look forward to working with Andy and Clarkie Consulting as we continue to grow our business.
