ADVENT CORE VALUES

These five values, all 'I will be' statements, were chosen from the characteristics our team exemplifies each day. They are the standards we hold ourselves to.

I will be...

1. Clutch

I come through in crucial situations.   I respond confidently to adversity and challenges. I Get.Stuff.Done.

2. Creative Problem-Solver

I find innovative yet effective ways to overcome difficult situations. I am resourceful.

3. Relationally Intelligent

I care about how others think, feel and act— and adjust my actions accordingly. I am empathetic.

4. Agile

I adapt to the demands of the customer, my team, and the situation. I am flexible.

5. Selfless

I am humble, yet direct and accountable. I put the team and the customer first.

Advent

 

We are creative thinkers, problem solvers, and challenge seekers. We create experiences that will move your audience.

Our team is a quirky group of folks and talents—we're architects, falconers, sketch artists, 3-D modelers, musicians, MBA’s, marketing strategists, cheerleaders, typophiles, contractors, craftspeople, project managers, mathematicians, meat smokers, photographers, reporters, aerial silkists, writers, actors, moms and dads. We snack a lot. We like cookie Thursday, potlucks, food trucks, all kinds of music, gifs, campy films and giving back to our community.
