Vince Dong

Operational Consulting

Accountants know the books; consultants know the business. Add an expertise in agency software, and you have Vince Dong of Ad-Vice. Having worked in marketing communications agencies and consulting with them for over 30 years, he brings exclusive added value to Second Wind members.

Vince’s value comes from helping agencies throughout North America recognize that the recipe for success needs more than just good creative and marketing strategy. Using his knowledge as a CPA and CA along with his agency experience, Vince enables agencies to build a solid financial and organizational structure.

This means helping clients answer questions like:

  • Can I raise my rates?
  • How can I continue to be profitable in this changing industry?
  • How can I get fair value for my business?
  • What’s the most efficient way for me to manage my projects?
  • How can I sort through my financial data for leading indicators of strategic insights?

By providing answers to these questions—and more like them—Vince helps owners and partners grow from marketers into business people.

As a Second Wind consultant, Vince’s contribution is not limited to individual agencies. He is a regular speaker at our conferences where he tackles the topical and relevant real life issues our members face.

Using an honest approach, Vince brings you to the heart of the matter. This direct approach is born out of a genuine desire to see his clients thrive on both a professional and personal level.

Vince’s unique experience, qualifications, and personality work together to provide an empowering experience for all those that work with him. This is best summed up by Vince’s own brand signature: now you know what you have to do.
