Tea At Four is the LLC for Daniel R. Clarke, independent / freelance strategy consultant and entrepreneur.
Tea At Four is a Limited Liability Company registered in Delaware, USA, with its primary office in Denver, Colorado USA. I work with clients all over the world, regardless of time-zone, using collaborative e-tools.
Tea at four o'clock is a classic British ritual! In a bygone era, people would take afternoon tea to bridge the gap between lunch and dinner, often using it as an opportunity to catch up on 'gossip' with family & friends!
In today's world I find taking a break at 4pm with a relaxing cup of tea is a perfect opportunity to sit back and reflect on the bigger picture. It's a time to think. A time to re-center. A time to plan. This literal metaphor gets to the heart of the Tea At Four philosophy - that great strategies are carefully thought out, focused and actionable.
I identify as Asian and a direct member of the LGBTQ+ community. As the sole shareholder of Tea At Four LLC, this qualifies the company as 100% minority owned and 100% LGBTQ+ owned.
