So, what’s with the name “The Belay Group”?
Well if you are unfamiliar with the term “belay,” for those who climb rocks or try to ascend mountains, “belaying” is a critical part of the system and process. To belay is to support a climber in their efforts to reach the top – and that is exactly what we do for our clients! This name and the concept hold many meanings to us here at The Belay Group which also reinforces our core values:
-Integrity and Excellence
-Creativity and Teamwork
-Hardwork and Positive Attitude
To be a great belayer, requires all of these things. For those of who interact with us regularly, they get it! And for those just getting to know us, or who would like to, we look forward to putting these things into action for you and being your partner in reaching your goals.
(BTW – that’s another climbing term, meaning the belayer is fully engaged in supporting the climber and the climber knows they can confidently begin to ascend.)
